All Are Welcome for Eucharistic adoration
Every Thursday (except on 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 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!
There is a live stream Mass on Facebook, for anyone who would like to pray at home? They can watch the parish Facebook page for dates and times. Anyone can access this.
It isn’t necessary to have a Facebook account.
St. Joseph Church invites you to come home.
