Baptism of the Lord – Sunday, January 10th, 2021

Bulletin Announcements are due to the Parish office before 11:00 a.m. on the Monday before publication. Please call the parish office to submit an announcement.


In your prayers kindly remember the sick and those who care for them, the lonely, the handicapped, those isolated, and those who have died especially, Bernadette LeBlanc.

INTRODUCTION TO THE LITURGY – Theme: Baptism: Actualizing the Promise – Baptism is called the gate of the sacraments or the entrance way to the church itself. All the promises of salvation, converging from various biblical sources, become real in baptism. The baptism of Jesus is found in three gospels, each with a different shade of meaning. But more than the baptism of Jesus is recounted; The Father acknowledges Jesus as Son and favored one, upon whom God’s Spirit rests. In this recognition, there are echoes of the first servant song, our first reading today. In the reading from Acts. There is emphasis on the access to salvation now open to all people.

Notice from the Rectors Desk – Since Premier Ford announced the lockdown, in light of this, Fr. Jim will continue with weekend and daily masses and since only 10 people can be present in the church for mass including the priest, parishioners may stay in their cars in the church parking lot and tune in at 88.1 radio station and Fr. Jim will gladly come out and give communion as you stay in the comfort of your car.
