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.
