Generations Growing in Faith

After all the people had been baptized and Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, "You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased."

- Luke 3:21-22


Our St. Joseph celebration will take place on Saturday, March 17.  We will begin serving at 5:30 p.m. The St. Joseph Table tradition began in Italy in the Middle Ages, as a way of honoring and thanking St. Joseph for his intercession.  If you have a devotion to St. Joseph or have asked him to intercede, come and join the celebration in his honor.  Of course, you don’t need to have a special devotion to St. Joseph in order to join us for a great time.  Since the St. Joseph dinner is on Saturday and the rules of abstinence do not apply, as they did in Italy when the tradition began, we will be serving meatballs with the meal, even though the purest of St. Joseph Day celebrations continue to be meatless. 

Due to the nature of the dinner, and the overwhelming response in the past, we need to know the approximate number attending, and we do find it necessary to limit the number. Please RSVP as soon as possible to Deacon Mark at 471-7741, ext. 415.  We are asking for a donation of $10 per adult and $5 per child to cover the cost of food, soft drinks and coffee.  Diners may bring their own wine if they like. Vive San Giuseppe!
