The second part of Ordinary Time begins after the Easter Season, on the Monday after Pentecost, and ends on the Saturday before the First Sunday of Advent and is devoted to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects. This Season's focus is the Holy Spirit in the Millennium, the Church Age that we now live in, and Christ's Reign as King of Kings -- the time between the Age of the Apostles and the Age to Come.
Br. James-Peter Trares' Home Visit
The parish welcomed Br. James-Peter home as he preached at Masses June 11/12. Serving as deacon for the first time in his home parish, the chalice given to him by Bernice Heritage was used. It was given to her by the K of C through the Memorial Chalice Program for her husband, Austin, a 4th degree Knight of Columbus, who passed away January 1, 2016. Br. James-Peter would like to express his heartfelt appreciation in accepting this honor. Austin will be remembered in every Mass in which the chalice is used in Br. James-Peter’s ministry.
Recycling Collection Bins at St. Joseph's
Keep used household items out of landfills. Bring your old printer cartridges, cell phones, computer accessories, compact fluorescent lightbulbs, and batteries (all but non-rechargeable alkaline) to the Narthex and place them in the recycling collection bins. Bins will be set up for collection beginning on May 28 and periodically taken to recycling facilities. See the collection bin signage or contact Emma Kennedy (330-703-0677) for more information. A recycling collection date for larger household items will be scheduled in the future.
