The Parish Pastoral Council is excited to partner with LifeTouch Photography Services, in creating a Parish Photo Book Directory. When completed, every home will be given a free copy. The photo directory will feature us (the parishioners of St. Joseph Church), families, parish life, various events and groups that make up the parish. It will be the “who’s who” book of the year; it will be spectacular! However, you must do your part; by signing up for a timeslot to have your photo taken here in the church hall. The professional photographers will be available only 2 days, Wednesday & Thursday, August 22nd & 23rd . Sign-ups to schedule times will be made available after weekend Masses. It is free. You will receive a free photo for framing along with the completed book. If you so choose, you may purchase other size photos of your liking. Please spread the word, so that, all parishioners may be counted among the parish family directory!
A big “thank you” to Etienne Poirier for securing the new statue of the Blessed Mother inside the grotto, located in the front lawn of the Rectory/Office. (Please see photo).
A big “thank you” to Stewart and Annie Anderson for creating our Parish Capital Campaign Mountain, located near the poor box in the church. It is awesome! (Please see photo). The little boots trekking up the hiking trail show our progress in the Capital Campaign, as we reach toward our goal, the summit of the mountain. So far, we are half way up the mountain with pledges. Thank you to everyone who made a pledge to support the longevity of our parish. If you haven’t done so, please fill out a pledge card located in the pews.
We received a nice “thank you” card from the local Food Pantry for our generous donation we gave from our 2nd collection a few weeks ago. It was very appreciated and needed to fill their shelves.
It was such a blessing to have the Monstrance blessed by Pope Saint John Paul II here last week. Many people stopped in the church on Wednesday Adoration to make a visit. (please see photo).
May God continue to bless us and our parish community here in the White Mountains!
