An Evening with Saint Joseph
Join us on Monday, March 19, when the parish will celebrate the Feast of Saint Joseph with a Mass at 5:30pm, followed by a soup and bread dinner and a reflection on Saint Joseph and Saint Andre Bessette given by parishioner Andrew Polaniecki at the Ackles Parish Life Center. This event is open to all; if possible, RSVP in advance to Sean Driscoll ( or 574-234-3134, or online here) so that we can have an estimate for food. Also please indicate if you will be in need of childcare for the evening. During Mass we will also be celebrating the Presentation of the Lord’s Prayer to our parish Elect and candidates for full communion in the Catholic Church who are preparing to celebrate the Easter sacraments.

Youth Mission Trip Application
This summer, Saint Joseph Parish will host two mission trips – one to Lorain County, OH, in June and another to Buckingham County, VA, in July. Due to limited capacity, we are asking all interested high school students (rising freshmen through current seniors) to submit an online application expressing why they desire to attend the mission trip. Those selected will be asked to attend separate formation sessions leading up to the trips. The application deadline is Monday, March 19. For questions, contact Sean Driscoll at

Help with Children's Liturgy of the Word
Help the children at the 10:00am Mass engage in the Scripture readings for Mass by signing up to be a Catechist for Children's Liturgy of the Word! Want to help, but not as a Catechist? Adults or Junior High and High School students can sign up to be a Helper for Children's Liturgy of the Word.Our goal is to have Catechists scheduled in pairs with 2-3 Helpers scheduled to assist with the children. More info on the online signup page!
