By doing this, Andrew evangelized. As Catholics, we are all called to evangelize. One way we can do this is to retell the story of Jesus. As a class, choose a favorite story of Jesus to retell. Rewrite it together. Then have the children illustrate it and share their words and drawings with the parish-school community.●  January 17: Saint Berard and Companions – Saint Berard and his brother Franciscans were killed when they refused to stop preaching the Gospel in Morocco. Their lives inspired many others to become missionaries, including Saint Anthony of Padua. Pray for the safety and strength of those who serve as missionaries and relief workers around the world.●  January 20: Saint Fabian – He was not in the running to become pope; however, when a dove landed on Saint Fabian’s head, people regarded it as a sign from the Holy Spirit and elected him unanimously! His papacy spanned 14 years until his martyrdom in A.D. 250.Unit 2: We Celebrate Jesus’ Coming ● TG2-33
