Saturday Morning Bible Study

Bible Study

Saturday Morning Scripture Study at St. Joseph returned September 23, 2017, with the first of three studies from Paul’s letters. Come join us!

Paul’s letter to the Galatians speaks directly to the heart of Christians and addresses one of the most important questions we can ask: “What must we do to be saved?”
 
This fascinating letter reveals the merciful love that God the Father has for us, His children. In this new addition to The Great Adventure series, “GALATIANS: Set Free to Live”, learn what it means to have this filial relationship with God the Father, how He honors us as His children, and how we must honor Him as our loving Father.

Michael the Archangel Prayer Warriors

Prayer offered up at night possesses a great power, more than the prayer of  daytime...Isaac the Syrian

A nightly nighttime rendezvous with God in silence can and will become habit forming. The desire to meet the Lord in the silent darkness of the night will grow to the point that you will eventually find yourself carefully arranging your daily schedule so that you retire for the evening rest at the same time each night or as close to it as is possible. You will go about organizing your daytime schedule so that you will not be cheated out of your time with the Lord. 

You may find yourself needing less sleep. A number of the saints slept very little, but prayed incessantly. Certainly, the time for getting up for the regular night vigil will become easier as you intensify the practice. The alarm clock won’t be necessary. Just a word said to your Guardian Angel will suffice. There can be times when remaining awake might be challenging. This becomes much less of a challenge as time progresses. A slight rocking motion of the head or body can help one stay awake. Or you can change to another prayer format or change prayer posture.

As you gain more experience in getting out of bed and going to the place of prayer, you will notice your body’s temperature rising before even getting up, possibly to the point of sweating. This can aid a person in realizing the call to prayer has occurred, just as in the final minutes of prayer, you will notice the body cooling down, as it readies itself for sleep once again.

The nighttime silence is a powerful, silent elixir for the spirit. It might even be intoxicating. It also is a profound weapon against Satan and his ilk.

Music Ministry

Music MinistryMusic is integral to the celebration of any liturgical event.  Singing unifies and deepens our communal prayer.  Singing together, we become one body in Christ.

The gift of music is a treasure to be shared.  St. Joseph Music Ministries offers a wide variety of musical experiences for parishioners.  Whether you are interested in singing or are an instrumentalist of any kind, you can be sure that you will be joining a great group of people.

We invite you to join with us in making beautiful music for St. Joseph Church - it is an amazing vocation.  Any musical gift you have been blest with can be realized by joining one of our groups, whether it be one of the adult choirs or as an instrumentalist. 

Perhaps you have been thinking about joining one of the groups, but there has been that one thing holding you back.  Perhaps the choirs seem so close knit that you  feel you would be an "outsider" if you were to join.  Please be assured, one of our highest priorities is to foster a sense of community.  We love seeing new faces and welcoming them into our family.  I promise you will be put at ease at the very first rehearsal you attend. 

Perhaps you don't read music, so you think there is no way you could join.  Well...lots of our musicians don't read music!  Music is something that is heard, not seen.  In fact, music was being produced thousands and thousands of years before a single note was every written down.  Does an ability to read music help?  Yes, but it is not at all essential.  Please don't let this be the thing that holds you back.

If you feel you are too busy to make a commitment, you might be surprised at the kind of flexibility we can offer you.  If you are even somewhat curious about anything to do with music making at St. Joseph Church,

please contact the Director of Music Ministries: Jefferey A. Hall.

The Music Ministry at St. Joseph includes:

    *Cantors
    *Sunday Choir (8:30 AM Mass)
    *Contemporary Choir (11:00 AM Mass)
    *Handbell Choir
    *Music for Weddings and Funerals
    *Instrumentalists
