New CD! Pure Fatherhood

New CD of the Week: Fathers are the link between heaven and earth, and are intended to be an image of our Heavenly Father. Drawing on the examples of St. Joseph, Devin Schadt shows us how to become a father on earth like the Father in heaven. Devin is a husband, a father of five, and the co-founder of the Fathers of St. Joseph, an apostolate dedicated to the renewal of authentic fatherhood. Please stop by the social room to pick up a copy.

Prayer for Peace

Bishop DiLorenzo, in the light of the violence in Minnesota, Louisiana, and Texas is asking all the faithful to "turn our hearts and minds to Jesus Christ for strength, compassion and mercy." And he suggested we use the excellent, 800-year-old prayer of St. Francis.


A Holy Hour of Reparation

The shock of the Massacre in Orlando this week causes confusion, and CNN et al., make it worse. Forget about the temporal appearance of things, and spiritual reality is more important, and more straightforward: this horrific crime was a desecration of what God loves--His creation made in His image--and a consecration to Satan, the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning.


Congratulations to Matt Bean!

Matt Bean, a parishioner of St. Joseph's, and son of Megan and Pat, was ordained a deacon on June 4th for the Diocese of Charlotte, NC. Here he is with Bishop Jurgis and his 3 confreres.

Jubilee of Mercy

Extraordinary Holy Year - Jubilee of Mercy - Dec. 8, 2015 to Nov. 20, 2016 

Pope Francis has called this Holy Year in the hope that "the witness of believers might grow stronger and more effective." 

I encourage you to read his excellent discussion of this Jubilee called "Misericordiae Vultus".  Link here: 

We will be celebrating this Jubilee in various ways.  Please stay tuned for more. 

The Marriage Course

Imagine a date night, 7 weeks in a row! In a private and romantic atmosphere, this course teaches cou-ples about the natural virtues which are proper to the spousal relationship. These natural virtues are vital for every family. In addition, these virtues are the indispensible foundation for the supernatural virtues. These virtues are explained in simple and practical terms in well-executed talks, then brought home to each marriage with focused exercises each one completes with their spouse alone. There is neither group exercises nor public sharing of any kind.


Additional Mass Time on Sundays

We are pleased to announce an additional Mass on Sundays for your convenience and edification.  We are hoping an afternoon Mass at 4:30 pm will enable greater Mass participation on days when morning attendance is difficult.  The main Mass of the day remains the High Mass at 11 am. The early Mass remains at 8:30 am.
