This year on the Feast of St. Joseph, we will join with our beloved pastor to thank God for his 40 years of Priesthood! We here at St. Joe’s feel so very blessed that God has allowed this good and gentle pastor to remain here for a third of his priesthood so far!
The weekend celebration will kick off with a special reception in Marian Hall following the 4:30 Mass on Saturday, March 18th. Receptions will follow all Sunday Masses as well, including one following the 12:30 Mass. All of these after-Mass receptions will provide opportunities for people to express their appreciation to Fr. Mike for his 40 years of service.
Our 12:30pm Mass on Sunday, March 19th, will be a special Anniversary Mass honoring Fr. Mike’s 40 years of Priesthood. Fr. Mike’s family and some longtime colleagues and friends will be joining us for this Eucharistic celebration.
The celebration will conclude on Sunday afternoon, March 19th, with a 3 p.m. dinner honoring Fr. Mike and celebrating his 40 years of priesthood. This catered dinner will be by advance reservation only, with
tickets available for advance purchase
at $15/each until March 10th. There will be limited seating for this event in the gym, so please purchase your tickets early if you plan to attend!
There will be lots of opportunities to honor and appreciate Fr. Mike on his special anniversary weekend. For those of you wishing to give him a gift, Fr. Mike has asked that in lieu of gifts, donations be given instead either to our
St. Vincent de Paul
ministry or to our sister parish,
St. Joseph in Jifna
