Tuesday, March 19, 2013 is the Solemnity of St. Joseph. Bishop Boissonneau will be here to celebrate a Solemn Mass at 7:30 pm. Following Mass, there will be a reception in the Parish Hall with the Blessing of St. Joseph’s Table. This tradition recalls St. Joseph’s special care for the poor. To help with this Feast, parishioners are asked to bring a dessert to the Parish Hall before Mass. And in keeping with St. Joseph’s tradition, we will also be collecting non-perishable food items to assist those in need in our Parish community via our St. Vincent de Paul Society’s Pantry.

On Monday, March 18, 2013 at 7:00 pm, we will have several confessors (11- 13) available here at St. Joseph Parish for confessions in preparation for Holy Week.
