First, thank you, again, so much to those of you who gave towards our “Lead with Beauty” Campaign for this year’s Extraordinary Give! We raised over $22K towards our goal of $24K. Every dollar given will go towards preserving the historic integrity of our beautiful stained glass windows! We are so grateful for your investment to preserve our parish architecture.
Speaking of architecture…
Check out VIDEO NUMBER THREE on Catholic Architecture! I am so happy to finally get to share this video with you! By the way, if you have not seen them already, here are videos ONE and TWO.
The beauty of Catholic art must awaken the soul and mind to the wonder and mystery of God and His creative love for us. God, who is Beauty Himself, loves us so much that He uses the beauty of art to communicate to us in a myriad of different ways. And in a culture where half-heartedness and duplicitousness is lauded and commonplace, it is imperative that we as Catholics Lead with Beauty, not just in our parish architecture, but in OUR LIVES. As all of the Saints remind us, true beauty can only be found by living a HOLY life as an Intentional Disciple of Jesus. Let us, together, lead with the beauty of our lives in our beautiful St. Joseph Parish…
I hope that you enjoy these videos, and again, THANK YOU for all that you do to support our parish. I’m grateful.

This month we celebrate Advent which leads us to Christmas. Let us pray that our parish family will be close and help each other during the special season. May we share God’s grace with all. We also celebrate St. Nicholas (Dec 6), The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Dec 9), which is pictured on Blessed Mother side 6th window, Our Lady of Guadalupe (Dec 12) and Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph (Dec29). Have a blessed holiday season.
Intercessory Prayer Ministry is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment of group prayer. Intercessory prayer knows no boundaries and can also be accomplished in your own home. Each month we will post the grace our group will be praying for the good of St. Joseph’s Catholic community.
Let us pray that, joined in faith, hope, and love, we support all those who offer their lives in service to the Church.
Let us together ‘Lead with Beauty’ by giving to St. Joseph’s Church on November 22nd (beginning at midnight) to support the historic preservation of our beautiful stained glass windows!
