Together in Spirit


“He was chosen by the eternal Father as the trustworthy guardian and protector of his greatest treasures, namely, his divine Son and Mary, Joseph’s wife. He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying: ‘Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.’ ”

Invest in our Future - Multimedia System

St. Joseph of the Lakes recently sent out a letter to all parishioners regarding our goal of a new multimedia system for our Worship Space. We believe such an investment will not only replace a system that is nearly twenty years old, it will also enhance the liturgical experience and engage the congregation with visuals and better sound quality. 

invest in our futureThis week we reached nearly 80% of our $150,000 goal, as we recorded close to $120,000 in gifts for our Sound System and AV Equipment. As we approach the final weeks of this campaign, help put us over the top and make a donation of any size. You can simply designate a donation and place it in the weekly collection, or donated online by clicking on the "DONATE TODAY"  button below and select Invest in Our Future . We'd love to put in the order but we need to have the monies raised before we can proceed. 

With everyone's help, this can be a reality (hopefully) in time for Easter. Thank you for your wonderful generosity thus far!

HBO’s ‘The Young Pope’

Behind the opening credits of "The Young Pope," a naked baby boy crawls over a sea of infant mannequins, and a man dressed as the Roman pontiff emerges at the other end.

As bizarre as that may sound, the controversial, provocative new miniseries from pay-cable channel HBO only gets stranger from there.
