Easter Rubric   A reminder that in the season of Easter we stand during the Canon and genuflect or bow where indicated. If you are unable to stand, remain seated. Standing during the Canon is an ancient symbol of Jesus rising from the dead.

Coffee, Juice, Donuts (and Ice Cream)!    We gathered on Sunday in honor of the last Bishop Joseph Zawistowski as he was born 100 years ago! He was our longest serving Pastor (24 years!) In case you are wondering “why ice cream?” It was his favorite dessert.  We thank everyone who joined in to visit and share a great time!

Attendance Goal - 45!   We made our goal last Sunday! Can we do it again? Remember to invite those you know to worship with us, especially if they are looking for a church!

Hall Maintenance   Our St. Joseph Men’s Club will gather this Saturday, April 21 at 9am for several maintenance items on the hall interior and exterior, including wall prep and painting in the lower hall, and filling gaps and cracks outside.
All are invited to help with these numerous tasks!

Bible Basics   The next Bible Basics class will be on Sunday, April 29 at 11am. This class is perfect for beginners!

Visitor Cards   We have placed visitor cards (and pens) in the pews. If you are visiting and would like more information about our church, or if there is anything you need, please fill out a card and place it in the basket, or give to Father Charles or an usher. Welcome!
