Spirit Fest X
Spirit Fest X. That's right. This is St. Joseph's TENTH annual Spirit Fest and we have so much to celebrate!
Your support enables St. Joseph's to reach more people. Our actions minister to people within our community and offer education and participation to minister and offer support to other parts of our country and our world.
"In these uncertain times..." Have you heard that once or twice lately? Us too. We don't know what tomorrow will bring. St. Joseph's goal is to welcome all those who seek the Lord. We strive to make this easy for people by offering options: in-person and online Mass, Adoration Chapel, reconciliation, in-person and online group meetings, pastor and lay ministers visits and calls, prayer chains, children's classes, bible studies, coffee groups, choir, quilting circle, charity and justice commission, and so many more. We all have gifts to share.
Nothing can stop us! Change isn't easy for some. We recognize this. St. Joseph's still encourages all to embrace new changes and opportunities. In order for us to raise the necessary funds to continue the good works and deeds of our parish community, technology is taking the lead with this year's Spirit Fest. Volunteers are available to answer questions and help you through this process. Let us know how we can help!
Admittedly, COVID has changed the way everyone operates
and manages their day-to-day life. We at St. Joseph's are committed to doing things safely and following recommended guidelines. We will NOT let fear be greater than our faith! We are finding new ways to share the Gospel, hold meetings and minister to others.
We need everyone! St. Joseph's depends on your support. Baptisms, First Communions, Confirmations, holy marriages, anointing of the sick and funerals are important to our spiritual well being. Keeping our church building in good physical standing (things like lights and heat), and operational with staff and clergy is critical to our parishes basic needs.
