The following booths are in need of chairpersons:
*Hunger Game (winners will receive unique toy prizes instead of food)
* Kids Korner Game Tent (there will be NO children’s games if we don't have a chairperson for these games)
* A chairperson is needed for Clean-up.
The festival committee is looking for new families to become involved in making this year's festival a success. There were many new additions to the festival last year, and we hope to be able to bring those back this year. If you are currently a chairperson, invite a new family to be part of your team of workers. If you do not want to be a chairperson for a booth, please consider volunteering your time at one of the food or game booths. Help is always welcome!
If you have not been part of the festival in the past, please consider making a commitment to your parish. You will not only be helping out your parish, but you will be spending quality time with your family, getting to know more people in the parish, and being rewarded with a meaningful feeling of value and worth at the end of a successful weekend.
Stuffed animals and matchbox cars are still being collected for prizes at the Festival. There is a box located in the vestibule of the church for you to place these toys in. Thank you to all who have already donated these items.
This week we received the update on St. Joseph Parish response to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal. This is very positive. Our goal is $33,200. The amount given and pledged at this point is $40,761. The adults
responding is approximately the same number as the envelopes we have returned every Sunday. This is 34% of the number of parishioner families we have listed in our register. If you have not already
contributed from your family, there are envelopes to make this contribution at the back of church. Thank you for your great generosity to the Bishop’s Appeal which serves the Catholic Charities of our area.
