This Week's Readings
First Reading: Isaiah 35:1-6a, 10
Isaiah tells us that when Christ comes, the weak will be made strong, the deaf will hear, the blind will see, and, above all, “sorrow and mourning will flee.”
Second Reading: James 5:7-10
As the farmer waits patiently through winter and spring for the “yield of the soil” so, too, must we wait patiently for the coming of the Messiah.
Gospel: Matthew 11:2-11
While in prison, John sends a messenger to Jesus to ask, “Are you He who is to come or do we look for another?” Jesus replies by citing the miracles he has performed for the blind, the deaf, and the crippled. He concludes by identifying John as the messenger He has sent to prepare the way. ©2000 Bon Venture Services, Inc.
Our parish is in dire need of Sacristans.
Sacristans open up our church for Mass and other services, set up the necessary items for use for the Mass, stand ready to assist the priest as needed and lock the church afterwards. Experienced Sacristans can train you and provide assistance to you as you learn.
Our parish needs you to consider coming forward to become a Sacristan.
Please contact the parish office if you are interested and want to learn more. Thank you.
Food Pantry Collection
I hope you are staying safe during these uncertain times. Although we cannot collect and donate food at this time, the Faith in Action Food Pantry is desperately seeking monetary donations in order to buy much needed food and other necessities.
If you can help, please send your checks payable to Faith in Action and mail to P.O. Box 249 Galena, MD 21635.
Even the smallest donation will help our many neighbors in need ... every little bit helps!
