Text Box: Last week  the second collection for the Seminary Fund  amounted to 
$ 823.00. 

This week, the 2nd collection is for the Parish Development.

       Today, on Sunday, January 25, at our 10:30 a.m. Mass; our new inquirers will be taking a close look at the first step towards baptism and other sacraments. We will be talking about acceptance. Acceptance is a big step in being a Christian in the Roman Catholic Church. This step will say to the members of this parish and the church at large, that they are ready to accept that Jesus is becoming a very important part of their daily lives. 
       I invite all of you, parishioners of St. Margaret Mary, to support these disciples on their journey to the Eucharist, Confirmation, and Baptism. Please pray for their intentions.

Next week we celebrate – First Thursday - February 5, - a day of special prayer for our priests, religious & seminarians. After 6.00PM Holy Mass, we expose the Blessed Sacrament and we celebrate THE HOLY HOUR.  First Friday - February  6th. After the Holy Masses, we expose the Blessed Sacrament and recite the Litany to the Sacred Heart, followed by Benediction. An extra Mass for home-schooling children & their parents will be at 9.30AM. Other Parishioners are also welcomed to come and to pray with us if you have  time. First Saturday - February 7th.  After 8.00AM Mass, there will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary will be recited.

Text Box: Sunday Scripture
       Now is the time to respond to God - seize every grace - filled moment.
      God blesses us with opportunities that can move us forward on the road to salvation. Our minds and hearts are to be open to recognizing these moments of grace, so we can take full advantage of them. Whenever we listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit within us, it can be a time of spiritual growth on the way to eternal life.
       In our first reading we hear that, through the preaching of Jonah, the Ninevites returned to God. In our second reading Paul tells the Corinthians that they are to live in readiness to meet the Lord. In the Gospel, we hear about the first Apostles and how they heeded the voice of Christ and responded immediately with their lives.
