On Sunday, January 21st, we celebrated our first mass in the newly remodeled church.  Msgr. Gerard O'Connor presided over the 5pm, 8:30am and 10:30am masses.

On Sunday, January 28th, Archbishop Sample led the dedication ceremonies at a special all-parish 10:00 am Mass.  The new church space overflowed with parishioners and visitors eager to participate in the blessing of the remodeled church and dedication of the new altar.  Con-celebrating with Archbishop Sample were Fr. Ted Prentice and Fr. John Amsberry.  Afterward, parishioners flowed into the remodeled social room for a luncheon and a celebratory slice of cake.  The day was filled with joyful emotion as the years-long planning, fundraising, building, and hard work on the part of the parish family reached its conclusion.  Though there are still details to be finalized, we are happy to worship in our long-awaited House of God, happy to be united again in one room, one elegant and sacred space.

If you want to contribute to the completion of our remodel, you can donate to the St. Joseph the Worker Capital Campaign, or you can purchase a personalized brick to enhance the prayer garden, the St. Joseph statue area, and the special space for the American Flag.  Bricks will be sold for $50 each after masses starting the weekend of February 3 & 4.
