St. Joseph’s 20th Annual Country Fair was a wonderful success! See pictures here. The Country Fair Committee thanks everyone who worked together to make our Fair the most successful ever! So many people gave generously of their time, talent and treasures–it was truly a remarkable and inspiring example of putting the Mission of our Parish into action, sharing the Gospel of Jesus with the community around us and nourishing our parish family through service. A special thank you goes to Ann Murphy, Sally Arnold, Betsy Mullineaux, and family for their many years creating thousands of items and making possible the very popular General Store. Thank you and may God bless you! ~Cindy Kindl and Michelle Close, Co-Chairs. To visit their webpage, click here. Or visit the Country Fair Facebook page and Facebook Event Page.
This weekend, you can still fill out a Stewardship commitment form and commit yourself to “rendering to God what is God’s” – remember that this offering is the thanksgiving for what God has blessed us with through the year. Thank you for your important support of our beloved parish. Your faithfulness, your prayers, your service, and the gifts you share that make it possible for our parish to bring Christ to the lives of others. Learn more about the plans for our parish mission at a Come Out and Hang Out gathering.
