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? Family Pasta Night: A Huge Success!!! A big thanks to everyone who came out for our third annual Pasta Night, organized by the Knights of Columbus. Everyone had a great time and we all look forward to more celebrations like this one where we come together as a community to eat, drink and have some fun. Special thanks to the Knights for their hard work, all those who prepared and cooked the food and to our generous benefactors who donated both food and services: Maple Bakery, Primo/Unico Foods, Emma Foods, Villa Di Manno Bakery, Terrace Banquet Centre, Siderno Quality Meats, Sandro Nunziato.
