Kicking off the Faith and Food series for this semester, we’ve got TImothy Putnam, the Director of Family Life for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tulsa. Timothy is a convert to Catholicism, really good at music and graphic design, and he’s a great family man.
Timothy will be joining us for a talk on raising a Catholic family in today’s world, walking a daily life with Christ, and respecting the dignity of life from conception to natural death. The food lineup is TBA, but it will be free and yummy. Invite friends, for real.

Update: Timothy could not make it last minute (his wife was having a baby!) but Blake Lawson and Mary Hogan graciously came last minute to share their personal testimonies. You can listen to the audio anytime at:
Sunday Mass resumes today: Mass at 8p, Confessions 6:45-7:45p. This Sunday we celebrate the Baptism of the Lord. Why did Jesus need to be baptized, you ask? Check out this week’s Are You a BA? section of the bulletin for a rock-solid answer: Bulletin-2013-01-13.pdf.
Finally, we leave you with the Gospel passage for next Sunday:
There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there.
Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding.
When the wine ran short,
the mother of Jesus said to him,
“They have no wine.”
And Jesus said to her,
“Woman, how does your concern affect me?
My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servers,
“Do whatever he tells you.”
Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings,
each holding twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus told the them,
“Fill the jars with water.”
So they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them,
“Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.”
So they took it.
And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine,
without knowing where it came from
— although the servers who had drawn the water knew —,
the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him,
“Everyone serves good wine first,
and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one;
but you have kept the good wine until now.”
Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee
and so revealed his glory,
and his disciples began to believe in him.
