Easter Vigil 2014

The road officially began last September for these parishioners to be baptized, be received into full communion with our Church, or be confirmed and make their first Eucharist. I say officially, because each of these folks and you and I have traveled quite a journey to be here today.
Areas of study, prayer, and reflection include: Sacred Scripture, God as Trinity, the history of the Church including the Reformation, the Sacramental and Prayer life of believers, ethical and moral questions…In general, what our Church teaches and believes. Along with all of this we have shared some meals and spent some time getting to know each other. Please pray for these people that the Holy Spirit will continue to enlighten and strengthen them in their love of Jesus Christ and his Church.
Legacy Giving: Our 150th Jubilee
Well into our Anniversary year celebrations, I think it’s time to pause and ask what is going to be our legacy? There is still much work to be done in building God’s kingdom here at St. Joseph’s. Take a look at the insert today and visit myplanwithcatholiccommunity.org/stjosephamherst where you can view and request educational materials and practical information to get you started. More information will follow in our upcoming newsletter: “On the Level”. You may also email email@example.com or call the Parish Office (440-988-2848) if you wish to speak with someone personally.
