The 4th Annual faithFULL Food Drive will be held on Sunday, April 2nd.  In conjunction with all Diocesan parishes we will collect food for our local pantries. Bags with suggested items will be handed out next weekend for you to fill and return on April 2nd.

The boiler in St. Joseph Church is in the process of being repaired. It took several iterations to discover all of the leaks in the heat exchanger – 3 hairline cracks in 3 different sections. And further to negotiate with the vendor for replacement parts. We are working to have the heat back on as soon as possible and appreciate your understanding.

We will offer the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick at the 6 pm and 8 am Masses Next weekend.
