Have you ever thought of giving
the gift of stock to generate an
income tax charitable deduction?
Cashing in your stock investment
comes with a price tag in the form of
capital gain tax. Many charitable
minded taxpayers have discovered
that they can reduce or even
eliminate capital gain tax by using
their appreciated investments to fund
their charitable objectives. A well
planned gift of stock may let you
generate an income tax charitable
deduction based on the full fair
market value of the stock. Check with your
investment counselor to see if this might work for you!

The Fifth Sunday
Dear Friends,
in Ordinary Time
The Gospel for this Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time makes it clear: we are made for
service. We heard that as soon as Jesus healed Simon’s mother-in-law, she began to serve.
And Jesus, who would rather rest himself, works every day and all hours for healing and
preaching. What a contrast to what we heard in the first reading from Job, who complains of
his life’s drudgery. Even though our life too at times may feel like drudgery, we are
constantly challenged to stir ourselves to service for it is in this that life has true and lasting
meaning.
Next weekend we will kick-off our annual participation in the Catholic Charities
Appeal. You should have already received a direct mailing from the archdiocese concerning
this very important work of charity. The 2015 Catholic Charities Appeal: GIVING HOPE,
continues to build on last year’s success and reaches out to all members of the archdiocese.
Last year our parish goal was $65,364.00. Through your outstanding generosity we
reached 91% of our 2014 goal with a total contribution of $59,580.00. Our goal for this
year’s appeal will remain the same. Next weekend there will be a video presentation by
Archbishop Chaput concerning the works of this Appeal. I invite you into Monsignor Marley
Hall for coffee and donuts next Sunday and to hear the message of the archbishop. I am again
grateful to Bill and Sheila Fehrman who work in chairing this important work of charity for our
parish.
Who will benefit from our sacrifices to this Appeal? Catholic Social Services who works to
meet the material and emotional needs of the poorest and most vulnerable among us receives some
of your contribution. Catholic Special Education benefits families and children with special needs
in providing the necessary tools and education to assist in making this special group of our brothers
and sisters productive and contributing members of the community at large. Many elderly priests
who have given their lives in service to the faithful are cared for by this Appeal. The Appeal also
assists Mission Parishes within the archdiocese to provide vital programs such as food banks, family
assistance, health services and care for their elderly. The Office for Life and Family receives
support for their work in pastoral guidance to those in need. Also, some funding is used to assist the
immigrant population which comprises a significant portion of our Church in Philadelphia. As you
can see, many of those most in need are given hope through your sacrificial giving. Please be as
generous as your means allow to this most worthy cause.
May Saint Robert Bellarmine, our patron and powerful intercessor, pray for us and guide
our work on behalf of the most needy and vulnerable in our local church!

APPLE OF MY EYE: Congratulations to
our latest Apple of My Eye winners: Matt
McGlinchey, Joe Aquino, Antonia
Mastrocco, Juliana Tulio and Matt Sorge.
YEARBOOK ORDERS: Each year, our school yearbook
is filled with wonderful pictures and
student art work and memories of the
year gone by. Copies may be ordered at
$20/each. Please check today’s
communication for information about
how to order your copy of this year’s
SJR Yearbook.
GENTLE REMINDERS: Just a few reminders for the
upcoming week:
 Our “Open Gym” for children
five years of age and under
takes place every Monday
from 12noon until 1:30pm in
Monsignor Marley Hall.
 Please know that whenever
possible, we will take the
children out for some time
during lunch recess. Please be
sure they are dressed appropriately.
 BLOCS financial applications: Applications for
financial assistance through the BLOCS Foundation
are available online at www.psas.org/blocs The site
also has a Frequently Asked Questions tab to assist
with the process.
FROM THE COUNSELOR: Enclosed in today’s
information is some information
about how to foster conversations
with the children about their day in
school. They are a different take
on “How was school today?”
Mrs. Reid will be setting a date
soon to have a Chat with the Counselor in February. Her
topic will be “Sibling Rivalry”.
JUST A THOUGHT: During the Confirmation retreat on
Sunday, the student-candidates were charged with
choosing one of the gifts of the
Holy Spirit and consciously
seeking to use it daily. These gifts:
Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel,
Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and
Fear of the Lord were given to us
all. I wonder what a difference
would be made in the world if we
all consciously tried to use one of
these gifts in our daily words and
actions?
SJR CYO: The CYO board would like to thank
everyone for coming out last Saturday night and
supporting our fundraiser at the annual Super
Bowl party. We also would like to thank the many
volunteers that gave up time from their busy
schedule to help with setup, cooking, serving, and
clean up. Mark your calendars for next years
party on Saturday, February 6, 2016.

FOCUS ON FAITH
FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Mark 1:29-39; Job 7: 1-4,6-7; 1 Corinthians 9:16-19,22-23
Today we continue to read from Mark's Gospel, learning more about the ministry
of Jesus. Jesus cured Simon's mother-in-law, and she immediately began to serve
Jesus and his disciples. Jesus also cured many others who were brought to him,
healing their illnesses and driving out demons. As we will see throughout Mark's
Gospel,
Jesus did not permit the demons to speak because they knew his
identity and would have revealed it to those who were present. On the morning
after this busy day, Jesus retreated in prayer, but was pursued by Simon and
others who brought news that many people were looking for him. At this point in
Mark's Gospel, we begin to see a distinct role for the inner circle of Jesus'
disciples—they act as intermediaries between Jesus and the people. Jesus reports
to his disciples that they need to leave Capernaum to preach in other places.
In today's Gospel we also notice the importance of prayer Jesus' daily life. Jesus rose early in the
morning, removed himself from the crowds, and went to a deserted place to pray. When the disciples found
him, he told them that it was time to move on. We believe that in his prayers Jesus found guidance and
direction from God. We also bring our decision-making to God in prayer, asking for his guidance and direction
in our lives.
Consider joining us before daily Mass to pray Morning Prayer during Lent!
CHECK OUT THE ENCLOSED FLYER ON OUR PARISH TRIP TO THE PASSION PLAY ON MARCH 21.

Happy Together
THE DATE NIGHT OPPORTUNITY - A report by the National Marriage Project at the
University of Virginia identifies one-on-one "couple time", as an opportunity to strengthen a
marriage. The title of the report is: "The Date Night Opportunity."
Bradford Wilcox & Jeffrey Dew, authors, write that "Date Night" programs are likely to
strengthen the husband wife relationship in at least five ways:
1. Communication - going on a date with one's spouse can "foster much needed
communication, mutual understanding and a sense of communion between the spouses."
2. Novelty - most couples after a few years of marriage experience a decline in the quality of
their relationship because their life becomes routine and spouses take each other for
granted. Date nights can break the monotony of daily life through activities that are new..
3. Eros - Going on a date gives the spouses and opportunity to focus their attention on the
relationship, share feelings, engage in romantic activities, and try new things. This can help
spouses rekindle the romantic spark.
4. Commitment - Spouses that are making time to go on a date regularly solidify their
commitment to each other. The one-on-one time together fosters a sense of togetherness &
signals to one another & to friends & family that they take their relationship seriously.
5. De-Stress - Stress related to work, finances, parenthood, or illness can prove corrosive to the
marital relationship because it causes spouses to become irritable with each other or
withdrawn. Going on a date can relieve some of the stress by allowing spouses to enjoy time
with one another away from the pressing concerns of day-to-day life.

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL
In the Gospel today, we find that Jesus
would rise very early before dawnand go to a
deserted place to pray and then he went out
to preach and to heal.
Please pray for the poor and suffering,
knowing that you are bringing the love
and peace of Jesus to those who live in
fear and doubt, loneliness and dread.
