    Vocation Prayer Chalice

    If you are willing to have the Vocation Prayer Chalice in your home for a week, please call the parish office.

    Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Grace

    Grace is a supernatural gift of God to men and angels for our eternal salvation. The Church makes a distinction between sanctifying grace and actual grace. Sanctifying grace is “the gratuitous gift that God gives us to make us participants in His Trinitarian life” (Compendium, 423). It is the permanent dispo- sition (quality, or condition) to live and act in keeping with God’s call. Actual grace refers to God’s interventions at the beginning of our conversion or along our path to holiness.

    Special Thanks to Our Electronic Givers St. Joseph Parish would like to thank the families who are cur- rently giving electronically. You may not see these fellow pa- rishioners place an envelope in the basket every week, but their consistent giving does not go unnoticed in our parish office. Our parish is receiving income from those donors who have made the commitment to give to God first by having a desig- nated contribution automatically transferred to our parish through our Online Giving Program. If you would like to learn more about this easy, safe and secure way of giving, please contact Trish Seaman at the parish office or check it out on our website at and click on the Online Giving icon.

    The next item from Maintaining God’s Blessings that our parish is focused on is our sewage plan. For many years that was maintained with a sewage plant for school, church and preschool. The rectory waste was taken care of with its own septic system. Last week the waste from the rectory was redirected to the sewage plant. A new sewage plant is currently being de- signed to meet the needs of the entire parish. The current plant has been needed to be repaired and patched repeatedly. A time- table has not been established for this project at this time. But, know that it is what we are focused on currently. Let us pray for each other this week.

    Stewardship Awareness “If it does not please you to serve the Lord, decide today whom you will serve...As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15 When we commit to serve the Lord, we must be willing to become a partner in the work of the Lord. A partner is a person who invests their time, talent and treasure. If we say we serve God, we must actually do something and not merely talk about it!
