Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Evangelization
The Gospel today is certainly appropriate for our reflections on evangelization. The wise men journey from the East to pay homage to the King of the World. They then return to their homeland. Evangelization follows a similar process. We must give our Lord homage and worship and journey to see Him and know Him better. Only then, after we have spent time in prayer and worship, can we share the fruits of our prayer with others. Evangelization is sharing our experience of Jesus Christ with others and guiding them into relationship of joy with Him as well. Consider how often you share the Good News of Christ with others in simple ways and in more bold ways. Would there be enough evidence in your home that you are Catholic and follow Jesus Christ?
St. Joseph Parish Mission Statement In response to our baptismal call from Jesus Christ, we the people of St. Joseph Parish, as members of the Roman Catholic Church,
desire to live and teach our faith in our families, school, and workplace, relying on the Word of God and the grace of the sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist.

Prayer of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Happy New Year! Let us begin this new year with a renewed sense of hope. Hope keeps our
eyes focused on the Lord and the good things to come. I want to share with you a letter we received from someone who was struggling in more ways than one. He called the parish office a week before Christmas asking for financial assistance and we were able to help him because of your generous donations.
Let us live as hope-filled people and continue to bring hope to those in our midst. And let us pray for each other this week.
To St. Joseph Church, I am at a loss for words. I have been challenged over the last year and a half after the loss of a job of many years of service. This combined with a failed marriage placed me into a downward spiral. Over the last several months, I have started spending time with the Lord in a daily devotional. Other than family and friends, this was my first time to reach out for assistance. This was a big step for me in dealing with my pride. I am very grateful for the church’s love, kindness, and generosity. I am a Christian and this has renewed my faith in trusting God. I have realized the need again for wor- ship with fellow Christians, thanks to this church. I am so thankful for St Joseph Catholic Church
May God Bless, A friend in Christ

Stewardship Awareness “...they fell down and worshipped Him. Then they opened their treas- ures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh...” Matthew 2:11 Notice the order of events in the Magi’s visit. First, they knelt before Jesus and prayed to Him. Then they presented Him with their gifts. We, too, must take time to pray before we present our gifts to the Lord. We never know what God may be asking us to share!
