The Gospel for the 16th SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST (Lk 5:1-11)

Jesus Calls His First Disciples

            

One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people

from the boat.

 

When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” 

 

When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.

 

When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners.

 

Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.

 

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

O God, great in might and inscrutable in wisdom, marvelous in counsel above the sons of men, Father of all perfect gifts: You the same Lord, enlighten with Your Holy Spirit the hearts of young people and call them to follow your only Begotten Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ,

the Good Shepherd!

Give them the courage and generosity necessary

to overcome all obstacles to their vocation,

for you complete what is lacking! 

Give to the parents that faith, love and spirit of sacrifice which will inspire them to offer their children to Your

service and rejoice whenever one of their children is called

to follow Christ in a special way of priesthood

or religious consecration.

We implore you through the intercession of the Most Pure Theotokos and ever Virgin Mary! Amen!

GCU Lodge 860 Reunion Dinner

 On September 10th, the Eparchy of Parma kicked off the Stewardship Appeal for 2022-23.  This year’s Appeal continues to focus on support for our four greatest needs in the Eparchy: the Development of Parishes; Vocations and Seminarian Education; Works of the Apostolate; and Supporting Retired Priests.  Please keep an eye out for your Stewardship form in the mail, and consider making a sacrificial gift to this year’s Appeal that reflects the importance of the Church in your life and in the lives of those close to you. The Eparchy needs your support. Your gift will make a positive difference.  Thank you in advance for your generosity in support of this year’s Stewardship Appeal!

 

 

On July 1st, Fr. Mykhailo Solianyk became the new Administrator at St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church  Fr. Mykhailo moved here from the Cleveland area, where he served as parochial vicar of the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God.  He has arrived at our parish with his wife, Zita, and his five children:  Sofia, Andrij, Mykhailo, Anastasia, and Zita Maria. Needless to say, this is a big transition for him and his family, so please do your best to be as supportive and patient as you can, as we welcome them to our parish.

District 11 is honored to again offer two scholarship awards, each in the amount of $500.00 (five hundred dollars) to two college students.

In the beginning

God created heaven and earth.

Now the earth was a formless void, there was darkness over the deep, with a divine wind sweeping over the waters.

God said, 'Let there be light,'

and there was light.

God saw that light was good, and God divided light from darkness.

God called light 'day',

and darkness he called 'night'.

Evening came and

morning came: the first day.

Genesis 1: 1 - 5
