    Christmas TreeSharing Tree

    Gift tags for the Sharing Tree will be available for pick up at masses on the weekends of November 12th/13th and 19th/20th.

Gifts for the Sharing Tree are distributed to the Lyons VA Hospital, Engel Senior Center, Runnells Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare, and Catholic Charities.

  • COMMUNITY OUTREACH - ADOPT A FAMILY FOR CHRISTMAS
    Adopt A Family

    Many people are struggling to make ends meet for their day-to-day lives, let alone adding Christmas to the mix.  If you are blessed to have all you need, please consider helping those who don’t and sign up below to Adopt-a-Family this holiday season.

    We have provided information on each family and specific gifts for each family member on the sign-up sheet below so you can select which family works best for you.  

    http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054eaba722a1fb6-adoptafamily

    All gifts for your family must be returned to the rectory between 11/30-12/6.  The families which have a family ID# are from St. Joseph's.  Their gifts must be unwrapped and placed in large Christmas bags (shopping bag size) with tissue paper.  Each family member should have their own bag with a gift tag on the bag clearly labeled with the family ID and first name of the family member. 
    St. Joseph's has requested that we please only purchase what is requested which is just essential clothing.  You can purchase more than one outfit if you'd like or add small toys to the bags for the children, but unfortunately, storage space is limited so please make sure all items can fit in one shopping bag per family member. 
    The families with a letter for a family ID are from our parish or community so gifts should be wrapped and labeled with their family letter. 
    If you have any questions or concerns, please email the Community Outreach Ministry at sThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or call/text Meghan Calichman at 862-210-0467. 

    Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays!

  • ADULT BIBLE STUDY - THE PROPHETS - BEGINS JANUARY 10, 2017

    prophets

    THE PROPHETS - AN ADULT BIBLE STUDY

    If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as spiritual marriage counselors. They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom.

    The Prophets:  Messengers of Gods Mercy is presented by Thomas Smith! Each week, Tom teaching on DVD will introduce you to a new prophet from Scripture and learn how his message sheds light on our faith and our lives. In getting to know these messengers of God, you will read Scripture and the Catechism, while answering thought provoking questions and reflections and sharing with other study participants. Plus, you will learn practical ways to apply the messages of the prophets in your own life.

    Tuesday evenings beginning January 10th to March 21st  from 7 to 9 pm in the Church of the Little Flower, school building, room 2D

    Advanced registration is preferred to allow time to order study materials.
