All Are Welcome for Eucharistic adoration
Every Thursday (except for special occasions) from 1 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. the school children and
teachers go to St. Joseph Church for Eucharistic adoration. It is a break in the day that allows for peace and clarity.
The children will be lead in a reflection to help them to love Jesus always.
All are welcome to join them in this time of prayer and Catholic identity. The more we love Jesus, the happier we will be. Amen.
St. Joseph Church invites you to come home.
St. Joseph is looking into the repair and refurbishment of the remaining stained glass windows that were not included in the initial phases of the Church interior work.
For information on "adopting" a window for refurbishment, please contact Father Chris Bohnsack at 419-683-2015.
St. Joseph Catholic Church, along with Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church sponsor the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) program for adults interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith. Meetings begin in September. If you know of someone who is inquiring about the Catholic Church, please encourage them to contact the parish office at 419-683-2015 or Kim Legge at 419-683-4438. One of the greatest gifts we can share with another person is the gift of faith!
The Year of Ministry
A new ministry, a monthly Holy Hour will start Sept. 2, 2015, at St. Joseph Church, Crestline and will continue through the year on the first Wednesday of each month alternating between St. Joseph and Sacred Heart.
The theme for this month will be- Ministry! We need to pray that all our ministries do well by helping to save souls and glorifying God. Coming together in the presence of our Lord and Savior makes the Church stronger as well as our personal faith.
This month’s Holy Hour will be traditional with the next few being more contemporary (music, witness talks, etc.).
As your pastor, I can’t say enough how important it is for everyone to have a strong devotion to the Eucharist in order to be constantly growing in your Catholic faith!
