What’s Happening @ St. Joseph’s!

Anniversary of Ordination – June 11

Pray for our Priests

How blessed are we as a parish to have two wonderful priests serving the needs of our community, especially in this time of a pandemic. We are incredibly grateful for all of their work helping to get us through this pandemic with the ability to receive our Lord and Savior in Holy, Sacramental Communion. What better way to show our appreciation then to thank them with the gift of prayer. Fr Rico has asked all to consider praying for both he and Fr. Bill with a Novena leading up their anniversary dates. Start right away for Fr. Bill and start on June 3rd for Fr. Rico. The Novena can be found here.

For those who are able, there is a poster in the foyer for Fr. Rico that can be signed by all parishioners and families.

Anniversary of Ordination – June 7

Knights of Columbus Bottle Drive

The Knights of Columbus hope you have been enjoying Veranda Beach and Patio Backyardo during this beautiful weather! If you have been enjoying a few cold beverages -including from the previous wine fundraiser- then they would love if you would drop off your empty liquor, wine and beer bottles as well as cans. The past bottle drives have been incredibly successful and they hope you will once again support their charitable endeavors.

June 18-19. Friday from 4-8 pm and Saturday from 9am -4pm in the Church parking lot. Thank you in advance! COVID protocols for drive-thru will be in effect.

JOIN US as we study the Word of God!

Alpha

This is an incredible opportunity to learn more about your faith, a refresher for those who have been away from their faith or for those who are just looking to explore in a small group setting of friendly people

If you are interested in joining we ask that you please contact the parish office to register or click here. When you register, we will reach out to you closer to the date with the Zoom link so that we can connect while keeping safe.

We encourage you all to join us – and bring a friend – as we explore life, faith and Jesus together.

If you are between the age of 13-19 and are looking for Alpha Youth, head over to the Youth Ministry page and our next session of Alpha will begin in September.

Interested in becoming catholic or learning more about your faith?

R.C.I.A

The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program begins in September and runs through the Easter season.  It is geared to those who would like to enter the Catholic Church and receive the Sacraments of God.  If you know of someone who might be interested – invite them to come.  This is also a great opportunity for those who have been Catholics their whole lives but would like an in-depth teaching as to WHY we believe what we believe not just what we believe.  All parishioners are asked to prayerfully consider joining the RCIA program to help deepen their faith in the Lord Jesus.  To register – kindly call the parish office or speak to Fr. Rico directly and for more information check out our “Becoming Catholic” page here
