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.

Used with permission. “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). NO MONEY TRANSACTIONS WILL BE HANDLED BY THE CHURCH OFFICE!!! 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!

The definition of registered, active, and participating varies by parish, but usually includes attending Mass regularly as well as contributing with an envelope to the offertory along with supporting the ministry life of the parish. If you have questions about your family’s status, please contact your pastor directly. (Note: All Diocesan high school students receiving the reduced tuition rate for the coming year must have their status verified by their home pastor before they can be registered as Catholic.) Una nota de la Diócesis para los padres de familia que inscriben sus hijos para el año escolar 2015-2016 a la escuela Sagrado Corazón: par a recibir una reducción de la Taza de Matricula Católica de la escuela, su párroco deberá determinar si su familia cumple con el criterio definido por la parroquia sobre miembros Inscritos, Activos y Participando. La definición de inscrito, activo y participando varia por parroquia, pero normalmente incluye asistiendo a Misa en forma regular también como contribuyendo al sostenimiento de la parroquia por medio de su ofrenda en sobre y apoyando a la vida ministerial de la parroquia. Si tiene alguna duda sobre el estatus de su familia, por favor comuníquese con su párroco directamente. (Nota: Todos los alumnos de la secundaria de las escuelas diocesanas quien reciben la taza reducida de la matrícula del año entrante, deberán tener su estatus verificado por su párroco antes de que puedan inscribirse como Católicos.) God’s Word, Your World! Reflections and Actions for Catholic Teens! 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. THE LIFE OF CATHERINE WEEK 31 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.

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 RAIMONDO DE PENAFORT 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. • Parents must be registered at St. Catherine Labouré Roman Catholic Parish in order to have their child Baptized in our parish.
