A Few Notes

Thanks for supporting the Hoagie Sale this weekend. All proceeds benefit St. Joseph the Worker Parish.

Next week we will have Donuts in the Courtyard between the Church and Parish Center after all the Masses.

Preparations for our International Food Festival are under way! We will have a link available in the next E-News to sign up to volunteer. In the meantime, here are some ways you can help:
-Donate bottles of wine and liquor at the Parish Office for the Liquor Pick
-Return your raffle tickets to the Parish Office or pick up more.

Is God asking you to commit to a weekly hour in Adoration? We have day and evening hours available. We also have a sub list if you need to be away. Please ask Him. If interested our e-mail is above. If we can't learn to adore our Lord for one hour per week on earth, what makes us think we will choose to adore Him in heaven for eternity? You can foster your love for Jesus by hanging out with Him faithfully.

Prayer for Our Parish

Lord, we thank you in advance for sending committed adorers of Your Most Blessed Sacrament that we will always be blessed with the grace of Your Presence in our Chapel.

Dear God,
I believe that you have the ability to convert everyone at St. Joseph the Worker Church and I beg you to perform miracles in our lives that we will come to love you and never want to offend you.
I beg you to let us see our sins and run to the confessional, that the lines will be out the door.
Set the hearts of our priests on fire so that they burn with the desire for the conversion of every soul in the parish.
I implore you to make St. Joseph's a beacon in our diocese, that souls will be drawn by the holiness they find here.
I ask that you blind Satan to every parishioner, that they might have the space to know and love you without temptation.
I offer myself to you completely at whatever the cost.
Amen
