Consecration to St. Joseph

As part of our Year of St. Joseph, the Parish is offering a Consecration to St. Joseph. What does a consecration mean? Simply put, it s a formal acknowledgement of St. Joseph as your spiritual father and your commitment  to pattern your life like his. 

Join us each day, February 15-March 19,  for this virtual program, where Fr. Paul will lead us in a 15 minute video of a reading and reflection. Open to men and women, each video is recorded posted online. Feel free to catch up here.

Fr. Michael is leading an interactive program for men only, via Zoom. Send your email address to him at frmichaelrevak@gmail.com in order to receive a Zoom invitation. Sessions will be held daily at 7 AM.

40 Days for Life: February 17- March 28

Want to have the perfect Lenten sacrifice this year? Just pray and fast for an end to abortion. Even better is to join other parishioners praying for one hour each Saturday morning during this 40 Days Spring Campaign, at Lawrenceville’s Planned Parenthood.

Come join others who sacrifice on one or more Saturday mornings during Lent (Feb 27, Mar 6,13, 20 and 27 )  to pray and be witnesses for life at the Planned Parenthood in Lawrenceville. (798 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Rd.) Transportation leaves from our St. Joseph parking area in front of the Parish Office as soon as our 8:30 Mass has concluded on each of these Saturdays.

If you missed seeing “Unplanned” when it was in theatres in Athens, a generous parishioner shared some DVDs of it that may be borrowed from our Parish Office. If ever you wondered what happens at a Planned Parenthood, Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director, exposes it all.

Facilitators Needed for VIRTUS

Under the Safe Environment guidelines, parishes are required to offer VIRTUS Classes for all persons working with children. We are in need of facilitators to lead these classes here at St. Joseph. Once trained, you are only required to facilitate a class four times a year at your convenience. Won’t you consider giving to our Parish in this special way?

Four training sessions have been scheduled for 2021 to train facilitators for VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children.  Simply pick the one you can attend.

The 2021 dates are as follows:

  • · April 30 and May 1
  • · July 20 and 21
  • · October 21 and 22
