HONORING ST. JOSEPH
On Father’s Day weekend, please join us in offering a spiritual bouquet to St. Joseph.
Before each Mass, parishioners will be invited to write down their prayer intentions and offer them to St. Joseph for his fatherly care and intercession. There will be a table set up in the narthex, where you will be able to obtain your card and write down your special intention. Those offering a spiritual bouquet to St. Joseph, are asked to join Father during the opening procession and place their card in the basket placed at St. Joseph’s feet.
As we celebrate the gift of fathers and honor St. Joseph, we also recognize that Father’s Day can be a difficult holiday for many. We hope this spiritual bouquet provides an opportunity to pray for the intentions brought to your heart by the occasion.

Our parish’s new ministry, the “CARING CRAFTERS,” has amazing crafters willing to share their talents in creating handmade items, but they are in need of the materials to perform these tasks.
If you have any fabric, thread, yarn, etc. that you no longer have a use for, would you please consider donating them to this ministry. If you don’t have these items but would like to contribute gift cards from Hobby Lobby, Jo Anns or Michaels for us to purchase specific materials not donated, it would be greatly appreciated. You can drop off your donation at the church any time during normal business hours. Thank you for your generosity.
Our ministry hand makes items to comfort and support the needs of our church and local community. We are currently making prayer shawls for the bereavement ministry and lap blankets for the homebound. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month from 10:00 am–12:00 pm at the church. The next meeting is Wednesday, June 14th. Everyone is welcome.

THE SIGN OF THE CROSS is who we are as followers of Christ. Sometimes when something is repeated over and over and over again, it loses its meaning. Such could be the case with the Sign of the Cross. For us as Catholic Christians, it should be a reverent prayer, one to be reflected upon as we make the sign and say the most holy words: “In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen”… (which means, “I Believe.”)
