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.
