St. Joseph Church frontThe person with true wisdom, like Solomon, will seek the reign of God and treasure it above all else. It is more precious than gold and silver. Thus one becomes conformed to the image of Christ, the Son.

Greetings to you all! To more fully understand what is being offered to us this week, let us look at the Church’s teaching on Dogma for a moment. For many of us the word “dogma” presents an image of a cold statement of the faith, important for theological discussion, but totally irrelevant for living the Christian life. This simply is not so. Dogma is alive and continually growing as we come to a clearer understanding of what makes a better Catholic Christian. If we are going to lead a Christian life, we have to know who Jesus is for us and how Christianity can exist in the modern world. Still, remember, no one has ever been saved by Dogma. Christ does the saving. Dogma is a time and culture sensitive teaching and definition of the truth of the Lord. Read Fr. Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's bulletin.

Come and visit us.
St. Joseph Catholic Church is located in southern St. Petersburg, Florida, on 22nd Avenue South, just east of the 22nd Street traffic light. If you are visiting this area on vacation, we are very convenient to the downtown area and the beaches. See the map for precise directions.
