St. Joseph’s Masses Move to Gym at St. Brigid School
We are moving the 7:30 am and 5:00 pm Sunday Masses from St. Joseph Church to the Craig & Dolly Foster Gymnasium at St. Brigid School for the winter beginning on January 8th.
These winter quarters are possible because of the beautiful response from parishioners. Many thanks to the Spirit-filled parishioners who have volunteered to set up folding chairs on Saturday afternoons in the gym. The schedule is full and folks have been notified of their assignments – as well as given contact information for alternates, should their availability change.
Upon the advice of the Parish Pastoral and Finance Councils, we are making this move because the parish continues to fall short of funds needed to cover day-to-day operations. The increase in fuel costs have made this problem more urgent — St. Joseph Church consumes an inordinate amount of fuel and is still not warm for Mass. So, we compromise with this solution.
All other liturgical services will be held at St. Pius X during this time frame.
We plan to return to St. Joseph Church for Mass beginning on Easter Weekend (April 8-9). Though it will still be chilly, the worst of the winter low temperatures will be behind us when we return for The Great Easter Vigil.
We appreciate your understanding and ongoing support of our ministries.
