A response to God's grace!
This Theme is to be lived in all the three areas of our life as Catholics such as: Time, Talents, and Treasure to God and the church community. There are two major areas of focus, our involvement in the church community and our giving to the church community as good stewards. This is designed for a longer period with the intention of making our parish truly a living, loving, and vibrant community of God’s people. This is a need of the time for our parish, and it is the work of the Holy Spirit to make us Catholics who live our faith in a passionate way in our daily lives. I encourage every one in the parish to be involved in this renewal program.
There will be an information session on Wednesday the 29th at 6:45 pm in the Parish Life Center. This is an open meeting for anyone who is interested, especially for the members of the finance board, parish council, school board, and heads of various ministries in the parish.
Our involvements in the church community...

Sunday November 2nd will begin our 6th season of hosting Room in the Inn here at St. Joseph's. The sign up sheets will be out in the narthex after Mass this weekend. Many thanks and blessings to our faithful parishioners for supporting this ministry! If you have not volunteered in the past, please stop at the table and see where you can help out. Our greatest need is Innkeepers to stay with the men on Sunday night. We have struggled in the past to have 2 men every Sunday, so I would ask the men of St Joseph to pray about how you can help. Even if you can just do one night!
