                            The sacrament of Baptism is “… the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in
                            the Spirit…” The nature of this retreat is to give participants an understanding of this sacra-
                            ment … an understanding that can live on throughout your spiritual journey as well as your
                            family. Fr. John will help participants to understand more fully the incredible gifts which
                            Christ gives to His Church.

                         Catechism of the Catholic Church


                      Thank you to all those who participated in the study of the past year’s Catechism of the
                      Catholic Church.


                      Enrollment for the 2010-2011 session is currently open. If you are interested in studying
                      the Catechism of the Catholic Church after the Tuesday 9:45 AM Mass, please email Jerry
                      Turkowski at aff@sjdrparish.org. The weekly study will meet for one hour. There is no
                      homework, and there is no charge. It’s a great way to informally learn about the doctrine
                      and traditions of our Catholic Church.




                                            The Spring 2010 CRHP Weekends will be held on March 20-21
Christ Renews His Parish                    (Women’s Weekend) and April 24-25 (Men’s Weekend). You can find
                                            additional information or register online at the parish website.




                                          The first month of the new year is almost over. Have you made your
                                          commitment to learn more about the Catholic faith, to attend a Christ
                                          Renews His Parish Weekend, to join a Bible Study/Catechism Study
        Call to Action                    or to become involved in a parish ministry? Or even better … to grow
                                          closer in your relationship with God by listening to His Call?
                                               Good Steward of the Month

This month we want to recognize a group of men that willingly give of their time, talent and treasure in installing a new
roof for a handicapped member of our parish. They worked many hours sometimes in inclement weather making the
necessary repairs that were needed. They truly live the Christmas spirit.

Join me in saluting Jim Stuebgen, Don Reilly, Tom Stanko, Lynn Nellenbach and John McGraw who provided the scaf-
folding free of charge as JANUARY’S STEWARDS of the MONTH.
