It’s a Wrapping Party!

Wrapped presentsWe’re hosting a wrapping party the evening of Thursday, December 12 starting at 5:30 pm or anytime you can drop by. This evening is complete with cookies, music, and holiday cheer as we wrap up some of the gifts for special girls and boys that we collect through our Christmas Trees Project.  If you’re interested in helping contact Denise Walsh at: 651.784.3015 or at [email protected].

 

Help Us Plan the Vision for Our Future

The Parish Pastoral Council is working to renew the long term vision for St. Joe’s.  It’s important that we hear from all parishioners as we work to create this new vision and plan for our future. We encourage all parishioners to attend one of three sessions scheduled for Saturday, December 14 after the 5:00 Mass, and December 15 after the 8:30 and 10:00 Masses in Room 103 to discuss our future. Please join us to share your ideas to help us identify and prioritize our long-term goals and initiatives.

 

Movies & Theology - Thursday, December 12 at 6:30 pm

Come join us as we complete the fall series of “Movies and Theology” with a well-known classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”  This Jimmy Steward and Donna Reed film is shown on TV every year, but perhaps you really have not seen the WHOLE MOVIE! Most showings on TV are edited heavily to run in time allotted (which means making room for lots of commercials). Even though it is still advent, this film brings many theological topics for discussion. Appropriate snacks will be provided! Come and bring a friend or two. We meet in Rooms 101-103.

Faith Formation Family - Hospitality Greeter Ministry

It has been said often by new parish members that they feel “welcome” here at St Joseph of the Lakes.  That is one of the greatest compliments we can receive. Our Hospitality Ministry plays an important role in this compliment and the Liturgy Commission would like to enhance this ministry with a new Hospitality Greeter.

We are inviting individuals and families to sign up and take a turn as a Hospitality Greeter for a Mass. Your “job” will be simple! You will stand in our gathering space and extend a friendly greeting to those arriving for Mass. When Mass begins, you will find a seat in the worship space to participate in the liturgy.  After Communion is completed, the Greeters will then assist the Hospitality Ministers with the distribution of the bulletins as our parish members leave.  We see this as an opportunity to show our love of Jesus Christ to one another in the simple act of giving special attention to our parish members and visitors.

We will be asking our Faith Formation families to participate so that each week we will have different families taking turns and involving their children. We also would like YOU to help us out and continue to make St Joe’s a welcoming parish that is alive with the Spirit.
