THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

GOOD NEWS!   Jon 3:1–5, 10 / 1 Cor 7:29–31 / Mk 1:14–20


    Whether he knew it or not, Jonah was one of the most powerful prophets in Israel. He had scarcely started on his journey through Ninevah when the entire city under the direction of the king expressed sorrow for their sins and turned God’s judgment to mercy. I think we all hope we might be that effective in our jobs.

    If we to continue to read the book of Jonah, though, we find that he wasn’t so happy about this turn of events—he felt it made him look weak. Did he not predict the destruction of Ninevah if they failed to repent?

    But for now, we see a people so moved by the Word of God that they immediately change their behavior. In Mark’s Gospel, Christ’s invitation is just as compelling for the four fishermen who abandon their nets and their father by the sea and immediately change their direction and their lives.

    I have a hard time imagining the words that would make me drop everything to follow a completely different path. Certainly I’ve taken the advice of friends and family or have responded to circumstances that demanded a new direction, but only after reflection and prayer—but it took considerably longer than a single moment.

    The power of the Good News, however, is unlike any other to those who are opened to it. When we really hear God’s voice, our hearts yearn to be in his presence and, though not always easily, our souls and minds bend to his will.

    How is God’s Word calling you to change today?

Re: Level 3 Snow Emergency Guidelines for the Diocese of Toledo

On 26 November 2014 the Most Reverend Daniel E. Thomas, Bishop of Toledo, accepted the following text as the official policy of the Diocese of Toledo relating to Level 3 Snow Emergencies. This policy is effective immediately.


Whenever a county/city within the Diocese of Toledo is placed under a Level 3 Snow Emergency, during which all roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel, the Catholic Churches within that geographic region will cancel the scheduled Saturday Vigil, Sunday, or Holy Day Masses. Roman Catholics in that region, therefore, are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass. If Masses are cancelled, Catholics are encouraged to participate in Holy Mass via television, radio, or Internet, making a spiritual Communion. When Mass is cancelled, all other diocesan, parish, or school events in that geographic region are also cancelled.

Christmas Mass Times Input

We are happy that so many of you were able to celebrate the Joy of Christmas with us this year. Finding the best Mass times and places to accommodate the most people on Christmas Eve is a challenging task, especially since family traditions have been built around the Mass schedules that we have had in the past.


The 4 pm Christmas Eve liturgy has typically been the most attended liturgy. However, we would be interested to hear from you what other possible Mass times might work well for you and your family. For example, perhaps a 7 pm Mass might work better than 6:30 pm. or a 10 pm Mass might be preferable to midnight.


Please take a few moments to share what time you think would work best for you and your family. The survey can be found by clicking on the link below.


Please respond to the survey by February 2nd.
