Dear Parishioners of Saint Joseph,
As you are all aware, our Pastor, Father Steven, has been battling cancer. Over several months, Father has been ill and nauseous as a result of his cancer and treatments. Father wants you to know how much he has depended upon your love, prayers and support, and your generous care for him. On Thursday, September 8, he traveled to Arizona for further treatment at the Mayo Clinic. Please join Archbishop Aquila, all the priests and deacons of the Archdiocese plus our staff in praying for Father Steven.
Be assured that the day-to-day life of the parish will continue. Father Joe Hartmann, our Parochial Vicar, will be responsible for the pastoral leadership in the parish in this time of Father Steven’s absence. He will be assisted by a very capable parish and school staff.
Have a great weekend. 🙂
