Hospitality Sunday

The Pastoral Council  is your "go-to" place when you have questions or concerns. To make this easier, we've added an e-mail link in several places on this page. You may also reach us by calling the Parish Center office at 583-1369.  Look for our new bulletin board in the church vestibule which will include member names and photos.  Pastoral Council  members will also try to be available on Hospitality Sundays after Mass. Come introduce yourself! Remember, you are always welcome at our meetings to present issues, ask questions, or just observe. We ask that you give us advance notice when you plan to attend. Meetings are Mondays, 7:00-8:30 pm downstairs in the Parish Center.

We look forward to a productive year in service to God and the the people of our parish!

PRAYER FOR THE PASTORAL COUNCIL

Gracious and ever living God, you lead and guide us always, you have given us your Son and the gift of your Spirit.

We, as the parish family of St. Joseph, ask you to guide us during these next few weeks and months as we prepare for our Parish Annual Meeting and the process of selecting new member for our Parish Pastoral Council.

May we consider who is able to best serve the needs of our parish in advising our pastor.

May we be fully aware of the needs of St. Joseph Parish and seek out those who can assist us in being faithful followers of Jesus Christ so that as true disciples we may serve the members of our parish community and others in our world.

We ask this through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, forever and ever. Amen.
