The month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This is primarily due to the fact that the liturgical feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated annually on October 7. It was instituted to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in gratitude for the protection that she gives the Church in answer to the praying of the Rosary by the faithful.
Join St. Joseph Church for 10 Days of the Rosary beginning Friday, October 13th through Sunday, October 22nd. During the week the service will begin at 6:00pm with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament followed by the Rosary, Benediction and then Mass. On Saturday and Sunday we will begin with Mass at 4:30pm and 8:30am followed by Exposition, Rosary and then Benediction. This is meant for the entire parish community Please make a special effort to attend.
A schedule with those leading the Rosary can be found by clicking the picture to left!

Stop by the kiosk and pick up a copy of True Reformers by Jerome K. Williams. This book explores the lives of ten great saints who led the Church's rebirth from the fallout of Renaissance decline and the unrest and confusion caused by the Protestant Reformation. Also, look for Prayer Time. This booklet is a collection of Catholic prayers and other helpful aids, such as, the Beatitudes, Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit, and Precepts of the Church. May our Lady of Fatima guide and protect us and lead us ever closer to Jesus!

Spiritual Motherhood is a supernatural way for women to care for souls, especially priests. It is a type of maternity that nurtures Divine Life in others by doing Gods Will centered on the Holy Eucharist, faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and it focuses on Authentic Marian Femininity and Maternity.
“If the desired renewal of the Church depends for the most part on its priests, then it will also depend to a larger degree on the families and in particular women and mothers” (Pope St. John Paul II, May 4, 1987).
Who can become a Spiritual Mother?
