Christmas 2009 Print E-mail

St. Joseph Church was festively decorated for Christ's birthSt. Joseph Church was festively decorated for Christ's birth.  Beautiful hymns were sung at all Masses, especially at the midnight Mass led by Mark Roszczewski and the choir.  The altar servers were recognized for their service and presented cross necklaces blessed by Father Kryzysztof and Father Gabriel.  This year, the altar servers made ornaments to decorate the tree on 'St. Joseph's side'  and the Children of Mary decorated the tree on 'Mary's side' by the navity.

"And it came to pass, when the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, 'Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing that is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us."  Luke 2:15

May everyone have a blessed Christmas season.


What does Jesus’ birth mean to me?

Responses from the altar servers December 2009
Ranging in age from 9 to 17 years old.

Robert W.:  The birth of Jesus is important to me because the Savior that everyone was talking about was born.

Tyler B.:  Jesus’ birth means holy lives.

Matt B.:  To me, Jesus’ birth is a time of rejoicing because it signals that God wanted to save us from sin and did this by sending his only Son to save us.



Coffee Sundays at St. Joseph's Print E-mail

Fr. Krzysztof Wieliczko greets the Coffee Sunday participantsAt the end of the liturgy we hear, "Go in peace to love and serve the Lord", to which we reply, "Thanks be to God". And so we begin our week!  What better way to start after Mass than at our Coffee Sundays downstairs in the parish Hall!

Held the first Sunday of each month during the school year, we look forward to Coffee Sundays as an opportunity to fellowship with our brothers and sisters in the parish, for making new friends, and offering a friendly place for visitors. Our photos here were taken Sunday, December 6th after the 8 a.m., and 9:30 a.m. Masses.

See you on the next first Sunday!

"Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired."  - Mother Teresa

Knights of Columbus Installation, St. Joseph parish Hall Print E-mail

Knights of Columbus Installation, St. Joseph parish HallSt. Joseph church Hall was the place on June 15, 2009, for the Installation of Local Officers of the Knights of Columbus.

Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 13,000 councils and 1.7 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.

For more information about the Knights of Columbus, please go to their website -

St. Joseph Book / Film Discussion Print E-mail

St. Joseph Book / Film DiscussionThis new parish-based discussion is a great opportunity for exposure to books and films that might not be offered in a secular group.
All adults are welcome to join in the discussion the first Sunday of every month, during Coffee Sundays, and will have the opportunity to make suggestions for the next selection.

For a brief idea of what we're about, we look to John Paul II -

"In the Pastoral Constitution Gaudium et Spes, the Fathers of the [ Vatican II ] Council stressed "the great importance" of literature and the arts in human life: "They seek to probe the true nature of man, his problems and experiences, as he strives to know and perfect himself and the world, to discover his place in history and the universe, to portray his miseries and joys, his needs and strengths, with a view to a better future"."
- John Paul II
