ADVENT SEASON MASS CARDS

CHILDREN'S CHRISTMAS PAGEANT

“Oh, Come Let Us Adore Him”. St Joseph’s is now taking sign-ups for the Christmas Pageant which will be held on Saturday, December 24th at 4:00pm. Sign-up sheets are in the vestibule. Fill out one sign-up sheet per child and leave it in the basket. Keep the section with the practice date and times. For any questions, please call the church office. 

GIVING TREE

Each Advent Season, our generous parishioners participate in the Giving Tree ministry. The Christians In Commerce ministry serves our parish families and community through this outreach effort. Again, this year, they are sponsoring the Giving Tree.  It is important that our parish continue to provide much needed gift cards for members of our community who may be experiencing financial hardships, preventing them from purchasing much needed resources. Please drop off your purchased gift cards (Visa, Safeway, Target cards are preferred) in the box in the vestibule at the Giving Tree or at the parish office.

CHRISTMAS APPEAL

Thank you to so many of you who have been kind and generous in your response to our Christmas letter and appeal. As promised, at all Christmas Masses, all returned envelopes will be placed in the offertory basket and brought forward with the offertory gifts with the intention offered for you and your families health, protection, and well-being in the year 2023.

NOTE TO SENIORS

If you are over age 72 and have a traditional retirement account (e.g. 401K, IRA) you are required to make annual taxable distributions to yourself, however if you are in the fortunate position of not needing all of your distribution for living expenses and are charitably inclined, you can avoid income tax on a portion of your RMD by donating that  portion directly to a qualified charity-- Saint Joseph Catholic Community is a qualified charity.

NOTE to parishioners of all ages --

Please consider naming Saint Joseph Catholic Community as a beneficiary in your will or trust ( for example 2% of your estate).
