    Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Christmas

    Christmas is almost upon us. During this time, it is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season. But we can never lose sight of the transcendent reality that stands before us. “For when God was born to be man the purpose was not that the Godhead should be lost, but that, the Godhead remaining, man should be born to God” (Hilary of Poitiers). Merry Christmas!

    Remaining Christmas Novena Schedule

    Mon., Dec. 21 at 7:00pm. Tue., Dec. 22 Confessions 6:00-6:30pm. Novena at 6:30pm. Wed., Dec. 23 at 7:00pm with confessions following.

    As we prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus in our world, we cannot help but remember that the birth of each child into our world is important. Our pro-life efforts within our parish has been an important and vital part of living out our faith here at St. Joseph Parish. I want to thank Perry & Theresa Citrowske and their family who have headed up our Pro-Life Committee over many years. Now, Eric & Carrie Hahn are heading up the program. To continue our level of pro -life activities within our parish, we need an additional four to six people to assist them with Donut Sunday once a month and the Giving Tree twice a year. As the New Year approaches, a New Year’s resolution of working to continue our pro-life ef- forts might be something to consider. Think about it! If your interested in helping out in this ministry in any way, please call the parish office. I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I am grateful for the cards and gifts that people have sent or dropped off at the rectory. I hope each of our parish families have a great Christmas of sharing love, family, and time in prayer. Christmas Blessing on all of you!

    Stewardship Awareness “For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy.” Luke 1:44 “When you hear the scripture readings and Gospel reading each Sun- day, do you “leap for joy?” If not, don’t blame the lector or priest, rather look inside yourself. Do you prepare for Mass each week or do you just show up and expect to be entertained?

    Christmas Poinsettias Each year forty poinsettias are purchased to decorate the Church for Christmas. If you would like to make a donation for a poinsettia in your honor or in memory of a loved one, please send $10 in an envelope along with the name to be recognized and place it in the collection basket next weekend, mail it, or bring it to the parish office by Mon., Dec. 21. The names will be printed in the bulletin the weekend after Christmas.

    GIFT GIVING WITH SCRIP Still looking for stocking stuffers or that last minute gift? Con- sider giving a scrip card and earn a percentage for our school on each dollar spent.

Thank you for your generosity to our parish through the year! 2016 Wall Calendars Pitman Funeral Home has generously given us many 2016 wall calendars.

Guest Speaker If your New Year’s resolution is to become "spiritually fit", you won't want to miss this opportunity to hear guest speaker Denise Bossert, Catholic author of the new book The Gifts of the Visitation, on Sun., Jan. 10 following 10am Mass in the cafeteria. More details to follow. Quilting There will be no quilting on Monday evenings for the rest of December. Quilting will resume on Mon., Jan. 4.
