This week’s bulletin


Next week’s Gospel (John 21:1-19)

At that time, Jesus revealed himself again to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberias.
He revealed himself in this way.
Together were Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus,
Nathanael from Cana in Galilee,
Zebedee’s sons, and two others of his disciples.
Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.”
They said to him, “We also will come with you.”
So they went out and got into the boat,
but that night they caught nothing.
When it was already dawn, Jesus was standing on the shore;
but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
Jesus said to them, “Children, have you caught anything to eat?”
They answered him, “No.”
So he said to them, “Cast the net over the right side of the boat
and you will find something.”
So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in
because of the number of fish.
So the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord.”
When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord,
he tucked in his garment, for he was lightly clad,
and jumped into the sea.
The other disciples came in the boat,
for they were not far from shore, only about a hundred yards,
dragging the net with the fish.
When they climbed out on shore,
they saw a charcoal fire with fish on it and bread.
Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you just caught.”
So Simon Peter went over and dragged the net ashore
full of one hundred fifty-three large fish.
Even though there were so many, the net was not torn.
Jesus said to them, “Come, have breakfast.”
And none of the disciples dared to ask him, “Who are you?”
because they realized it was the Lord.
Jesus came over and took the bread and gave it to them,
and in like manner the fish.
This was now the third time Jesus was revealed to his disciples
after being raised from the dead.

When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”
He then said to Simon Peter a second time,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Tend my sheep.”
Jesus said to him the third time,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was distressed that Jesus had said to him a third time,
“Do you love me?” and he said to him,
“Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.
Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger,
you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted;
but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands,
and someone else will dress you
and lead you where you do not want to go.”
He said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God.
And when he had said this, he said to him, “Follow me.”


St. Valentine’s Dinner

Gentlemen, you’re in for a treat. The ladies have been planning a St. Valentine’s dinner for us. (We trade of each year for hosting duties). Word on the street says it will be exceptional. Try to dress up a bit: slacks, button up, maybe a sport coat. No date necessary at all.

Ladies: your help is requested. Find a peer minister or email Bria (bria-phipps@utulsa.edu) to find out how you can help.

Lastly, we’ll be watching Chris O’Hare in the Wanamaker Mile at 8:50p live on ESPN3.

RSVP to the Facebook event

Join a Women’s or Men’s Group

So here’s the scoop. This thing called life is quite challenging and call really leave us feeling empty and hopeless when we’re caught up in concerns of worldly importance and self. Alas, the beauty is found when we turn our lives outward and start living for God and others. The invitation: join a women’s or men’s group this semester and make genuine friends who will walk beside you in this journey.

Ladies, the St. Therese Women’s Groups will continue weekly meetings, tea times, and other great opportunities to grow closer to God and make great friends at the same time. Already in a group? Stay tuned for this semester’s times and locations. Interested in joining a group? Find Elizabeth “Awesome” Beam after Mass, or email elizabeth-beam [at] utulsa.edu.


Gents,  if you’re looking for a way to grow as a man of God, consider joining a group. It’s always easier to do the right thing when you have friends who are walking the same path. This semester we’ll continue our book and Bible study, plus have some fun events here and there, maybe Bacon and Rockets or another night at the Boiler Room. Interested in joining a group? Find Adam Bremerkamp after Mass, or email adam-bremerkamp [at] utulsa.edu.
