Feast of St Joseph Mass, Procession & Dinner

Feast of St Joseph Mass, Procession & Dinner

Saturday, 19 March is the Feast of St Joseph and we’re celebrating!

  • 5p Mass of St Joseph & Procession, a wonderfully unique way to honor the foster father of our Lord. Hymns and other musical pieces will offer a chance to sing together the glorious holiness of this mighty patron and spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mother!
  • An Italian meal awaits with spaghetti, salad and rolls. Families are encouraged to bring a dessert to share. We’ll have fun with a Knights of Columbus photobooth, a game of “Kids Say The Darndest Things led by Gus Killough, and a craft sponsored by Home Depot.

If you’re unable to join us for Mass, please arrive at 5.50p for feasting and fun!

Please remember that we close the church due to expected inclement weather for a number of safety related reasons: the Fathers do not live on campus, but on the top of a hill where the road is usually not snowplowed or cleared of ice; ice storms north of I-85 and 385 often cause power outages which mean no electricity or water, downed trees and power lines on and near campus; etc.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.
