Retirement Fund for Religious. There will be a second collection next Sunday, December 16, to support the archdiocesan retirement fund for religious. Please be as generous as means allow.
Please fill out First Communion Registration Forms and return by January 6. Please note that registration is open to registered and attending parishioners only. Classes will begin in late January and First Communion will be in May. If there is a question about a child’s readiness, please contact Fr. Saguto.
Sunday Socials are back, at least on a limited basis. Join us at Gardens of Salonica Restaurant at 19 5th Street NE (just down the road from the church) following the 10:30 AM Mass next Sunday, December 16. Parking is available in the Wells Fargo lot across the street. It is hoped to have this every third Sunday of the month to start off; if it proves successful, then another Sunday could be added. It’s a lovely setting and we are grateful to the restaurant owners for their hospitality!
The St. Joseph Men’s Guild will meet on Wednesday, December 12, beginning with Mass at 7:00 PM, followed by Benediction. Confession will be available at 6:30. Husbands and fathers, as well as those aspiring to marriage, are always encouraged to attend.
Weekly or monthly donations and tithes can now be made via direct deposit! This can be done by clicking on the new “Online Giving” link on the parish website. The link is user-friendly and should be self-explanatory.
- To set up recurring donations, click the “First Time?” button and create an account.
- One-time “Quick” gifts are also possible through this link without logging in.
- A ConnectNow Giving App can also be downloaded to the phone, should that float one’s boat.
While direct deposit is encouraged, check and cash donations are still welcome. However, the envelope system will be discontinued at the end of November. After that time, for cash donations to be credited for tax purposes, please be sure to put your name and address on the envelope that is used so it can be identified and recorded. Thank you!
