Whether you're a life-long parishioner, a member of another parish,
been away from the Church, curious about becoming
Catholic, or just interested in learning more about the
Catholic faith, we welcome you! We are a faith community praying, believing, and
living as disciples through prayer, faith formation, education, social activities, and
outreach to those in need. We invite you to fully be a part of the Saint Catherine Labouré
family! Please be in touch. We look forward to walking with you! God bless you!
Dear Parish Family:
When we celebrate the Baptism of the Lord, as we do today, it
offers us the opportunity to take a re-newed look at our own
Baptism and what it means to us. Baptism is the prime
sacrament for the Christian. Through Baptism, a person is
welcomed into the company of Jesus and a member of the Body
of Christ. The washing that takes place at Baptism cleanses us
from sin and makes us a new creation, filled with grace and called to be a witness
of the Resurrection of the Lord throughout our lives. Baptism literally gets us going
on the road to eternal life.
Our Lord was “Baptized” in the Jordan by John. Jesus did not need Baptism. He
had no sin to wash away. He had no need for conversion or a change of heart. He
didn’t need to be made into a new creation. He is the new creation itself! As we
will pray at Mass today: John baptized Christ, the giver of baptism, in waters made holy
by the one who was baptized. Jesus is the one who gave us baptism, not the other way
around. But, Jesus chose to be baptized in order to give us an example: that
through Baptism we are made new – we die to sin and rise to new life in Christ.
This is a wonderful mystery and a tremendous gift for us.
Today let’s think—really think—about what our Baptism means. This Sunday, as
we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord, it is an opportunity to remember our own
Baptism. Do we know where and when we were baptized? Who are our
godparents? What priest or deacon baptized us? Is there a picture of our Baptism?
Do we know where our baptismal candle and baptismal garment are?
I asked myself these questions and realized that I knew some but not all the
answers. I knew the church and who my godparents were (my aunt and uncle
Catherine and Richard Hastings) and so I contacted the church where I was
baptized (Saint Joseph Church on the Avenue of the Americas in New York City)
and found out that I was baptized on February 25, 1968 by Father Victor Raigan.
I challenge you to do the same.
While we are Baptized only once, living our Baptism is a choice and commitment
that we make every day, sometimes moment by moment. Living our Baptism is
called discipleship. And so as we celebrate the Lord’s Baptism and remember our
own, may we commit ourselves each day to live as authentic disciples of the
Lord—genuine friends of Jesus, ready to serve Him with our whole lives, praying,
believing, and living as disciples every day, moment by moment.
Love, grace, and peace,
Father Neil Sullivan

Our School Musical
In 1933, the United States was in the depths of the Great
Depression, which was not only an economic crisis, but
an emotional blow that shattered the hopes and dreams
of many Americans. In an orphanage in New York City at
that challenging time, there lived a little girl who rose
above her “Hard Knock Life” to invite us all to believe
“the sun will come out tomorrow.” Everyone knows that
sweet child was “Annie” who became not only part of a
Broadway show and movie, but will also be the star of
our School Musical for this Spring. The students have
begun their rehearsals as singers, dancers, and actors, as
well as stage crew and scenery artists. Some of the over
40 participants are: Nora Suknaic as “Annie,” Amelia
Barkman as “Miss Hannigan,” Matthew Yoffe as “Oliver
Warbucks,” Teresa Palmer as “Grace Farrell,” Ian
Peradilla as “Rooster Hannigan,” and Natalie Torta as
“Lily St. Regis.”
Can’t wait to see “Annie” on April 16/17!
Thank you and God bless you!

Mass in Celebration of African American
Catholic Faith and Culture
The diocesan Black Catholic Apostolate is planning a
liturgy in celebration of African American Faith and
Culture on Sunday, January 18, 2015 at 12:15 p.m. at Saint
Patrick Cathedral, 212 State Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101.
Bishop Gainer will be the celebrant and homilist. The
gospel choir from Saint Francis Xavier Roman Catholic
Church in Baltimore, Maryland, will provide the music for
what will be a dynamic and inspirational liturgy.
Week Of Prayer For Christian Unity
This special week will be celebrated from January 18-25,
2015.
The annual LARC (Lutheran-Anglican-Roman
Catholic) Vespers will be held on Sunday, January 25 at
7:00 p.m. at Saint Paul the Apostle Church, 125 South
Spruce Street, Annville. Bishop Gainer will preside and
will be joined by the Bishops of the Lutheran and
Episcopal communities of Central Pennsylvania.
Be sure to check the Catholic Witness newspaper and
www. hbgdiocese.org for more info on diocesan events.
If not, we invite you to register! Parish registration is more
important than many of us realize. In order for children to
receive the Sacrament of Baptism, Confirmation, or
Eucharist, their family must be registered in a Catholic
parish. To be married in the Catholic Church, at least one
party must be registered in a Catholic parish. Potential
godparents must get a letter from the parish where they
are registered to verify their eligibility to serve as a
godparent. When people wait to the last minute to request
this letter, they may not be able to get it right away if they
are not registered – so don’t delay! Registration helps us
know who you are and communicate important parish
info to you. Young adults (who have finished school) who
are registered under their parents should complete a new
registration. Registration is easy! Simply request a form
from the parish office or register at www.sclhbg.org - it’s
that simple! We’ll be happy to welcome you to our family!

he devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also
