Parish Reconciliation Service
Our annual Advent Reconciliation Service will take place Monday, December 10, at 7:00pm in the church. Materials are made available for guidance. Don’t miss this opportunity to be reconciled to Christ and His Church so that you may welcome the Lord with joy when he comes!

Lessons & Carols
Join for Lessons & Carols on Tuesday, December 11, at 6:00pm in the church. Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century. In this service, we listen to Scripture and holy lessons which recount the promise of a Messiah and the fulfillment of that promise with the Incarnation. Each lesson is followed by a carol or other song that reflects on the lesson's message. Our Children's Choir and Parish Choir will join to lead us in musical prayer as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of Christ at Christmas.

Advent Candle Procession
Families are invited to carry in the Advent candles at Mass each weekend throughout the Advent season. Sign up online now to participate.

Christmas Art & Environment
It is truly a delight to walk into the church for Christmas and see it transformed into a celebration of the Nativity of Our Lord. Many volunteers are needed to assist! We will set up trees following the 10:00am Mass on Sunday, December 23. We will finish the rest on Monday, December 24 beginning at 9:30am, with family-friendly options for those with younger children who would like to participate. Sign up online or contact Theresa Slott at for more info.

Advent/Christmas Children's Choirs
All children of Saint Joseph Parish in 1st-8th grades are invited to sing in the Children’s Choir for Advent Lessons & Carols taking place Tuesday, December 11, at 6:00pm, and/or for the 4:00pm Christmas Eve Mass. Sign up online at the links above or contact Theresa Slott at

Annual Bishop's Appeal
Thank you to those who have made gifts to the Annual Bishop’s Appeal. If you did not yet make an Annual Appeal pledge, we hope you will take time to do so today. No gift is too small (or too big)! Please give from the heart so that the many great ministries of our diocese can continue to be funded. We hope that all parishioners will participate; funds over our diocesan goal will directly support our parish ministries.

Additional pledge forms are available in the church and at the parish office. You may also view more information or give online at Thank you again for your support of our diocesan and parish ministries!
