FROM THE DESK OF THE ADMINISTRATOR It’s hard to believe that the Christmas Season comes to a close today. The trees and poinsettias will be coming down. Our churches will look so bare without all that extra stuff to which we have grown accustomed to seeing these past weeks. Volunteers are needed at all sites to accomplish the undecorating after the last Mass of Sunday. I believe that in most cases, there eventually will be poinsettias looking for a new home. You will be welcome to take them when they are available with ONE stipulation: Make sure you don’t leave a trail of leaves behind you! Those plants do like to shed! Please be kind to all our volunteer church cleaners by cleaning up after yourself! On Monday evening I will be meeting with our Advisory Councils to begin plotting our course to the future. While I have used the term previously, it is a generic group reference to the Parish Pastoral and Finance Councils of our four parishes. These women and men represent you to help me and the clergy team in dreaming about and running our parishes. Please keep them in your prayers. The purpose of the meeting is to begin reviewing the surveys and what actions we may be able to undertake as suggested. In case you were wondering, 503 surveys were submitted. I have looked at every single paper survey and electronic response. I appreciate the small team that helped me collate the paper copies. I do hear the cries and needs. At the same time, remember that this On Mission for the Church Alive! Planning Process is about “we” not “me”. This is a new time that calls for new procedures and ways of living. The Church will be looking different in how we work in and with the world. It will take time for this all to unfold. Please be patient and most especially, pray. Perhaps the most overwhelming survey suggestion was that there be more Masses offered at each parish at all hours of the day. Well…I want you to consider our “clergy budget”. Officially we have three Priests assigned to the parish. One day that may be reduced to only two. While we are blest to have two residents, they do not factor into our “budget”. In addition, the three of us are entitled to a day off each week. I am nicely saying that some tweaking of the schedule may be possible as we live within our means. See you in Church!

GUIDE BOOK & DIRECTORY ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITY We are in the process of updating our annual Guide Book & Directory for the church. This year, all 4 parishes of our grouping will be included. This book will contain everything pertinent to the churches: the various ministries, organizations, committees, activities, functions and events plus a complete directory of all members. This book is being provided and direct-mailed to each family at no cost to the churches, and it is being subsidized by local businesses that advertise. If you own or manage a business and would like to find out about advertising in our Grouping's Guide Book, please call the Church Office by 1/25/19. Recent survey results by Guide Book Publishing show that 92.1% of families would rather patronize a Guide Book & Directory advertiser over a non-advertiser. It “will pay” to advertise in our new Guide Book & Directory.
UPDATE MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION Does our Church database have YOUR family membership record correct? Here is your chance to update YOUR record for our annual Guide Book & Directory (if you haven’t already done so). It is time for us to update our database with any changes, additions, or deletions that may have occurred in your family over the past year. Have you changed your phone number? Have you moved, or are preparing to move soon? If you have not already informed the Church Office about changes to your record, please let us know now so that the information in the Guide Book & Directory is correct. Do you want your record published? If not, please notify the Church Office by 1/25/19. Normally, your name, address and phone number would appear in the Guide Book. If there are certain pieces that you would prefer not to appear in the Book, please notify us by phone call (412-821-4424), email, or stop by the Church Office by Friday, 1/25/19.

CALLED TO SERVE
FRIENDLY LITURGICAL REMINDERS
For many weeks now, we have been celebrating 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 time, to a group gathered at the Jordan River. John hesitated to baptize Jesus, whom he recognized as one mightier 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.
As we enter into a new year, it is a good time for all of us to remind ourselves of some of the liturgical practices. First of all, many of the regulars who attend HS and SN are probably a bit tired of hearing the announcement about turning off all cell phones, electronic devices and how inappropriate texting during Mass is. But it works, doesn’t it? Secondly, we announce that people should remain in their pews until the celebrant has left the sanctuary which occurs during the singing of the Recessional Hymn. That includes people who bolt out the door immediately after receiving Holy Communion. Leaving at Communion time is disrespectful to the Lord’s presence. Thirdly, please respect everyone’s need for sacred silence especially before Mass. Some people actually come earlier to pray and prepare themselves for Mass. That is not the time for chatter and social conversations. Please take these reminders in the spirit in which they are given! Holy Spirit, inspire us. St. Nicholas, pray for us. St. Bonaventure, pray for us. All Saints, pray for us.

SELF-DISCIPLINE The greatest of all warriors in the siege of Troy had not the preeminence because nature had given him strength and he carried the largest bow, but because selfdiscipline had taught him how to bend it. --Daniel Webster
YOU ARE MY BELOVED SON, WITH YOU I AM WELL PLEASED – As Jesus was being baptized by John in the Jordan River we are told of amazing things happening. First, the heavens were opened and the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus in the form of a dove. Then, the voice of God the Father from heaven thundered, saying, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” Jesus did not need to be baptized for the same reason we do. As the Son of God, he was without sin. Yet, to be baptized is to be anointed to fulfill the mission of God the Father in the world. By being baptized in the Jordan, Jesus set an example for us to follow. Through baptized we are freed from original sin, sanctified by the Holy Spirit to share in the life of God through the Sacraments and in the Church, and anointed to fulfill the mission of faith, hope, and love that God the Father has chosen for us. While the Holy Spirit does not descend like a dove he is present in and through the baptized from the moment of baptism. And while the walls of the church do not shake with the thundering voice of the Father, the halls of heaven ring with joy as every new beloved son and daughter of God is welcomed into the life of faith through baptism. Our baptism was not simply a ritual, but a life-changing event that is in effect throughout our lives. How can the grace of baptism continue to be at work for the good of our parishes and communities? Visit onmissionchurchalive.org to learn more and to stay informed.
