Annual Bishop's Appeal
Thank you to those who have made gifts to this year's Annual Bishop’s Appeal. If you have not yet had a chance to make a pledge, we invite you to do so today. 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 raised beyond our diocesan goal are used to support our parish ministries here at Saint Joseph. Additional pledge forms are available in the church and at the parish office. You may also view more information and give online at Thank you again for your support of our diocesan and parish ministries!

Altar Server Training

Any baptized 5th grader or older who currently altar serves or wants to altar serve needs to attend two required training sessions this fall. The October training will focus on a few changes to our current practice and the November training will reinforce these new habits. Both sessions will look at the theology and "why" of the Mass and altar serving. Attendance at these sessions is required to be placed on the next server schedule. Please sign up for the two sessions now. For any questions or scheduling conflicts, please contact Seminarian Tom Bodart, C.S.C., at

Servers are encouraged to read through the parish Altar Server Manual before the training session. Servers may find these pages useful: Server Evaluation Rubric (pg. 48); Server Review Guide (pgs. 46-47); Practice Sheets (pgs. 41-45); an explanation of the purpose of altar serving (pg. 3); and the specifics of serving at Saint Joseph (pgs. 9-27).
