Adult Continuing Education!
We are excited to announce, what we hope will be the first of many programs to help with understanding and growing deeper in your faith. Our CRE, Bennett Schurr, will be hosting a 10-week workshop utilizing FORMED. The session is called Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained; Part 1 Knowing the Faith.
“Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained is a systematic presentation of our Catholic Faith. It will lead you through the “big picture” of the Catholic Faith and our Creed is the guide. Symbolon brings together some of the most trusted Catholic teachers in the world to guide you through the breadth and richness of the Catholic faith.”
The program will be held over Zoom to begin on May 14th and running every Thursday and Monday until July. You must have access to a computer/laptop/tablet/phone that is able to run the Zoom application. Each session will be approximately an hour and a half, with a 30-45min video followed by discussion. The program is entirely free and all materials can be emailed for you to print out. All we ask is that you please register for the class. We are offering two times to meet, Mondays from 2:30-4:00pm and Thursdays from 11:00am-12:30pm. We are limiting each session to 10 participants so everyone has the chance to share and discuss. If there is more interest we may add more times as well.

For the entire year of St. Joseph, our parish will be hosting a traveling Sacred Heart Icon for vocations. Starting on Sunday March 21st and running until March of 2022, your family can host the Icon at your house for a week to pray for vocations. You would pickup the Icon at the Church after either the Saturday Vigil Mass or after any Sunday Mass. You would then return the Icon by Friday at 3pm. We ask that while you have the Icon in your home, that you pray specially for vocations. We will provide a laminated card with a prayer for vocations on it, for you. You may choose more than 1 week if you so wish.
