Dear Members and Friends of St. Joseph Church,

 

As we face the autumn season, it is important to stop and give thanks for the rich variety of blessings God provides in all of our lives. Even as the pandemic continues disrupting so many aspects of our lives, God is present with grace and blessings in our midst. The more we recognize God’s loving presence in our experiences and activities, the more we authentically celebrate the Eucharist and live as a Christian community. I am convinced that God gives us our abilities, our resources and life itself so that we can gratefully share whom we are and what we have with praise and thanksgiving. Each of us is called to intentionally, thoughtfully, and proportionately share something of our time, talent, and treasure with our Church and with charities. This prayerfully planned giving of ourselves is one of the ways we live the Eucharist in our daily lives. Our faith community is as vibrant and alive as each of us is willing to share of ourselves.

 

For a gentle reminder to see just how much you are already living as good stewards of God’s gifts, take the time to do this little exercise. Look at your finances and your calendar for the last month. Calculate how you have spent your time and money over the last 30 days. Describe how you have used your abilities for the sake of people beyond your immediate family. I am confident that some meaningful percentage of your resources has been shared out of gratitude to our Loving God.

 

Here are some of the highlights for the month of October:

 

 

Looking ahead, the Mass Schedule for All Saints Day and All Souls Day is the following:      

Nov. 1: 6:00 pm. Mass at St. Joseph.

Nov. 2: 9:00 am. Mass at St. Joseph and 6:00 pm Mass at IHM.

 

Praying that God continues to bless you with good health, I remain

 

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

 

Rev. Gregory F. Fedor/Pastor
