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.’ ”

-- St. Bernardine of Siena

Paul Bunyan Saturday

The St. Joseph's Men's Group is looking for help on Saturday, August 19 anytime in the morning (8:00 am or later) to help chop and split wood. They are meeting in St. Joe's Cemetery and all parish men and young guys are invited to help with the three trees that are down in the Cemetery. The wood is then sold to support student scholarships.
