The Ninevites heard the preaching of Jonah and repented of their evil ways, thus experiencing the Lord’s compassion. Do we repent when we hear the preaching of Jesus?
Do we invest our lives in the world rather than in God’s kingdom?

Job’s cry of hopelessness stands in marked contrast to the hope of those who put their

Tax Statements—If you would like a tax statement for your
contributions to the church for 2014, please provide a stamped,
self-addressed envelope to the church office. Please remember
to include your envelope number! If you did not use envelopes, but made your contributions by a check, we are also able to provide a tax statement. Please let us know that this was how you made
your contributions and we will be happy to put together a statement for
you. Statements will be issued beginning in January.

Finance Councils. Council members are now wearing name badges to
help you identify who they are. You are also invited to attend their meetings. The members are:

September, November, January, March, and May at 6 pm in the St.
Francis Room): Wes Brownfield Cristina Brownfield, Joyce Ford,
JoAnn French, Joe Merkley, Mike Miller, Al Parnell, Len Rechichar,
and Dorothy Swehla.
 Finance Council Members (Finance Council meetings are on the
2nd Thursday every month at 6 PM in the St. Francis Room.): Barbara Braendle, Mary Ellen Chavez, Mike Chavez, Linda Hill, Mike
Merchant, Rachel Smith and Leonard Venardos.
Smile! You’re on Catholic Camera! Secur ity cameras are operational here on the church property. This is
to help ensure the safety of our members, our resident
pastor, and our facility.
Attentions all Groups/Ministries—A sign up sheet for
our upcoming Friday night Lenten Stations of the Cross
and meatless soup and bread suppers (February 20
through March 27) has been placed in the sacristy. If
your group would like to lead the Stations of the Cross
beginning at 5:30 PM, and host the soup supper that follows, please sign
up as soon as possible. Each group provides a person (or persons) to
lead the Stations, and then provides the soups and bread for supper. The
parish will provide the paper goods (bowls, spoons, cups, napkins).
Typically, we do not offer dessert at these suppers as we are in Lent, but
that is a decision that the host group can choose to change. This Lenten
tradition here at St. Catherine’s is a wonderful way to spend time contemplating the sacrifice of Christ, while spending some time with the
very people He sacrificed for!
Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life
O God, throughout the ages you have called women and men to
pursue lives of perfect charity through the evangelical counsels
of poverty, chastity, and obedience. During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks for these courageous witnesses
of Faith and models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives
teaches us to make a more perfect offer-ing of ourselves to you.
Continue to enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who, having found the pearl of great price, treasure the
Kingdom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord Jesus
Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever. Amen.

“Window to Eternity” —Sponsored by the Ladies of St. Catherine
In mid-January, the Ladies of St. Catherine will be using the two windows in the vestibule
to establish a memorial consisting of 108 plaques that will cover the two windows, in
standard colors, with the name of a deceased loved one on each plaque. Name plaques
will be ordered and purchased from “A Better Sign” company. A sample plaque and order forms will be available in the vestibule at the beginning of January. Plaques cost
$27.50 per plaque (includes the tax and installation fee).
Payment will be made directly to A Better Sign company via check made payable to “A
BETTER SIGN.” Beginning in January, you may drop off a completed order form and
the check to cover the cost of each plaque in a sealed envelope to the church office with
“Window to Eternity” written on the outside of the envelope. This will be given to the
sign company representative when they come in. They will then contact you. Installation
will take place on a weekly basis until all of the available spots have been taken. FIRST
COME - FIRST SERVED. There are only 108 spaces available. You do not get to pick
the placement of the name, and the names will not be in alphabetical order. Please limit
your request to three (3) names.
Any questions, please contact the Ladies of St. Catherine. The office is not involved in
this project, and does not have any information regarding the window plaques. Thank you
for your cooperation!

Every year 1,370,000 lives are taken in the holocaust of abortion. The reason each of these precious lives is lost varies. You can help by
“spiritually adopting” one of these precious
souls. To help stop the anti-life push around the
world, the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen encouraged the spiritual adoption of an unborn child. This
is done by praying that the one particular but unknown child’s life be spared abortion and be allowed to continue to live. To help accomplish this,
it was recommended an individual say the following daily prayer for a period of nine months.
“Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very
much. I beg you to spare the life of [baby’s
name] the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.”
Prayer of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Your prayers CAN make a difference between
whether a baby will be born...or aborted. Our prayers can also be a form of spiritual support for both
of the parents. Please share the love of life given to
you by the Lord of all life and join in spiritually
adopting a baby.
Beginning in July, St. Catherine Labouré parish
“adopted” one such child. Her name is Catherine. We will follow her progress as she develops
week by week until her birth in April. As part of
this process, we are encouraging everyone to make
an extra effort to save their pocket change and place
it in the collection jar for Birthline.
Over the next seven days the lungs
will develop fast in preparation for
delivery which is not too far away.
A layer of cells are forming a lining
in the air sacs to produce a liquid
called ‘surfactant’ that serves to
prevent these air sacs from collapsing between each breath when the baby begins to
breathe after birth.
This week the vernix and lanugo will gradually begin
to fade and Catherine’s skin will grow softer and
smoother. She will have grown quite plump by now
as her skin begins to fill out.
Catherine now measures about one foot and three and
a half inches or 39cm. and weighs approximately
three pounds and two ounces or 1.4kg.
Don’t forget—money donated to our Pocket Change for
Life program goes to help mothers choose Life for their
unborn babies!

Infant Baptismal Preparation requirements
Classes in English - Instructor Deacon Michael Holmes.
Parent/Godparent classes are required if you have not attended Baptismal Preparation classes in the past 2 years. Please contact the church office if you have any
questions, or to register.
Requirements to attend Baptismal Preparation classes at St. Catherine’s:
San Raimundo de Peñafort, patrón de canonistas
(Festividad - 7 de enero) Nacido en España, St. Raymond era un pariente del rey de Aragón. Desde niño
tenía un tierno amor y la devoción a la Santísima Virgen. Terminó sus estudios a una edad temprana, y se
convirtió en un famoso maestro. Luego renunció a todos sus honores y entró en la Orden de los Dominicos.
San Raimundo era muy humilde y muy cerca de Dios.
Lo hizo mucha penitencia y era tan bueno y amable
que ganó muchos pecadores con Dios. Con el rey Jaime de Aragón y San Pedro Nolasco fundó la Orden de
Nuestra Señora de la Merced. El valiente religioso de
esta Orden se dedicaron a salvar pobres cristianos
capturados por los musulmanes.
Una vez que se fue con el Rey James a la isla de Mallorca para predicar acerca de Jesús. King James era
un hombre de grandes cualidades, pero se dejó dominar por las pasiones. Hay en la isla, también, que estaba dando mal ejemplo. El Santo le ordenó despedir
a la mujer. El rey dijo que lo haría, pero no mantener
su promesa. Así San Raimundo decidió abandonar la
isla. El Rey declaró que castigaría a cualquier capitán
de barco que trajo el Santo de regreso a Barcelona.
Poniendo toda su confianza en Dios, San Raimundo
extendió su manto sobre las aguas, atado una esquina
de la misma a un palo de una vela, hizo la señal de la
cruz, salió a la capa, y navegó a lo largo de seis horas
hasta que llegó barcelona. Este milagro se trasladó al
Rey. Estaba arrepentido de lo que había hecho, y se
convirtió en un verdadero seguidor de San Raimundo.
San Raimundo tenía cien años de edad en el momento de su muerte.

Canon Law, cannot be Baptized as an "infant."

For three weeks during Lent, (beginning Sunday, February 15th and ending Sunday,
March 8th) the Ladies of St. Catherine’s and members of our Family (parents and students) Catechesis programs will be participating in a joint effort to assist abused women
and children through the local Stepping Stones organization.
A basket will be placed in the vestibule to accept donations of personal items (during the three weeks
listed above) that are needed, such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, hair brushes, bars of soap,
hand lotion, shampoo, deodorant, bath towels, washcloths, and feminine items. Abused women who
must leave their home situations, often times with only the clothes on their backs due to violence,
can avail themselves of the services at Stepping Stones for up to 90 days while they seek safe living
arrangements for themselves and their children. The need is great in our area for women and children in these unsafe situations, so please be generous. If you have questions, please contact any
member of the Ladies Guild or teacher in our R.E. programs.
