Whether it is a painting, film, image or music, praying with art offers an opportunity to reflect on different subjects, note our feelings, and tap more into the divine. This Art and Adoration series gives us the opportunity to deepen our relationship with Christ with the aid of wonderful art. This year, our focus is centered on the four words on the Diocesan logo for the Eucharist Revival: GATHERED, BLESSED, BROKEN, SHARED. These words remind us of our Eucharistic identity as the People of God, whose lives take on their fullest meaning only when we give them away in sacrificial love. 

Art & Adoration sessions are in church on the following dates starting with Adoration from 6pm and the talk at 7pm:

March 6 - Fr. Louis Thomas -  Gathered"

March 13 - Fr. Sal Shevchuk - "Blessed"

March 20 - Fr. Jared Orndorff - “Broken and Shared” 



St. Joseph Parish will be holding it's Parish Mission and Mini-Mission on the evenings of February 18-20 at 7pm in Church.

We are excited to have the Mini-Mission in Nolan Hall for children ages 4-8 simultaneously. We will host Fr. Joseph Tuscan, OFM Cap, National Director of the Archconfraternity of Christian Mothers and in full-time preaching ministry for the Capuchin Province of St. Augustine, who will present "REPENT and BELIEVE". With more than 25 years in the priesthood, Fr. Joseph Tuscan has served in Papua New Guinea in the South Pacific, Puerto Rico and in the United States as parochial vicor, pastor, military and hospital chaplain.
