    OUR MISSION STATEMENT

    SS. Peter & Paul Parish, a community of faith called by God to deepen

    our relationship with Jesus Christ, serves the Lord by sharing our time,

    talent and treasure. As disciples of Christ, we are called to bring Jesus

    Christ to ourselves and others: our children, the sick, the poor, the fallen

    away Catholics and those who need to hear God’s message of uncondi-

    tional love and forgiveness. SS. Peter & Paul Parish is a beacon of light

    rooted in Jesus Christ, passed on to his successor, our Holy Father the

    Pope, and is guided by our local bishop to build the Kingdom of God on

    Earth. It is our mission to shine the light of Jesus Christ in our world and

    to spiritually enrich the individual members of the parish as well as the

    larger community through word, worship, sacrament and service.

    Youth Group meets 6 pm Feb. 14 in JFK Hall.

    Join Matt Kelly for the Best Lent Ever: Rediscover Jesus

    Using Matt Kelly’s bestselling book “Rediscover Jesus” as a base, join the email program and make a 40-day spiritual

    journey to encounter Jesus – and yourself – in a deeply personal way and nourish a habit of daily prayer.

    Sign-up on line at DynamicCatholic.com/Lent and you will receive a daily email with a short video that will

    guide you through the 40 chapters of the book. It seems like a very simple way during Lent to bring Jesus into our lives

    leading to a more personal relationship with Him. The whole family can participate.

    Lent is not just about giving things up. Lent is about doing something. Do something bold. Become a better

    husband, father, wife, mother, friend, etc. This program should help you do that. If you need a copy of the book, some

    are at the entrance to the church or see Fr. Ed ASAP.

    Free Bible Study Online—Begins this week

    “The Bible and the Blessed Virgin Mary,” a free twelve-week Bible study with Dr. Scott Hahn, is being offered online

    beginning February 10, 2016. Each 30 minute segment will remain online for one and a half weeks, so you can still en-

    joy the first one. See how Mary was prefigured in the Old Testament, what the Gospels reveal about her, and how the

    early Church understood her. For details and to sign up for this Journey through Scripture, visit www.stpaulcenter.com.
