Despite John the Baptist’s consternation that he is unworthy, Jesus presents himself to his cousin for baptism in the Jordan River. Jesus’ public ministry begins with a parallel to the end: he plunges beneath the waters as he would later die, then rises as he would at Easter, into eternal life. After he arises from the water, the heavens open, he sees the Spirit coming upon him like a dove and hears the words of confirmation that will sustain him through all of the temptations and trials that will confront him: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
Holy Family’s monthly coffee hour resumes next Sunday, January 19 following the 10:30 Mass. Our Catholic faith is about relationship, about community. Please join us in the parish office for coffee and goodies following Mass next Sunday.

It was one of the great wishes of St. Pope John Paul II that the Christian churches reunite. Think of the force for good in the world we would be if that were accomplished and we all spoke with one voice. The churches in and around Little Falls have been coming together for just such a purpose for the past four Advents with an evening of prayer and reflection. As has been said many times: the things that we believe in common are much greater than the things that separate us. The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity begins next Saturday, January 18.

This week’s items for the food pantry are; peanut butter, pancake mix, syrup, canned fruit
Monetary donations are always appreciated.
