Notes from the Parish Pastoral Council

The PPC met on January 14 and discussed the Parish calendar for the next six months. Faith Formation events, bake sales, Knights of Columbus blood drives, and Parish events were all included. Remember to check the bulletin for updates and reminders!

Couple of notes…

We will be celebrating the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Eucharist with three of our Faith Formation students on March 15, so we will not be having a St. Patrick’s Day event this year.

We will honor the feast day of St. Joseph the Worker with a Novena culminating in a dinner on Friday, May 1st. If anyone is willing to help in any way with this event, please let Annie Anderson, Eddie Rush, or the Rectory know.

The 2020 Giving envelopes are located on a table by the front church entrance. Parishioners may pick them up starting the weekend of December 14th and 15th 2019

National Vocation Awareness Week will be celebrated in our country November 3-9, 2019.  Please ask Our Lord for more dedicated, holy priests, deacons and consecrated men and women.  There will be Holy Hour Adoration November 3 from 8:45 AM until 9:45 AM. Please join us!

Town Hall meeting with Bishop Libasci

The Very Reverend Bishop Peter Libasci celebrated 5:00 Mass and met with parishioners on Tuesday, October 1. He responded to questions posed by the parishioners and expressed genuine concern for our needs. The Bishop reassured the Parish will continue to flourish to meet the needs of locals and visitors alike who come to St. Joseph’s for spiritual support and community. We want to thank Bishop Libasci for his time and look forward to his support as we move forward to meet the needs of our faith community
