ALL ADULTS OF THE PARISH are welcome to join us in the “Coffeehouse” after the 8:30am Mass. We invite all adults of the parish to enjoy coffee and refreshments followed by a presentation in Saint Joseph’s hall. Presenters and topics vary. At times we will have a series of talks and others we will offer a talk or discussion on a specific issue. In the fall, Father Byrd will offer a series on particulars of the liturgy.
Sunday October 1st
Fr. Byrd’s first lecture on the liturgy will look at the Scriptures and the Sacrifice of the Mass, and how the Mass fulfills the sacrifices of old.
Sunday October 15th
Fr. Byrd’s second lecture on the liturgy will look at the liturgical calendar, it’s purpose, and formation.
Sunday October 29th
Our pastor’s third lecture in this series will consider the Post Vatican II Reforms of the Mass.
We also invite ALL PARENTS of the parish to join us once a month to discuss approaching tough topics with your kids in today’s culture. This year in Parent Faith Formation we will use Pope Saint John Paul II’s work, Theology of the Body, to understand how to approach certain issues surrounding human dignity and sexuality with our kids. We will discuss isssues such as modesty, dating, gender dysphoria, and pornography. These are difficult but important conversations and we hope all parents of the parish will join us.
Sunday October 22nd
On the Feast of Pope Saint John Paul II we will begin our discussions on his work, Theology of the Body. This first session will simply introduce the purpose and overview of Theology of the Body. We will also introduce our topics and our hopes for the year.
