Dear Friends, Thank you for your attentiveness last weekend for the exploration of financial stewardship. This weekend I ask you to make your 2014 Financial Stewardship pledge by bringing your completed commitment form to Mass. If you are not with us this weekend, January 25th-26th, then please get it to the parish office. We have four ways in which you can practice financial stewardship: weekly envelopes/ electronic funds transfer/ automatic bank draft/ and, beginning February 1st, on line giving. As I concluded my words with you I asked if you would consider these questions: Can I increase my financial church support? Can I be more faithful in my consistency in giving? Can I begin financial church support? If I have stopped giving church support to place my support with the capital campaign, can I reevaluate that decision and include church support in my giving? Thank you. St Jean Vianney Catholic School will hold its annual OPEN HOUSE on January 30th, 10:00am-1:00pm in the Library and on campus. We have the opportunity to present Catholic School Education on our campus. If you would like your child to receive the benefits of this ministry, COME TO OPEN HOUSE! The Family Life Commission is sponsoring the Dad’s and Daughter’s Valentine Dance in Fr. Engels Hall on Saturday, February 15th. Information about the dance will be available this weekend. I will join other catechists in presenting Catholic Sexual Moral Education on Saturday, February 8th to parents and students of the 5th grade level for both the Elementary School and Religious Education. The focus of this morning is presenting Catholic Faith perspectives within sexual moral education. This weekend we have celebrated First Reconciliation with our candidates and families. Later in May we will celebrate First Eucharist with them. I hope your week is going well. Please pray for one another and the parish. Love,

 To family of Belinda Smith on the death of her

grandmother, Odette Labit.

Structure and Boundaries: Critical Strategies for Raising Healthy Children in the 21st Century Wednesday, January 29th at 7:00 pm Fr. Engels Hall In the modern world of major technological advances, instantaneous communications, and daily activities and demands pulling at our children, raising emotionally, mentally and behaviorally healthy children can be a challenge for most if not all families. How can families maintain a healthy balance of structure and boundaries in a fast-food culture while helping their children to develop secure self identities from infancy through adolescence? On January 29th Rusty Miller, LCSW -BACS will explore with parents how structure and boundaries throughout a child's developmental phases are more critical now than ever before in helping them grow into healthy young adults. Rusty is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Board Approved Clinical Supervisor with 20 years of experience assisting families in the Louisiana behavioral health system. He is currently working in the Louisiana managed care system for public behavioral health and has a private practice where he serves couples and families and also specializes in assisting adults with unwanted same sex attractions and provides education and guidance to adolescents and parents who may be facing unwanted same sex attractions.

Church Environment Committee: Responsible for the seasonal liturgical environments in Church. [six times a year at specific dates and times in Church.]

50th Anniversary of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy Liturgy as an Art and a Craft In his post-Synodal Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis. . . , Pope Benedict XVI spoke about "the art of proper celebration" of the Liturgy, or ars celebrandi (SacCar, no. 38). He stated: In the course of the Synod, there was frequent insistence on the need to avoid any antithesis between the ars celebrandi, the art of proper celebration, and the full, active and fruitful participation of all the faithful. The primary way to foster the participation of the People of God in the sacred rite is the proper celebration of the rite itself. The ars celebrandi is the best way to ensure their actuosa participatio. The ars celebrandi is the fruit of faithful adherence to the liturgical norms in all their richness; indeed, for two thousand years this way of celebrating has sustained the faith life of all believers, called to take part in the celebration as the People of God, a royal priesthood, a holy nation (cf. 1 Pet 2:4-5, 9). He then went on to treat three themes that we want to underscore. Responsibility of Bishops, Priests and Deacons (SacCar, no.40) In this paragraph Pope Benedict XVI clearly enunciated the collective "responsibility" of the ordained in the art of celebration. We take these words to heart and invite all the clergy to do so. At our ordination as deacons, we first received the Book of the Gospels, being told to "believe what you read, teach what you believe, and practice what you teach." This is a challenge for all to serve with integrity as we proclaim and preach the Word. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) reminds us also that we must celebrate the Liturgy with great care: "Therefore, when he celebrates the Eucharist, [the Priest] must serve God and his people with dignity and humility, and by his bearing and by the way he pronounces the divine words he must convey to the faithful the living presence of Christ" (GIRM, no. 93). We do well to keep Pope Benedict XVI's introductory comments in mind, namely that the whole People of God participates in the Liturgy. We are stewards of the Liturgy and servants of the People of God. The terms "minister" and "ministry" should always have

special resonance for those who are ordained to serve the Body of Christ.

St. Jean Vianney Social Responsibility News Elizabeth Ministry Rosebuds Return The Elizabeth Ministry Rosebud Program will return to Mary’s Chapel on January 4th and remain until the end of the month.
