Did you know…
…that the house of St. Peter (aka Simon) is traditionally
known as the headquarters of Jesus’ ministry?
When you visit Capernaum, the tour guide will tell
you that Jesus spent a lot of time in Capernaum, and
the people there have said that whenever Jesus was
in town, he lived in Peter’s home. Jesus did not own
any home of his own, so it makes sense that he was
able to stay in the home of one of his disciples.
St. Peter was married, may have had children, and
had his mother-in-law living with them. After Jesus
and a few of his disciples had gone to the Synagogue
to worship God, they came home to find Peter’s
mother-in-law sick with a fever. When Jesus took
hold of her hand, she was immediately cured, and “served
them”. That means she cooked them something to eat!
Parents—be sure that you have put all of your
child’s grade level events on your 2018 calendar!
The children and at least on parent are expected to
participate in the Café Julia and Family Gathering
moments! Children preparing to receive the Sacraments
MUST attend the workshops!
