UPCOMING AT OUR PARISH
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
This Year has been unique for all of us, to say the least. As we have sheltered in place, remained socially distant, and slowly ventured back into the everyday world, I have found that one thing has remained constant: the faith of our families at St. Joseph Catholic Church.
The last six months have been challenging for our parish, but as we begin to worship again in person I find it exciting to be able to grow our parish - build our parish - through stewardship.
Stewardship is usually defined as gifts of time, talent, and treasure, but I also describe it as using your gifts received from God to make your family, your community, and your church a better place. I invite you to truly be a part of St. Joseph Church by filling out your stewardship pledge for the coming year to help us grow stronger. By completing and returning your commitment card, you are making a pledge to support St. Joseph Church now and in the coming year so that we can strengthen the faith lives of our families, the community in which we live, and the church we call home.
You will hear me and Fr. Kevin talk about the importance of stewardship (in all forms) and how we want 100% participation from our families. Please take the time to prayerfully consider how you can use the gifts you have received in order to serve others.
In Christ through Mary Immaculate,
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
We, the members of St. Joseph Catholic Church, are called to a living faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ. As a community of disciples, we worship God and reflect upon His love, goodness, and teachings. We promote and deepen our Catholic faith through the proclamation of the Gospel, lifelong Catholic education, and participation in the Sacraments. We serve God through stewardship of our parish, our Catholic school, and outreach to those in need, helping to build the kingdom of God. All these works are accomplished through our union with the
Holy Father and our Bishop, while relying on the intercession of our patron, St. Joseph.
