ST. JOSEPHS HEALING MINISTRY     
In addition to the Anointing of the Sick, St. Joseph Church now offers a weekly Healing Ministry. This is a time set aside to bring restoration and wholeness to anyone in need of healing of body, mind, or spirit.    
IMAGO CHRISTI (in the Image of Christ) is an international healing ministry.
Offered every Monday evening at 5:30 pm in the Church

You are invited to come and pray for healing with us. Group prayer and specific individual healing sessions are available to all.   It is the promise of Jesus that, through Him, we are "to have life and to have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10).  Mark 16:17-18 says "these signs will follow those who believe... they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover!"   This is a special time of grace for individuals, couples, and families to ask Jesus for healing for our needs and supplications.  Let the power of the Holy Spirit fill and restore us with His love!   Whether or not you are seeking personal healing, you are welcome to join our Healing Ministry Team. Please call Alda and Jim St. James for more information.  The flyer for the Healing Ministry is here.

 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"The word of God came to John"

Do you recognize the voice of the Lord speaking to you when you listen to the word of God in Scripture? Luke the evangelist tells us that the "word of God came to John in the wilderness" (Luke 3:2). Who was John the Baptist and what is the significance of the word which he received and delivered to the people of his day? Luke tells us that John was the son of Zechariah, a priest who served in the temple at Jerusalem. John stood at a pivotal juncture in the history of God's dealing with his people. He bridged the Old and New Testaments, also known as the Old and New Covenants which God made with his people.       

*******************************************************************************************

2019 OFFERING ENVELOPES
The 2019 offertory envelopes are available for pickup at the back of the Church.  Please place your name and address on the envelopes for the first couple of weekends.  To assure credit to the appropriate account do not use prior year envelopes in 2019.  Inactive envelope numbers are reissued to other parishioners.   If you would like to receive 2019 offertory envelopes please stop by the parish office.
   
*******************************************************************************************

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT  
In today’s second reading, Saint Paul prays with joy and confidence for his friends in the Christian community at Philippi. He is encouraged that the community has partnered with him to proclaim the Gospel. He sees Christ’s active presence and plan of salvation at work  in the community. God’s overarching plan is unclear to us. But when we see evidence of God working through others, doesn’t it give us reason to hope that Christ is alive among us? Does the witness of others help our own prayer lives? Does it inspire us to be partners with others in promoting the Gospel? Food for thought in this second week of Advent.

*******************************************************************************************

QUIET HOLY HOUR
Have a few minutes to spend with The Good Shepherd?  Come to St. Joseph’s Church on Thursdays for Holy Hour at 5 to 6:30 p.m.   On Fridays come & join us to pray the Divine Mercy at 3 p.m. Holy Rosary will be held Monday—Fridays after the daily mass.    All are Welcome!  

*******************************************************************************************
WINTER COLD AND FLU SEASON
As always, you are reminded to use common sense in the reception of Holy Communion from the chalice during the annual cold and flu season. If you are feeling ill or think you may have been exposed to a virus, you should refrain from partaking of the Blood of Christ from the communal chalice. In the same way, you should refrain from offering your hand to others at the sign of peace. A smile and a heartfelt "Peace be with you" should suffice. Likewise if you are not comfortable sharing the sign of peace or receiving Holy Communion from the communal chalice for fear of infection, you should feel no pressure to do so. All of us must be aware of such sensitive matters in the intimate life of the Christian community and we should expect that some will refrain from the sign of peace and the communal chalice out of care for our well being and not out of unkindness or a lack of piety.
