Dear Parish Family,
Happy October! It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with you. We hope you had a wonderful summer and that you were able to take time to relax and enjoy some fun activities with family and friends. We’re sure you had to be creative, but where this is a will, there is a way! You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. It has been a special blessing to see so many of you at the daily and weekend Masses. For those that are still not able to join us in person, we hope you’ve been able to “attend” Mass with us via our livestream.
Fall usually bring thoughts of our very popular St. Joseph Holiday Craft Fair. Unfortunately, because of the ongoing limitations due to the coronavirus, we had to cancel this fun and very successful fundraising event for this year. After prayerful consideration, we’ve decided to run a different fundraiser this fall and some of the details are included in the flyer attached to this email. Please take a moment to read through the information and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us! We continue to be very grateful for your continued support and for everything you do for our parish!
God of all seasons, we thank you for Autumn.
We thank you
for the touch of coolness in the air that gives us a new burst of energy,
for the coloring of trees that shows the creativity of the Divine Artist,
for the falling leaves that reveal the strength of the branches,
for the hues of the fields that bring peace to our souls,
for the smiles on pumpkins that bring joy to children,
for the fall harvest that brings us gratitude for the bounty of our land,
for this change of seasons that reveals the circle of life.
God of all seasons, as you transform the earth, transform us by your Spirit.
Amen. - Rev. Doug Leonhardt, S.J.
God’s blessings and peace,
