What's Happening at St. Joseph?
 

SAMOYA SUNDAY
Next weekend, August 18-19, will be Samoya Sunday weekend. Father Christopher Wanyonyi will be visiting to give us an update on our sister parish, St. Bernadette, in Kenya. Fr. Christopher will give the homily at each Mass. Please also join us on Sunday after the 5:00 pm Mass for dinner and a presentation. Our dinner menu will include lemon chicken, red potatoes, vegetable, salad, and cake. We hope to see you there!

ALPHA
The Alpha Course for adults will begin Thursday, September 20, and last for ten consecutive weeks with a weekend retreat in November. Each week includes a free dinner, music, a live talk approaching the basics of faith, and small group discussion. The simple topics for the week range from “How Can I Have Faith?” to “What Is the Importance of a Church?” to “What Does the Holy Spirit Do?” Many past attendees consider Alpha to be the powerful catalyst that connected/reconnected faith to their daily relationships while they learned to trust, heal, and authentically pray to God and with others. Each night begins at 6:30 pm in Marian Hall. Space is limited. Click here to sign up.

UPCOMING BAPTISM CLASSES
The next series of baptism classes for parents and godparents will take place on Monday, August 13 and Monday, August 20, at 7:00 p.m. in the St. Dominic/St. Maria Goretti Rooms inside of Marian Hall. Registration is required. To register, sign up at the Welcome Center in the narthex or contact Tracy Joy at the parish office.

ADULT CONFIRMATION CLASSES
Preparation for Adult Confirmation will begin this October for adults 19 years or older who have been baptized and received First Communion but never celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation. There are six in-person sessions to attend along with assigned readings. Adults will be confirmed with our high school confirmation group in mid-to-late February. Confirmation completes a Catholic’s initiation into the faith. Once confirmed, Catholics are free to marry in the Church, to be a godparent, and to serve in liturgical and catechetical ministries. Registration forms and the calendar are available from the parish office during regular office hours or at the Welcome Center on Sundays.  For more information, contact Tracy Joy, tracyj@stjoevan.org or 360-823-2833.

PREPARATION FOR FIRST RECONCILIATION & FIRST COMMUNION
Families with children over the age of seven and in second grade and who have completed one full year of parochial school or parish faith formation may register to prepare for sacraments this year. All forms are due back to the parish office no later than September 14. Registration forms can be found on the parish website, at the Welcome Center on Sundays, or at the parish office during regular office hours.  For more information, contact Tracy Joy, tracyj@stjoevan.org or 360-823-2833.
