We  have  returned  to  Ordinary  Time  in  the  Liturgical  Calendar.
This past Monday we celebrated the Baptism of the Lord which
marks the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry.  We are called to
participate  in  the  public  ministry  of  Christ  by  attending  to  the
needs  of  those  who  are  less  fortunate  and  to  announce  the
Kingdom  of God dwelling within each one of us.

Intentions  of Sr. Patricia  Gamgort,  O.S.B

I am encouraged by so many of our fellow parishioners who put
into  practice  the  corporal  and  spiritual works of mercy so that
Jesus  can  say  to  them –
you have done for the least of my brothers and sisters you have
done for me. Come,  enter into the glory of God.”

Vocations   (302-573-3113,   vocations@cdow.org).
