ABORTION: An Oregon court recently decided that a woman has the right to kill frozen embryos as part of the property in a divorce settlement.  Commented a Catholic Medical Association physician, “It’s where the culture of death has led our society – through the courts – to truly devalue human life.”  The Southern Cross, November, 2008.


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.

ST JOSEPH’S MEAL SODALITY: A Meal Sodality is being formed here at St. Joseph’s for the purpose of providing meals to those who are elderly, sick, have just had a baby or who have just lost a loved one through death.  If you would like to volunteer to make meals, or drive them to someone in need, please talk to one of our volunteers in the vestibule after Mass this weekend.

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.

CATHOLIC MEDIA: We are proud to present a new Evangelical opportunity here at St. Joseph’s on March 21st and 22nd, Lighthouse Catholic Media.  It is a practical and effective program to help Catholics know their faith, keep their faith and share it.  It can help you reach family and friends who have fallen away from the church.  The CD’s are from the best Catholic speakers such as Fr. John Corapi, Archbishop Sheen, Matthew Kelly & Ann More.  Check it out.

CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICES collection will be next weekend.  The Bishop has asked us to remind you of this collection. This is one the best Catholic outreaches that we have. Please use the envelope in your envelope box and please be generous.

YOUNG ADULTS – 20’s – 30’s: Toledo area’s “Theology on Tap” will be held Thursday, March 12, 2009 at Spaghetti Warehouse, 42 South Superior, downtown Toledo, beginning with registration at 6:00 P.M. and presentation beginning at 6:30 P.M.  Topic: “Beyond and Wrong”  Speaker:  Fr. Adam Hertzfeld.

  Please pick up your baby bottle this weekend and return on the weekend of March 28th & 29th.
