St. Joseph, Patron Saint of the Universal Church, ora pro nobis!
A Million Children Praying the Rosary
All of the children at St. Joseph are invited to be part of the "A Million Children Praying the Rosary" crusade on Thursday, October 18. Following the 8:00 a.m. Mass, this Thursday, Fr. Longua and/or Fr. Insco will lead the children of our parish in praying the Rosary. If you and your children are unable to come to St. Joseph for the Mass and the Rosary, please join us from home. Please see the flyer, from Aid to the Church in Need, to learn more about "A Million Children Praying the Rosary."
The Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima Statue Tour
The Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima statue will visit St. Joseph Catholic Church on Friday, October 19, from 2:00 PM to 8:30 PM. This statue was blessed by Pope Francis at the Vatican on October 23, 2013, ten days after he consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and has been visiting parishes all over the US since then. It shows Our Lady’s image in her “Last Vision” as she appeared to Sr. Lucia at the convent in Tuy, Spain on June 13, 1929.
Fall Rummage Sale
Our fall rummage sale will be Friday and Saturday, October 19 and 20, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. We will be setting up on Wednesday and Thursday, October 17 and 18, after Mass.
Rummage Sale donations can be brought to St. Joseph's Hall beginning the first Sunday in October and on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please bring gently used items. We do not accept any large appliances or furniture items.
All Souls’ Remembrance
If you would like your deceased relatives remembered in the Masses throughout the month of November, please send a comma-separated list (e.g., John Smith, Matthew Smith, Jane Smith) to Sandra Whelan. Envelopes will also be made available in the church for this purpose.
What are Your Skills and Talents?
We are compiling a list of different skills and talents of our parish family to use as a source for all the different needs and projects in the parish. Are you good at sewing, or maybe plumbing, gardening or carpentry, or computer work? The list is endless. We all have gifts to share. Please click the button below and fill out the questionnaire.
If you are a visitor to St. Joseph Catholic Church, we are happy to have you join us. All Masses at Saint Joseph are offered in the Tridentine Rite, in accordance with the liturgical books of 1962. Blue booklet missalettes are available in the pews to help you follow along with the Latin Mass. The readings can be found in the bulletin available in the vestibule. Please visit "New to the Latin Mass" for some helpful tips.

Choir Members Wanted
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. If interested or if you would like some more information, please contact Matthew Ley (please be sure to write “Choir” in the subject line). Rehearsals are currently on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 in St. Joseph’s Hall (a.k.a. the basement).
Pray for Our Pastor, Our Parochial Vicar, and our District Superior
Please remember to keep Fr. Longua, FSSP, Fr. Insco, FSSP, and Fr. Stinson, FSSP in your daily prayers.
A Prayer for Priests
O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Thy Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood. Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. Let Thy Holy Love surround and shield them from the world's contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and their everlasting crown hereafter.
O Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us; obtain for us many holy priests.
