The Epiphany of

Dear Friends,

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all those who made the Christmas season here at Saint Robert’s so beautiful. The preparation of liturgies during the season as well as the ordering, design and placement of the beautiful decorations demanded the coordination and efforts from many, many people. Thank you, one and all, who assisted in these wonderful accomplishments!

The Lord

This year our Christmas season ends early, with the Baptism of the Lord being celebrated on Monday. That makes today’s Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord the last Sunday of this Christmas season. The refrain for our responsorial psalm set the tone for today’s scriptures: “Lord every nation on earth will adore you.” Saint Paul takes up the message: the Gentiles are co-heirs and co-partners in the promise of salvation. The prophet Isaiah proclaimed that “Nations shall walk by your light.” Did the magi come all that way just to see a little baby? No, they came to see the salvation of the whole world. This week, allow yourself to see God everywhere, and learn to show God to everyone you meet on your journey these next days.

A reminder that the Finance Council is scheduled to meet in the parish office center on Monday, January 9th at 7PM. If you are unable to attend, please contact the parish office. Many thanks! Next Saturday in the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, Archbishop Chaput will preside at a Mass to honor those men and women who have dedicated years of service to their parishes’ Religious Education Programs. Here at Saint Robert’s we are blessed once again by the dedication of all of our catechists and recognize in a special way those who are reaching milestones in their ministry: MRS. DONNA HEENEY, our DIRECTOR OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION who will be receiving the Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Award for 20 YEARS serving as a Director of Religious Education. In addition we have GLENNA BONARGO who will receive the Saint Pius X Award for 10 years of service and PAULA ETGEN, DEBBIE FELLMETH, KRISTIN FROMAL, LORI CROWLEY, and PENNY CLIFT who will receive the Saint John Neumann Award for 5 years of service to our young people. Please join me in thanking these generous members of our community and pray for them and all our young children in our religious education program. We are blessed by the good people who surround our community with loving ministry and service! I hope you have enjoyed the pictures of the GIVING TREE which have been on the TV monitor in the Welcome Center in the narthex. There is also a letter in this bulletin from Saint Cyprian Parish expressing their gratitude for your generosity. In addition to the presents, parishioners donated almost $13,000 in Gift Certificates and Tuition Assistance. WOW!! I am again deeply indebted to Sallie Theis and Rose Abecasis for organizing this annual event and to their merry helpers who come to help sort, bag and deliver the goodies in a big green and white Mastrocco Moving van! Again, we are surrounded by the blessings of generous hearts here at Saint Robert’s. May this New Year hold for all of us the blessings of peace, love and joy that only the Lord can provide. Saint Robert Bellarmine, pray for us! With prayers,

HOME AND SCHOOL NEWS:

Home and School meeting, January 19th: Mark your calendars now for this informative session! Parenting Your Child to Reach for the STARS Every parent wants to raise a successful child. To effectively meet the inevitable challenges that life brings, children must develop resiliency at home, school, and with peers. In this workshop, Dr. Mary Coakley, Child and Family Psychologist, discusses how parents can promote resilience in their children and guide them towards personal and academic success. Using the acronym STARS, Dr. Coakley shares five facets of resilience: self-control; talents and gifts; healthy attachments; rejection of negativity; and spir ituality. Parents will leave this presentation with new tools and ideas that can be implemented immediately. THANK YOU! : Thank you to our families for their generosity in responding to our Mission Collection! We were able to send $1225 to the Early Childhood Association to support their work with the poor. Your generosity, as always, was overwhelming!

THE EPIPHANY OF OUR LORD Isaiah 60:1-6; Ephesians 3:2-3a,5-6; Matthew 2:1-12 The Manifestation of Our God The Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord embodies a rich liturgical tradition, originating in the earliest Christian centuries. In the Eastern Churches, this day occupies an even greater prominence than Christmas. Rome has assimilated it into the Christmas season where too often the faithful understand it to be only a commemoration of the visit of the Magi to the newborn Christ. The account of the Magi is indeed a rich and beautiful story that shows well the virtues—and perils—of seeking Christ. However, this Solemnity reveals so much more to us! Taken together, the Gospel accounts of the Magi, the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan, and his first sign (or miracle) at the wedding feast at Cana, draw our attention to the depth of God’s profound saving love for us in Christ, a love which extends to the ends of the Earth! At we enter the new year, what gift do you bring to the Lord? How will this gift bring others closer to Jesus? Almighty Father, you revealed Jesus as the light of the nations, the eternal Word made flesh. Bathe us in his light and draw us beyond our human limits into the completeness of your life.

Dear Msgr. Beisel,

Thank you so much to you and your parishioners for the beautiful Christmas gifts for our families in need. The people were touched by the kindness shared with them! So often, your parishioners have been so generous to the people who live in the Cobbs Creek Community. Believe me when I say that the smiles of the people were broad, some even brought to tears. It is through Sallie and her team of elves who offer so much to gather your church to keep the goodness of the Lord present in our area. So much is done by so many good people that I am overwhelmed by such love and patience. Best wishes for a blessed Christmas and peaceful New Year. Know that the Church of St. Robert Bellarmine is prayerfully remembered! God bless you! Sister Mary Catherine, IHM ~ Director of St. Cyprian Parish Services

St. Joseph/St. Robert School Service Corps students recently organized various events to support local organizations or families in our community. First Picture: Students delivered plants and cards of sympathy to members of St. Joseph & St. Robert Parishes who lost a loved one this past year. Second Picture: “Cupcakes for a Cancer Cure” raised $275.00 to support families that have a loved one receiving cancer treatment.
