St. Joseph Church frontFollowing the Lord means nothing less than the cross: offering ourselves with Jesus as a living sacrifice and not conforming ourselves to this world. Following him will entail derision and scorn, yet the Lord is our help.

Good day to you all! I don't know about y'all, but it seems to me that more and more I am constantly being asked to take sides on things. Which football team do I like more (that's easy "Packers"), or where do lean politically, liberal or conservative, or who's right in this argument or that and I'm sure the list could go on and on. Today's Gospel is also seeking for us to make a choice... are we going belong to God or to the world (are we "judging by God's standards" or "by man's"). .Read Fr. Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's bulletin.

Come and visit us.
