St. Joseph Church frontJesus was obedient to the Father, even to death on a cross. We need never fear if we turn away from the path of virture for the Lord is ever ready to forgive us, if we but repent. Remember, the Lord’s compassion and kindness are from of old.

Hello my friends, today we are challenged to say "yes" to God and "no" to a life of sin. It's easy for us to say we believe in Christ and His teachings, and yet it’s also sometimes just as easy to act as if we had no idea what those teachings of Christ are. Sometimes we say "yes" only on the outside, but don't commit to the "yes" on the inside. To be committed, means to have Christ's attitude... total self giving and obedience to the Father's will. In other words, our "yes" cannot be said in words, but through the way we live our lives. Read Fr. Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's bulletin.

Come and visit us.
