Dear Parishioners of St. Joseph Parish,
Happy Feast of St. Joseph.
Just to remind you that tomorrow (Friday, March 20) there is no Lenten Meal and no organized Stations of the Cross as we ordinarily do on Friday’s in Lent.
You are welcome to stop by the church anytime between 9:00 A.M. and 9:00 P.M. for your own personal prayer and devotion. There are many copies of the Stations of the Cross and you can pray the stations on your own.
You might think of this last detail as a sit-down announcement.
These are extraordinary times and we need extraordinary kindness and compassion to travel faster than the spread of the virus.
I am asking that all parishioners phone at least five other parishioners to inquire how they are doing. At the same time you might remind them that all Masses at St. Joseph and throughout the Archdiocese are cancelled until further notice.
We continue to ask the intercession of St. Joseph as we look for hope in these extraordinary times.
