Message From The Pastor

Fr. Michael HermesDear friends,

Hope you are doing well managing the weather as we experience 60 degrees one day and a Winter Ice Storm the next!

January in the Catholic Church brings us some opportunities to reflect on some important aspects of our faith.

For nearly a half century, the Catholic Church in the United States has celebrated National Migration Week (Jan. 8-14), which is an opportunity for the Church to reflect on the circumstances confronting migrants, including immigrants, refugees, children, and victims and survivors of human trafficking. The theme for National Migration Week 2017 draws attention to Pope Francis' call to create a culture of encounter, and in doing so to look beyond our own needs and wants to those of others around us.

January 18-25 is Christian Unity Week. The theme of this year's Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is "Reconciliation-The Love of Christ Compels Us." (2 Cor 5:14-20). This year’s celebration is important in the context of the Reformation Anniversary. Many of us in our own families have relatives who belong to another Christian church. We believe that, “through faith you are all children of God in Christ Jesus (Gal. 3:26). We see this week as an opportunity to take steps toward reconciliation.

Monday, January 23rd, is the official Day of Prayer for the legal protection of unborn children. Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception (Catechism of the Catholic Church #2270). “Before you were born I consecrated you” (Jer. 1:5). Let’s reflect on what we believe about the sanctity of human life and how we can share that message with our family, friends and society.

Finally, we celebrate the Conversion of St. Paul on Wednesday, January 25th. St. Paul’s entire life can be explained in terms of one experience—his encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. After that St. Paul spent the rest of his life at the service of the Gospel, working tirelessly to spread the faith in Christ Jesus. We continue to do our best to imitate him in the work of evangelization.

January is an excellent time to be living our Catholic-Christian faith at St. Paul Parish in Olathe!

God bless you.

Fr. Michael Hermes
Pastor – St. Paul
