IS ST. JOSEPH PARISH IN YOUR WILL?

ABORTION: “The Christian tradition from the earliest days reveals a firm antiabortion attitude.  From apostolic times, the Christian tradition overwhelmingly held that abortion was grievously evil.”  Charles Chaput, OFM.Cap., Archbishop of Denver
Suggested Prayer: That we may have the eyes to see the intrinsic value of every human life regardless of age or size or health, we pray.

A FAMILY PERSPECTIVE: Today’s gospel teaches:  ‘Whoever loves his life, loses it.”  Letting go and death to self are keys to successful relationships.  If we hold-onto another too tightly, we smother them.  Unless we die to ourselves, we use others for our needs.  Hear Jesus today: “If the grain of wheat dies, there is much fruit.”  Family life and relationships require sacrifice.

ST. JOSEPH’S FIRST COMMUNION: Deadline is March 31st. If you haven’t already, please call the office if your child is going to make their First Communion this May 10th.

ST. JOSEPH’S MEAL SODALITY: Thank You to all of those who signed up to be Mary’s Helpers to parishioners who are in need of meals, whether it be for the birth of a new baby, the death of a loved one, or because one is elderly or handicapped or recently been in the hospital.  We presently have 28 parishioners assisting us in preparing meals at given times, but we are still in need of volunteer drivers to take meals to the requesting family (this service is not needed on every occasion).  Please let Kathy Williams (419-877-0392, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or Lisa Baldwin ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) know if you would be interested in helping in this way or by assisting with a meal.  Also, if you would like to request a meal(s), please notify Joyce Zielinski in the parish office.

LIGHTHOUSE CATHOLIC MEDIA: Many of us don’t have the time to go to Bible Study or an Adult Education class, but now we can keep learning and growing in our faith wherever we are.  The CD’s available in the back of church are only $3.00 per CD.  What a simple and inexpensive way to turn your car or van into a chapel, your gym into a classroom, or your home into a place where you fall in love with God.

HEARTBEAT OF TOLEDO: Please your return your Baby Bottles this weekend.

RED ENVELOPES: You may have noticed the Red Envelopes on the back radiators by the bulletins.  Just put a stamp on one and mail.  Explanation is on the envelope.  Let’s be heard.

STAND AND PRAY -- LENT 2009: Take your Lenten prayer and fasting to a new level this year by joining others in peaceful prayer outside Center for Choice, 328 22nd St., Toledo, from Ash Wednesday through Good Friday.  Come and pray any time it’s convenient to you, but the most helpful times are:  Mon., Tues., & Wed: 8am-5pm; Thurs: 2-10pm; Fri: 8am-1pm.  For more info contact Ann at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

IS ST. JOSEPH PARISH IN YOUR WILL?

ABORTION: The prominent Lutheran pastor Dietrich Bobhoeffer clearly described the act of abortion:  “The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life.  And that is nothing but murder.”
Suggested Prayer: That this nation may heed the words of those who speak about the humanity of the unborn, we pray.

A FAMILY PERSPECTIVE: Notice in today’s gospel:  “God so loved us, He GAVE his Son.”  Love is about GIVING, not getting!  Love is not selfish.  Lovers are givers with no strings attached.

ST. JOSEPH’S FIRST COMMUNION: We are fast approaching our First Communion weekend of May 10th.  Please review the First Communion policy already published to make sure you cover all the details regarding baptismal certificates and the letter explaining your child’s preparation.  Please contact Joyce Zielinski at the parish office no later than the end of March to let us know that you have a child who will be receiving First Communion, and to tell us which Mass that weekend you will be attending.  Finally, please confirm that you will be able to attend the brief retreat the prior morning.

ATTENTION GIRLS OF ST. JOSEPH’S PARISH: Totus Tuus Maria is a girls group that has formed with the approval of Fr. Poggemeyer. Any girls that have received their First Communion or older are welcome to join us in serving Our Lord and our parish community. For more information please contact Jenny Maxon at 419-385-5984 or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

LIGHTHOUSE CATHOLIC MEDIA IS HERE!!: We are excited to announce that the CD program by Lighthouse Catholic Media is now available in the back of church.  These CD’s retail for $6.95, but we are asking for just a $3.00 donation for each of these life changing CD’s.  Some of the speakers you may recognize include Mother Theresa, Pope Benedict XVI, and Dr. Peter Kreft.  Please stop by and look at the CD’s and brochures.  Find out about the CD of the month.

HEARTBEAT OF TOLEDO: Please your return your Baby Bottles on the weekend of March 28th & 29th.

TWO YOUNG MEN’S RETREATS organized and directed by Fr. Adam Hertzfeld and Toledo seminarians.  The retreats are for the purpose of helping young men to get away to get some solid prayer and spiritual talks.  They are not necessarily for men who think they will be priests, but rather have the goal of helping young men draw closer to Jesus and grow in their desire to follow Him, wherever it is that He leads them vocationally.  The retreats will include Mass and Confessions, as well as plenty of food and some sports.  Some logistics still have to be worked out, especially the places solidified.  The retreat for young men in grades 6-8 will be July 10-12 (Friday evening through Sunday morning).  The retreat for men in grades 9-12 will by June 26-28.

IS ST. JOSEPH PARISH IN YOUR WILL?

ABORTION: “To claim the right to abortion, infanticide and euthanasia, and to recognize that right in law, means to attribute to human freedom a perverse and evil significance; that of an absolute power over others and against others.”
Suggested prayer: That families facing an untimely pregnancy may turn to God for help and strength, we pray.

MISSION AWARENESS WEEKEND: This weekend is our annual mission appeal for the work of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.  Deacon David Jordan,  representing the Office of Global  Concerns, is here this weekend.  “Go to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples:  Baptize them…, Teach them… And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”  We have all been commissioned by Jesus to bring his gospel to everyone, but for many the great commission is more “the great omission”, because we just don’t do it.  Let’s join in the mission of Jesus by becoming members of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! TWO YOUNG MEN’S RETREATS are being organized and directed by Fr.

HEARTBEAT OF TOLEDO a pro-life pregnancy center, is once again sponsoring its “Change for Changing Lives of Mothers and Babies” baby bottle campaign.  Please start gathering that loose change from home and car, relatives and friends, and pick up a baby bottle after Mass on the weekend of March 14th and 15th.

STAND & PRAY - Lent 2009: Take your Lenten prayer and fasting to a new level this year by joining others in peaceful prayer outside Center for Choice, 328 22nd St., Toledo, from Ash Wednesday through Good Friday.  Come and pray any time it’s convenient to you, but the most helpful times are: Mon., Tues. & Wed. 8a.m -5p.m; Thurs. 2-10p.m.; Fri. 8a.m.-1p.m.  For more information, contact Ann at 419-708-9497 or visit www.prolifeconnection.com.

IS ST. JOSEPH PARISH IN YOUR WILL?

ABORTION: “One day…our nation will…look back on what we have been doing to innocent human beings within their mothers as a crime no less heinous that what was approved by the Supreme Court in the ‘Dred Scott case’ in the 19th century, and no less heinous than what was perpetrated by Hitler and Stalin in the 20th.”  Cardinal Edward Egan in Catholic New York,  October 23, 2008.
Suggested prayer: For a greater commitment to the defense of innocent human life, we pray.

ST JOSEPH MEAL SODALITY BEING FORMED: A group of parishioners, with Fr. Poggemeyer’s support and enthusiasm, is forming a sodality whose purpose will be to provide meals for those who are suffering from illness, bereavement, or who have just had a new baby.  If you are interested in joining our effort in this much needed parish endeavor, please join us on Monday, March 2, 2009 at 7:00p.m. at Panera Bread on Central Avenue.  We will be discussing a name for the Sodality and how to organize the “how to’s”.  Bring your ideas and organizational experience with you…the more, the better!  For more information, please contact Kathy Williams at 419-877-0392 or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
