Mass of Remembrance
Mass of Remembrance…November 2, 2018
“I have loved you with an everlasting love. I have called you and you are mine.” Is. 43 These words were very much in the minds and hearts of the congregation on November 2 as we gathered for the Mass of Remembrance. It was a time to say goodbye and to give back to God the loved ones who were part of our lives for so many years. They belonged to God and He called them home to be with him.
As lighted candles were brought to the altar and tears were shed, it was one more reminder to say thank you for all the ways they blessed us and helped make us the people we are today..
TO ALL OUR DEPARED FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WE SAY:
We thought of you with love today, And that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too. We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name. Now all we have are memories And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in His keeping.
We have you in our hearts. (Rose De Leon)

Hispanic Heritage Weekend
Hispanic Heritage Weekend Videos - Be sure to attend next years festivities!
On behalf of St. Joseph’s Parish, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you who participated in the Hispanic Heritage celebrations this past weekend. The dinner-dance event on Saturday evening was a success and everyone present had a great time enjoying the delicious food, live entertainment, and dancing. Sunday’s afternoon festivities were also a great time to strengthen our parish community, as well as enjoy a variety of traditional Hispanic foods and entertainment. The purpose of these events was not only to fundraise for our parish, but also for our Hispanic brothers and sisters to share their beautiful culture with the greater community and to bring us closer as one family of God. A very special thank you also to the members of the Hispanic community and so many other volunteers for working tirelessly to prepare the weekend’s events: May God bless you and your families
abundantly for your dedicated service to our parish community!
Departe de la Parroquia de San José, nos gustaría extender un sincero agradecimiento a todos ustedes que participaron en las celebraciones de la Cultura Hispana el pasado fin de semana. El evento de cena y baile del
sábado por la tarde fue un éxito y todos los presentes pasaron un buen rato disfrutando de la deliciosa comida, el entretenimiento en vivo y el baile. Las festividades del domingo también fueron un gran momento para fortalecer nuestra comunidad parroquial, así como para disfrutar de una variedad de platillos típicos. El propósito de estos eventos no fue solo para recaudar fondos para nuestra parroquia, sino también para que nuestros hermanos y
hermanas hispanos compartieran su hermosa cultura con la comunidad en general y así estar más unidos como una sola familia de Dios. Un agradecimiento muy, muy especial también a los miembros de la comunidad hispana y a tantos otros voluntarios por trabajar incansablemente para preparar los eventos del fin de semana: ¡que Dios les bendiga a ustedes y a sus familias en abundancia por su servicio y dedicación a nuestra comunidad parroquial!
