As you place your gift in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul
poor box, know that you are a sign of God’s love to those
who are suffering and you give them reason to believe and
to trust.
In the Gospel today, Jesus asks “What are you looking
for?” Often we are looking for happiness in very selfish
ways, but we find that when we look for ways to make
others happy, it is then that we truly become happy.

The Bishop’s Appeal 2015 begins with a mailing that many of our
parishioners have received or will soon receive. This is a mailing
from Bishop Stika asking for a generous pledge to this year’s
Your gift not only funds many of the operations of the Diocese of
Knoxville, it funds services that are of great help to the ministries
here in our parish.
This year, the theme of the Appeal is “Answering His Call”. Each
Appeal gift enables the Diocese to build up the kingdom of God
throughout East Tennessee. God gives us all that we have. Even
when we want to believe that our successes are self-made, we know
that it is God who has blessed us abundantly with all we have. He is
always giving to us. His grace is always there for us. One way that
we can show our gratitude is by offering our generous financial
support to our parish and to our Diocese and to the Church
throughout the world. The gifts that we give enable ministries,
education and services that touch thousands of lives.
Our parish goal is $23,100. With your support, we can reach and
exceed this goal. Please answer Bishop Stika’s request and make a
generous pledge. All pledges can be paid in ten installments. Thank
you in advance for your support.

Recommended for Parents & their Confirmands
Parents, have you had “the talk” with your child? Do you know what you are going to say? Do you need some assistance getting the
conversation started or just need opportunities to continue with success? Don’t worry…help is here!
Join us at St. Stephen’s Parish Center on Saturday, February 7th, 2015, 8:30am-3:30 pm for Real Love & Real Life. Parents, this program is
designed for you and your 8th grader. (Parents & their 7th or 9th graders are also invited.) It will bring you together with other parish
families to learn about love, life, chastity and God’s gift of sexuality. You and your child will have the chance to enhance your
communication skills, discuss true worth, guidelines for future dating and lots more. Here, one parent shares what they liked most about the
program, “It opened a door for me that wasn’t open before between my daughter and me. I definitely feel more comfortable and confident
discussing chastity with her.”
Real Love & Real Life is a fun, unique, interactive program presented by Family Honor, Inc. The deadline for registering is January 30th.
Space is limited so register early online There is no charge for this program (though donations will be requested).
