ST. JOSEPH WOMEN'S CLUB
will have their first of two bake sales for the year of 2017 on the weekend of May 6th and 7th. We are requesting that all women of the parish help us out by baking something. So many people now have cell phones and no land lines and we have lost contact with you. You may be getting a call, but if not, please don't forget about us, we need your help. We have so many wonderful bakers and our bake sale is always a huge success with your help. With our funds we are able to minister to the needs of the altar and many other ministries in our parish and community. God bless all in our parish. For more info please contact Carole Mick (615) 868-9871.

When do we need God’s love most? Of course, we need that love every second of our lives. But at times, God’s love is especially precious to us, times when:
·We lose a loved one;
·Life becomes so confusing that we do not know where to turn; or
·Life just becomes meaningless and depression sets in.
At times like these, it is very important to have someone who cares. Our church has trained parishioners to serve as Stephen Ministers, who offer a ministry of Christian Caring. If you are interested in the care of a Stephen Minister or are interested in serving as a Stephen Minister, contact Desiree Alford at 615-568-3378. We are seeking applicants to join this ministry now!
