Saint Lydia of Philippi
Today’s Gospel reveals what miraculous things can happen when one embraces a single-minded faith in Jesus Christ. Peter gets out of a wind-tossed boat when the Lord calls him. His faith is tested by his obedience to Jesus who is calling him out onto the water. In the midst of the waves and the wind, Peter gets out of the boat and walks toward Jesus. Good stewards heed Christ’s call to them. Sometimes that call directs them to take on seemingly impossible challenges. This week, reflect on how the Lord could be calling you out of the safety of your own “boat” to take on the impossible.
St. Helena Catholic Church is located in the northeastern corner of San Antonio. The parish was founded in 1974. From the beginning, the people of St. Helena Parish have chosen to be generous with their time, talent and treasure. They have been active and involved in all aspects of parish life. They chose the motto "People Helping People" as an apt description of the spirit of St. Helena's parishioners.
Today the parish has grown to over 3,500 families and the facilities have grown also. Hundreds of lay ministers help promote, vibrant, reverent celebrations of the Eucharist. Dozens of people assist in faith formation. Dozens more are involved in various organizations, retreats, sports and service projects. We invite you to come get in contact with Jesus Christ through His Church: "Peace be with you." (John 20:19)
