When we all gather in St. Joseph’s Gym.
Some warm chili we get to taste,
And we will leave none to waste.
A winner shall be crowned at the end of the night,
For chili that is out of sight.
So please come to support St. Joseph sports,
A good time to spend with all your cohorts!

Praying that we will recognize the many blessing showered upon us in 2019! Another resolution for the New Year would be to stop by the Lighthouse Kiosk AT LEAST once a month and pick up a book or CD! The book selection for January is Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton. A convert to Catholicism, he was one of the most popular and prolific writers in the twentieth century. Known today as the "apostle of common sense," Orthodoxy describes Chesterton's high adventure of discovering the ONE who is Goodness, Truth, and Beauty itself. In the talk, 13 Reasons Why You Matter, Noelle Garcia discusses the difficult subjects of suicide, depression, self-harm and loneliness. Speaking with honesty, humor and personal experience, she tackles these issues head-on, encouraging those who are struggling (or know someone who is) that God's mercy and love are waiting for them; that you and your life, truly matter. If you have any questions or suggestions, call Leona Steinhilber at 265-8375.
