Noll Award Recipient
Congratulations to Steve Theissen on receiving the 2021 Robert B. Noll, Sr., Service Award!
(Steve with his family after receiving a statue of St. Joseph.)
This award is given each year to honor a parishioner of St. Joseph Parish in recognition for his/her Christian service to the people of St. Joseph Parish. Steve models so many of the virtues of St. Joseph, from his silent daily service, to his eager volunteering in ministries, to his persistent prayer for our parish each day, Steve is always looking to serve God through service to Christ’s holy Church. On behalf of all the parishioners at St. Joe’s, congratulations, and thank you, Steve!
There were so many great nominees that it was truly humbling for all involved to see how many wonderful and worthy parishioners we have. Steve's name will be included on the service award plaque in the parish hall, known as Noll Hall, with all of the award winners who have preceded Steve in receiving this honor. We have a wonderful past, present, and future with all of the dedicated parishioners of St. Joseph Parish.
Thank you, Steve, and to all the parishioners who serve the parish! And Happy feast day of St. Joseph the Worker!
--An excerpt from an online article in Vatican News (December 8, 2020):
In a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father; a father who is creatively courageous, a working father, a father in the shadows.
The Letter marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pope Pius IX’s declaration of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To celebrate the anniversary, Pope Francis has proclaimed a special “Year of St Joseph,” beginning on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception 2020 and extending to the same feast in 2021.
