Registration for the Sacrament of Confirmation is now open! Bishop Kemme has lowered the age for ordinary reception of this important and holy Sacrament to those who are in the 6th and 7th grade. This means that for the upcoming class we will have students from 6th grade through 10th grade. If you have a child who will be entering 6th grade or higher and who has not yet been confirmed, please call the parish office to register your child. We need copies of each student's baptismal certificate. Classes will begin later this summer with Confirmation taking place in January of 2020. Due to the larger size of this class, we are asking for additional assistance forming our Confirmandi. If you would like to help out with instructing our youth, please let the parish office know. 

A live viewing of the Town Hall Meeting is available on Facebook.

Second, the current rectory is not sufficient to house two priests. We are looking for another house close in the neighborhood, if available or build a new house on campus.

Our school building is in need of attention. Denish Kerschen of The Law Company, Inc has assessed the building and recommends renovating this building that has good bones. Father proposes starting a capital campaign by 2021 to be able to refurbish the school building. It's going to take hard work and sacrifice. The walls are good and the building solid. Architects have come and are putting together a plan. 

Andrew Purcell spoke about the youth of our parish and asked parishioners to pray for our youth. 

Judi Scheidler's introduced Christ Life which will start at St. Joseph parish this fall. This seven-week course starts on September 4th. Think of it as a soul-adjustment by the Holy Spirit. Stay tuned for more information and sign-up.
