St. Joseph Parish is a Catholic community ministered by the Capuchin Franciscans. Through our common baptism, we are united with the Body of Christ. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we seek to grow in holiness through the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and fidelity to the Word of God as handed down to us through Sacred Scripture and the tradition of the Catholic Church.
Fall Festival 2014
Let us remember to give thanks to God for all the blessings that were given to our parish festival. From the Lord's gift of a beautiful day to the great fellowship shared to the absolutely delicious dinners served, there was great reason for saying, "Thanks be to God." The many visitors who had such a good time at the Festival had many words of praise for the hospitality they experienced from the parish family. To all of you who worked so hard and in so many ways, sincerest thanks. There are too many people whose names should really be mentioned here and without whom there would be big gaps in the smooth running of the festival, but we mention our Festival Managers: Kathy Weleski, Howard Coller, Kathy Lawton, Todd Trettel, Dennis Cornetti, and Karyn Roenigk. Our gratitude to them and they express their thanks to all of you for your response to this parish event. This year’s Festival served an amazing 2,413 dinners (2,288 adults/125 children).
Many Thanks A note of heartfelt thanks to all of you who participated in any way for the festival. It was wonderful to see so many families working together for this event. Twenty-six teens signed up for service hours. They certainly lightened the load for so many. The young, the middle-aged, and our legion of veteran folks enjoyed a profitable day of camaraderie and fun. Heartfelt thanks to all of you!
The Country Store Committee extends its thanks to all those parishioners and extended family members who so very kindly donated items for this year's Country Store from the baked goods; fresh produce; homemade crafts and other treasures that made our store so popular; and to all those who worked before, during and after the festival with our clean-up, we are truly grateful. God bless you.
Hats off to Michael Pater and others who pulled together our Kids’ Games this year; Julie Patrick who did a fabulous job with the Food Booth; Bud Roenigk, Matt Cimbala and crew who introduced us to Black Jack. Thanks to all the “outside” and “inside” groups who proved that “None of us have it all together, but TOGETHER, we have it all! God bless you all!
