Dear Members and Friends of St. Joseph Parish,

Happy Easter! I greet you this way as a reminder that we are called to celebrate the joy of the Resurrection throughout the Fifty Day Season of Easter. We will continue our focus on the gifts the resurrection of Jesus brings at Easter until Pentecost Sunday, May 23.

By accepting God’s blessings with gratitude, we are called to act as brothers and sisters in the Lord. As disciples of Christ, we are called to be faithful stewards of all that is entrusted to us. As members of the Body of Christ, we are to be reliable overseers of the rich variety of gifts we have received. Throughout the Easter Season and the entire year, we are called to share our gifts and live out our baptismal calling.

I am impressed with how you have maintained your financial support of St. Joseph Church. You are continuing to be generous with your parish and other charitable institutions. The St Vincent de Paul Society is maintaining its mission to help those in need of food and other items. For those of you who made a commitment to the Annual Bishop’s Appeal I see on the monthly report that you are meeting your pledges. Thank you to all of you!

Saturday, May 1, we will celebrate First Holy Communion with our youngsters at the 4:30pm Mass. This is an exciting day for the Candidates and their families. It also is a great reminder for all of us who receive Communion at Mass how Christ is present in our lives.

On Saturday, May 22, we will celebrate Confirmation with our youth at the 4:30pm Mass. As this is Pentecost Weekend, the Gift of the Holy Spirit will be especially visible in our young people. This will be the last time I will confer the Sacrament (except at the Easter Vigil or when we receive adults into the Church) as we have a new bishop who will minister the Sacrament in 2022.

I look forward to the day when I use this calendar letter to highlight parish social activities again! Praying that God keeps you and your loved ones healthy and safe, I remain,

Sincerely yours in Christ’s love,

Very Rev. Gregory F. Fedor, V.F.
