From the Pastor

St. Joseph

03-18-2018Fr. Don Kline, V.F.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Church will be celebrating the Solemnity of St. Joseph this Monday, March 19th. St. Joseph is known as the foster father of Jesus and the husband of Mary. Besides tomorrow’s feast, he is also honored on the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker on May 1.

My middle name is Joseph and I consider him to be my patron. It may be easy to forget about the humble man of God because of his few appearances throughout the Bible. But his special role in Jesus’ life can really be a great source of inspiration and strength for us. I ask for his intercession every day. I pray to him for those who need jobs, for the dying, (he is the patron of a happy death), for fathers and for purity.
