INDOOR FLEA MARKET
Thank you to chairwomen, Barb Fritz and Janie Terrell, for heading the return of an amazing event! Thank you to our volunteers and the Holy Name Society! With you and your hard work, the flea market was another great success. And thank you to our donors and shoppers! Not only was the flea market a benefit to St. Joseph Church, but it supplied some community assistance as well. The agencies we were able to assist were Be Concerned, St. Vincent de Paul, Fairhaven Rescue Mission, New Perceptions, I Have Wings Breast Cancer Foundation, Rose Garden Home Mission, New Hope Pregnancy Center, Cursillo, CASA, and the Diocesan Catholic Children's Home.
Again, THANK YOU!
--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.

Planning for the 2021 St. Joseph Parish Summer Celebration to be held on 8/13 and 8/14 has begun. We are in need of chairpersons for our Sponsor and Bid-N-Buy positions. These need to be filled before we can move forward and hold the event. Please contact Matt Zeck at [email protected] to volunteer. This is a very important event to supply necessary funds for the support of our missions including our school and religious education programs to name just two. Please consider volunteering for this St. Joseph tradition!
