WELCOME TO ST. DAVID’S PARISH
January 25th, 2015
3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time – B Reflection
From the earliest of times God has invited all to a
personal relationship with Him. In today’s Gospel,
Jesus called four fishermen as His first followers.
They give up everything and follow Him. “I will
make you fishers of men” He promises. They
make following Him their first priority in life. Jesus
calls us every day to follow Him. How do we
respond? Are we willing to give up all for him?

drink and have some fun. Special thanks to the
Knights for their hard work, all those who prepared
