Concert of Sacred Music
As we celebrate the Parish Year of the Eucharistic Revival, we will hold a Concert of Sacred Music that focuses on Eucharistic hymns and songs on Sunday, February 25, at 2:00pm in the church. The concert will combine the Parish Adult Choir, Children's Choir, Handbells, and instrumentalists for a beautiful witness to the power of music in our Eucharistic faith. There will be parish favorites, hymns chosen by the National Eucharistic Congress, as well as centuries-old classics to help us rejoice in the love that God shows us in the Blessed Sacrament. Come join us!

The weekend of February 24/25, we will once again host Stuff-a-Truck to help support St. Vincent de Paul. As you clean out your closets this winter, please remember St. Vincent de Paul and help us fill the Goodwill truck coming to our parking lot. Reach out to Tim Cleaver ( if you have any questions or would like to assist in helping to receive donations that weekend.

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.

Stations of the Cross
Join us on Fridays during Lent, at 7:00pm in the church, as we walk and pray the ancient devotion of the Way of the Cross. This short (30-minute) devotional prayer is a simple and traditional way to mark the season of Lent. The Stations of the Cross began as the practice of pious pilgrims to Jerusalem who would retrace the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary. Later, for the many who wanted to pass along the same route but could not make the trip to Jerusalem, a practice developed that eventually took the form of the fourteen stations familiar to us today. If you would be interested in leading the Stations of the Cross, please contact Theresa Slott at

Please note, Stations will begin at 4:30pm on Friday, March 8, and 1:00pm on Friday, March 29.
