Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
Pre-Pilgrimage Meeting
Tuesday, Oct 14th at 7:00 PM

(If you are part of the Pilgrimage, please plan to attend this meeting.)

On Friday, October 17th, 28 members of our parish community, along with Father Tim, will embark on their ten day pilgrimage to the Holy Land. During this time, please keep them in prayer, as we know they will be praying for all of us. Please be aware there will be no Daily Mass from Friday, Oct 17th until Wednesday, Oct 30th.

 

Health & Fitness Circle

On Saturdays, starting October 18, the Health & Wellness Circle will be having an exercise class in St John&s at 8:30 am. Please come join the ladies in the Parish for some fun and fitness!

There will be a meeting October 21 at 7:00 pm in St John´s room, in the East Wing to discuss outings and possible guest speakers for our circle.


 

Wednesdays are BIG!!

Wednesday evenings have become very busy here at St Joseph Parish. Father Tim has added the Wednesday evening Mass at 6:00 pm. This gives us all an opportunity for a mid-week Celebration of Eucharist. Following Mass each week Father Tim is presenting Catholicism 101. This is a great refresher course on the basics of what makes us Catholic. These sessions will also serve as the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) for adults who are interested in becoming Catholic.

The Youth Group (Grades 6-12) are also meeting for their weekly classes following the Wednesday evening Mass. If your youth is not registered yet for youth group, it is never too late to join! Contact Christina Lewis, our new Youth Leader, in the parish office for more information.

 

Knights of Columbus Wine Experience

On Saturday evening October 18th the Knights of Columbus will be sponsoring a "Wine Experience" for all adults of the Parish. The evening will begin at 6:30 PM with various hot and cold appetizers with your choice of a red or white wine. Next, our very own wine connoisseur, Rick Gumke, will present information on seven different wines you will sampling. The evening will include dessert and a three piece band for dancing. The cost of the evening is $15 per person and tickets will go on sale next weekend.

 

Wisdomworks for Seniors

On Monday, October 20th, Sister Roberta Lamanna and Sister Rosemary Thielman will once again be here to present another Wisdomworks Workshop for the seniors of our parish. The session is entitled, "Inspiration in Our Lives." Join fellow parishioners for a morning spent in prayer, storytelling, and laughter. NOTE: If you plan to attend this workshop, please bring with you something that inspires you: a quote, a story, a poem, or a prayer. The session begins at 9:30 AM and runs until noon.

 

Community Outreach Circle Meeting

Our first meeting will be October 20 at 7:00 pm in St John´s room, in the East Wing.

The Community Outreach circle focuses on service outside of the church community. A charity would be chosen and supported for a period of several months, possibly up to one year. The members of the Circle would choose the charity, research how we could best support it, and then provide that support on a regular basis. Support could be donations of time, goods, or both. If you have any questions please contact Denise Pilgeram at 238–6940


 

St Joseph Parish Halloween Carnival

Join the parish for the annual Halloween Carnival on Saturday, October 25th following the 5:30 PM Mass, hosted by the Knights of Columbus. The Knights will have hot dogs, potato chips, soda pop, a variety of pies, and caramel apples for sale. The Women´s Guild will be hosting the Cake/Pie Walk. The Boy Scouts will be presenting their Haunted House, and the Youth Group will be hosting all the games. This is an event for the whole family. Dress everyone up in their favorite costumes and get ready to have a "scary" good time!!

NOTE: There are bins in the lobby for the collection of candy for the Halloween Carnival. Thank you for your generosity!!

 

Sacramental Preparation - Reconciliation

On Thursday, October 30th at 7:00 PM, Father Tim will meet with the second graders and their parents to begin the process of preparing for the reception of the sacrament of Reconciliation. Prep classes will continue for the following three weeks. The Celebration of First Reconciliation will take place on Thursday, December 4th at 7:00 pm. Please keep all these young ones in prayer as they prepare for this sacrament.

 

Technology Classes Coming Soon!!

Our very own Davida Condron, who has an Associate´s Degree in Information Science, will be presenting a series of computer classes for the "technologically- challenged." Beginning Thursday, Dec 4th at 1:00 PM, Davida will teach such things as: Lingo Basics, cleaning your computer, saving and sending pictures, using your I-Pad, Facebook, and using your smart phone. There is no charge for these classes. Everyone is welcome, bring your equipment and your questions! This will be a hands on class!

Ministry Sign-Up

Please prayerfully consider how your gifts might be used in this new year.

As in any community, it takes many people to ensure that all the programs and activities run smoothly. We are always in need of new people to help out with Religious Education. Duties may include teaching the little children, being a classroom helper, working with the youth group, or helping to organize activities. We always need more people to help out as Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Sacristans, and Altar Servers. We also have a serious need for more volunteers in the Coffee and Donuts Ministry. We have already had to cancel this ministry at the 11:00 Mass, and the 5:30 Mass is not far behind!! If you can help in any of these capacities, or have any questions, please call the parish office at 466-4991. We would love to hear from you!
