Catechism Classes

As announced...


Catechism Lesson


"Catechism Lesson" by Jules Alexis Meunier



Sacred music has a very important place in the worship of the Church. Having beautiful sacred music can only be achieved through much dedication on the part of the choir. New members are always welcome. Men are particularly needed at this time. If interested or if you would like some more information, please contact (please be sure to write “Choir” in the subject line). Rehearsals are on Friday evenings from 4:30-6:15 (prior to the 6:30 PM Mass) and on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 in St. Joseph’s Hall (a.k.a. the basement).

"Happy the priest who loves his pastor's lot and lives wholly in it, fulfilling day by day the slight and despised acts of charity to all who need his care, and laying up in heaven unconsciously the gold dust of a humble life, looking only for his eternal reward."
