Thursday, December 7 – 5:30pm

Novena for Haiti
The situation in Haiti continues to be unstable. Please join in prayer for the people of Haiti with a novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the patroness of Haiti. The novena will begin on Thursday, November 30, and end on December 8, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, which is the feast day for our sister parish, Mary Immaculate in Platon.

The Novena Prayer: Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Patroness of Haiti, we ask your intercession for the people of Haiti. Please bring these petitions before the throne of your Son: for peace and security in Haiti, for comfort of the afflicted and hope to the despairing, for provisions of shelter and food. Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us and for Haiti, that we may experience peace, joy, and love through your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Advent Lessons & Carols
On Monday, December 11, at 6:00pm, our parish adult choir, children’s choir, and handbell choir will come together to lead music for Advent Lessons and Carols. This service alternates lessons (Scripture readings or reflections) with Advent carols to draw our focus on the Incarnation during the Advent season. Children in 1st grade or older who want to sing for this service can sign up here.

Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit
The Eucharistic Miracle Exhibit is part of the Vatican International Exhibition of Eucharistic Miracles of the World. With an assortment of photographs and historical descriptions, the exhibition presents some of the principal Eucharistic Miracles that have taken place throughout the ages in various countries of the world and which have been recognized by the Church, including several which have occurred in this century.

The Exhibit will be on display in the Saint Joseph Parish Gymnasium (door #9) after all Masses on Saturday, December 16, and Sunday, December 17. Please come to learn more about our Eucharistic Lord and the vast richness bestowed on the universal Church in the form of miracles associated with His Eucharistic Presence.

Support the Annual Bishop's Appeal!
Thank you to those who have made gifts to the Annual Bishop’s Appeal. If you have not yet had a chance to make a pledge, we invite you to take time to do so today. Please give from the heart so that the many great ministries of our diocese may be funded. We hope that all parishioners will participate, as funds raised by our parish beyond our diocesan goal will directly support our parish ministries here at Saint Joseph. View more information and give online today at Pledge forms are also available in the church and at the parish office. Thank you again for your support of our diocesan and parish ministries!

Eucharistic Adoration
Thank you to everyone who has been committed to making the beautiful ministry of Eucharistic Adoration available in the church on Thursdays from 7:30am - 9:00pm.

Please consider stepping into the role of apostleship so that we may continue providing this beautiful ministry to our community during this Parish Year of the Eucharistic Revival. The signup may be found here: St. Joe Adoration Apostle. We encourage everyone to prayerfully discern being an Apostle for one of our 30- or 60-minute time blocks, but if you would like to just be on our substitute list then please complete this substitute form.

Parish Year of the Eucharist
As we enter into the second phase of our National Eucharistic Revival, we will be making an intentional effort within our St. Joe community to foster Eucharistic devotion and mission at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through faithful celebration and awareness of the Mass, Eucharistic Adoration and procession, small group formation, service, and communal celebration. Please join us on this journey as we seek to re-encounter the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist and thus rediscover the fullness of our identity as one Body of Christ. More information about upcoming events and opportunities may be found in the bulletin and on the website.
