Advent Evening of Music & Reflection

Begin Advent with a Marian-themed evening of Music, Reflection, and a celebration of our Catholic Faith. Julie Carrick, celebrated Catholic recording artist, speaker, and radio producer, will bring her Advent event “Mother Lend Me Your Heart” to St Joseph Parish on Sunday, December 3rd. Julie draws from a variety of sources for inspiration, but this event is particularly influenced by Fr Michael Gaitley’s ’33 Days to Morning Glory’ program.

There will be a potluck at 6 p.m. (immediately following the 5 p.m. Mass) in Meredith Hall.

Concert and reflections will follow at 7 p.m. in the Church. There will be a free-will offering taken up near the end of the night.

See You December 3rd!

Remember beloved deceased with Novena starting All Souls Day

All Souls - novena starts Nov 2 - 2017 - LPI graphic - St. Joseph Catholic Church - Ft. Collins - CO 80521Please join us in remembering deceased loved ones with our Novena of Masses beginning Thursday, November 2.

Novena Mass Cards are available at the church entrances, and help provide names of the deceased for our altar display in November. We also pray for the deceased at the Novena of Masses.

All Souls Day: Photos of loved ones at Shrine for the Dead

We invite you to bring a photo of your loved one for the Shrine for the Dead, a photo display of deceased members of our parish family. You may submit pictures via email to Jeanette Coleman or drop them off at the Parish Center marked with your name and contact information.

We will scan your photos, print them, place them at the shrine and return the original to you. If you bring a copy we can keep, please let us know when you drop it off.

The Book of the Dead starts in a spot by the Baptismal Font November 1st and 2nd, and then moves to the Shrine for the rest of the month. We will enter the names of our parishioners who have died this past year. You are also welcome to enter names of your deceased loved ones in the Book of the Dead. Thank you.

The theological basis for the feast is the doctrine that the souls which, on departing from the body are not perfectly cleansed from venial sins, or have not fully atoned for past transgressions, are debarred from the Beatific Vision, and that the faithful on earth can help them by prayers, almsgiving and especially the sacrifice of the Mass.
