    Have you begged God to reclaim una ached, or scandalized, or apathe c Catholics to be intrigued by Grace, to be renewed, to

    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

    Deuteronomy 16:18-20.

    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.
