CHRISTMAS ASSISTANCE FOR FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS

TAKING DONATIONS TO HELP SUPPORT THOSE IN NEED

GIVING TO FAMILIES IN NEED THIS CHRISTMAS
This year, we will be distributing gift cards to parish families in hardship. If you would like to make a donation to for this project,
you will find special envelopes in the narthex.

 
If you know of a family who cannot afford to provide their children with presents and/or who will need help with Christmas dinner, please complete the form found in the narthex and place it in the Offertory box, drop it in the office mail slot at any time, or bring it to the parish office during business hours (M, T, W 9-4). Please print clearly.  Priority will be given to individuals and families who are members of St. Joseph the Worker but all will do everything we can to include everyone.  
ALL APPLICATIONS AND DONATIONS NEED TO BE IN

If you have any questions, please contact Terri at the parish office: 503-761-8710 x1303 or sjtwadmin@comcast.net

ARCHBISHOP SAMPLE TO VISIT SJTW AND OTHER PARISHES

ARRAIVING AT SJTW WEDNESDAY, NOV 3

Archbishop Sample During Homily (3)

In an effort to reach out to his flock, Archbishop Sample will be scheduling visits with pastors, staff, and parishioners of all parishes in the archdiocese. 

 He plans to visit St. Joseph the Worker on November 30th when he will meet with Fr. Ted and staff, attend Holy Hour with our area vicariate at St. Therese, and then hold a Town Hall Meeting at 6:30pm at St. Therese. All members of our parish are invited to attend. If you can’t make that Town Hall Meeting, you can also attend the 3:00pm Meeting at St. Henry’s on December 4th.

 We are all encouraged to submit questions or concerns to be aired in categories at the Town Hall Meetings. (Our categories of questions will be addressed at the November 30th meeting.) To submit your question/concern, email Terri at sjtwadmin@comcast.net. Or, place them in the Offertory Box. They may be submitted anonymously if you choose.

SJTW HOLIDAY BAZAAR

JOY AND FUN

The howling rains let up enough to bring in the shoppers at St. Joseph the Worker's Annual Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 5 and Sunday, Nov. 6.  Vendors from all over our area displayed their hand-made crafts while the Altar Guild also added a home-made goods table and sold pastries, cookies, candies, and more, all made in the kitchens of guild members.  The Vietnamese Community also made special cultural treats which they sold as well, sharing their proceeds with the guild.  Raffle tickets for sumptuous baskets were sold, and the  50/50 raffle brought in lots of competitors.

Everyone enjoyed the day and the best part is that all proceeds go to assist the Altar Guild in supplying the church with altar linens, banners, seasonal decorations, altar wine, hosts, candles, floral arrangements and so much more.  

Suzanne And Gianna Belatti Bazaar 2022

Suzanne Belatti and her daughter, Gianna manage the raffle table together.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a huge success, especially Susan Johnson, Bazaar organizer who wants us to know she could not have done it without all the help of Jodie Rossi, Altar Guild president, and the many, many volunteers who stepped up do their part.  She especially wants to thank to Kathi Nordlund for her diligent and efficient work at the Bake Sale table and for donating so many wonderful baked goods. She worked Friday, Saturday and Sunday straight. 

Our parish is truly blessed with generous and helpful people.
