The month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This is primarily due to the fact that the liturgical feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated annually on October 7. It was instituted to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in gratitude for the protection that she gives the Church in answer to the praying of the Rosary by the faithful.
Join St. Joseph Church for 10 Days of the Rosary beginning Wednesayday, October 21st through Friday, October 30th. During the week the service will begin at 6:00 PM with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament followed by the Rosary, Benediction. On Saturday and Sunday we will begin with Mass at 4:30 PM and 8:30 AM followed by Exposition, Rosary and then Benediction. This is meant for the entire parish community as we celebrate the “Year of Faith” and “Year of Renewal”. Please make a special effort to attend.
For those leading the Rosary click the schedule or contact church office 615-865-1071.
In keeping with the Spirit of Advent and in preparation for the celebration of Christmas, the Sunday Scripture sessions will be devoted to The Infancy Narratives found in the first two chapters of St. Matthew’s Gospel and the first two chapters of St. Luke’s Gospel.
Both the theme and the short length of this study (4 sessions) make it ideal for Advent study. It focuses on the opening chapters of Matthew and Luke, the only gospels which describe the wondrous events surrounding the birth of the Messiah. This study also explores the many significant connections these two gospels make between the Old Testament and the birth of the Savior. Rich insights will be made as these two gospels are opened to reveal the special contribution each makes to our understanding of Jesus' nativity. Deepen your longing for the Messiah's coming again and ask God to be Emmanuel, 'God with us.'
