Your tag is in the bulletin this weekend. Please hang your tag on the tree and lay the blankets neatly on the marble steps.

 

55+NEWSLETTER should be in process this week.  If you have any news or suggestions, please contact Nancy Plescia, 474-5154.

 

ADULT SUNDAY MORNINGS will be back in session when PSR begins.  This is a group of adults who meet on Sunday mornings to discuss the scripture readings for the current Sunday by using a pamphlet called Sunday to Sunday.  The camaraderie and input of other adults makes this a joyful and insightful time. 

 

CLEANING HOUSE, rather rectory.  Welcome to Kaylene Corcoran.  She has been working hard cleaning up after Fr. Ted.  Kaylene has been at the job for three weeks now and doing great. I hope I don’t overwork her!

 

Thanks to all, who have been feeding the pastor!  I’ve been having some really wonderful feasts, at the rectory, at restaurants, and at parishioner’s homes.  You have been very kind and generous and it is very much appreciated!

 

Stewardship, committee had a meeting this past Sunday.  I left with a really good feeling on what was discussed…”Dinner and a movie” after-action report; trip to the Shrine; Adoration; and other issues (I had to leave before the meeting ended).  Some important points were brought up that we (and I) will be addressing in the future.  Others were for discussion and will be taken up at a later date.  The Stewardship Committee supports our church – we need to support them.

 

IT IS TIME TO THINK MUSIC!

Our choirs will be forming soon. Thursday, September 22 will be the first practice. Junior Choir meets at 4:30 – 5:15 p.m. in the choir loft. We will not have the practice after 8:00 Mass this year therefore Thursday Practice is VERY important. Children from Kindergarten thru grade 8 are welcome.

Adult Choir meets at 7:00 p.m. We welcome all our adults and children in 7th grade or higher. Again practice is VERY important; we want to sound our best. We have lost a few members so we need voices, especially men. JOIN US and give us a try!

 

PRAY THE ROSARY: We continue to pray the Scriptural Rosary on Tuesday evenings at the home of Frank and Nancy Plescia, 1826 Pacer Court. .  We start at 7:00 and have usually completed our prayer at 7:30.  Come when you can to pray for our parish and all our personal needs.  For directions or questions, call the Plescia's at 474-5154.

 

COMMUNITY KITCHEN: August has a fifth Monday, and so St. Joseph Parish will be responsible for providing supper on August 29 for the community.  We usually begin preparation at 3:00 and are finished by 6:00.  If you can help for all or part of that time, please call Alice Dennis, 474-8213.  Some desserts will also be needed.  People come to these dinners for food and fellowship and are most grateful!

 

Roman Missal, Fr. Ted has ordered the program from Mystical Body, Mystical Voice (the same program that the priests received at their convocation).  It consists of DVD’s and participants booklets.  Due to the length of the program, we will be offering it in two parts starting in September.  Our first group will be the various committees of the parish.  Later we will invite any interested parties and go through it again. Booklets comparing the “old” and “new” translations next to each other will be available also in the near future.  This is an exciting, historic time in our Church.          

 

ANNIVERSARY UPDATE:  Because of your generous support of our cookbook sale and History Book listings, a donation of over $1900 has been deposited in the Diocesan Fund toward the restoration of our church building!  ALSO, we do have about a dozen cookbooks left.  If you would like to make a purchase, please contact Mary Lundberg, 474-6862.  The books are just $8.00. 

 

Our Parish…Our Future

 

Please keep our Capital Campaign

in your daily prayers.

REMEMBER TO PRAY the PRAYER TO

Saint Joseph, with your family, for the success of the “Project Forward” Capital Campaign

 

CAMPAIGN  UPDATE

THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO HAVE PAID OFF THEIR PLEDGES.

The building is coming along very nicely. You are welcome to take a look during the day, just be careful of the workers and cords on the floor.

We have had expenses of course and we have a building to show for it.

When the next expense report comes in we will print information.

pumpkin show float – We would like to have a float in October. We still need the following: a person available and willing to be the driver to pull the float, see that it is in the parade line up when needed and back to the fair ground for storage after the parades; a truck to tow the float; a committee & chairman to plan and create the float. If you fill any of these needs call the church office. We need to get started soon as the design from last year needs dismantled. The paper and trim from last year should be good for this year as it was new last year.
