CALLED TO SERVE
For many weeks now, we have been celebra ng the appearance of the divine presence in human form. As a child, he came to Mary and Joseph, was seen by the shepherds, and then by some wandering magi from the East. Today we celebrate another showing, later in
me, to a group gathered at the Jordan River.
John hesitated to bap ze Jesus, whom he recognized as “one migh er than I.” But he did as Jesus asked, and the “Holy Spirit descended” and heaven’s voice spoke to Jesus, “You are my beloved Son.” Jesus was beginning his public life of teaching and service. Soon he would start calling others to join him.
Peter was one of the first to be called by Jesus. In today’s second reading, he announces the heart of the message, “peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.” Peter was called, and you and I are called to spread that message and to serve God’s word.

At least once a year, Chris ans are reminded of Jesus’ prayer for his
disciples that “they may be one so that the world
may believe” (see John 17.21).
Hearts are touched and Chris ans come together
to pray for their unity.
The event that touches off this special experience is the Week of Prayer for
Chris an Unity.
Tradi onally the week of prayer is celebrated between 18-25 January, between the feasts of St Peter and St Paul. In the southern hemisphere, where January is a
vaca on me, churches o en find other days to celebrate it, for example around Pentecost, which is
also a symbolic date for unity.
The theme for the week of prayer in 2019, "Jus ce, and only jus ce, you shall pursue ..." is inspired by
The resources for the week have been prepared by members of different churches in Indonesia. See

Father Tully and Father Schmid (and our Deacons) would like to spiritually support those who have returned or are returning to their homes a er flooding from Hurricane Florence. If you are now in a new home or returning to a reconstructed home, we would like to visit for prayer and a house blessing. Call the Parish Office (252-638-1984) to let us know and to invite us over. We will not impose – no social me or any food is a part of this – and certainly no “dona on” or other gi will be accepted! This is part of a healing ministry to recover from all that you have suffered. It would be our honor to surround you in your home with prayers for safety and blessing. It is a great way to mark a return to some measure of normalcy. Please ask.

Dear Friends at Saint Paul: As we end the Christmas season and begin Ordinary Time with the Feast of the Bap sm of the Lord, I want to thank all the “elves” who gave of their me and talent to make our Christmas celebra on so great. I especially want to thank the decorators and the choirs! I want to thank planners, ushers, readers, servers, sacristans, office staff and volunteers, Boun ful Tree Commi ee members, and Father Rob and … thanks be to God, of course! Did I men on the decorators and choirs! Thanks to all. Our parish school is making a special invita on to all Catholic school alumni, from any Catholic School anywhere, to a recep on a er the Wednesday morning School Mass on January 30, 2019 from about 10:00am to 11:00am. Catholic Schools Week this year is the same week as our Parish Mission at the end of January. Many of the Saint Paul School children will be observing this wonderful me to celebrate Catholic schools with ac vi es, service projects, art work, science fair and special recogni on for teachers, parents and their friends at school – as well as our Parish Mission! There are so many of us that went to Catholic school – and loved them – and we are from all over, so there are probably lots of schools represented among us. I wonder if there are more Catholic School alumni NOT from Saint Paul as there are s ll so many Saint Paul alumni in New Bern? That would be fun to find out: Wednesday, January 30, 9:00am School Mass and then Recep on at the school a erwards. Please go out of your way during Mission Week to affirm how central the school is to the mission of the Parish at this Recep on. This will mean a lot to our School children! Finally, there is a great web site to s mulate our prayer and prepara on for our Parish Mission: Stories of Catholic Conversion .. go to h p://whyimcatholic.com/ It is truly an eye-opening read!
