ABORTION: When does a human life begin?  When is there a new living organism of the human species, distinct from mother and father and ready to develop and mature is given a nurturing environment?  While ancient thinkers had little verifiable knowledge to help them answer this question, today the science of embryology confirms beyond a doubt that a new human life begins at conception.
Suggested prayer: For all women who carry within them the precious gift of life, we pray.

A FAMILY PERSPECTIVE: It must have been difficult for Zebedee to watch his own sons walk away and follow Jesus.  It was the end of  ‘Zebedee and Sons Fishing Inc.’ and he surely enjoyed working each day alongside his boys.  Our children are never ours.  They are only on loan to us.  We raise them to let them go.

ST. JOSEPH’S WEBSITE: Check out our new website at It is only in its beginning stages, but already quite promising and useful. We will be developing it slowly to make it a tool for everybody in the parish, staff and parishioners alike! The website vision? Resources for reception of first sacraments and other religious education for youth and adults; excerpts from Sunday homilies, in text and perhaps streaming audio; sacraments information; photographs of important celebrations; significant links for Catholics; Latin and English Mass prayers in preparation for and after Mass, in text and streamed audio for Latin; prayers at the foot of the altar, in text and streamed audio for Latin (especially for altar servers’ practice); electronic bulletin and more.

WORD OF LIFE: "If the election is misinterpreted ideologically as a referendum on abortion, the unity desired by President-elect Obama and all Americans at this moment of crisis will be impossible to achieve.  Abortion kills not only unborn children; it destroys constitutional order and the common good, which is assured only when the life of every human being is legally protected.  Aggressively pro-abortion policies, legislation and executive orders will permanently alienate tens of millions of Americans, and would be seen by many as an attack on the free exercise of their religion."

FOCA POSTCARDS: FOCA postcards are available on the back radiators. If you did not receive one last weekend, please take a strip and send them to our Senators and Representative. Our Senators are Sherrod Brown and George Voinovich and our Representative is Marcy Kaptur.

LITTLE SISTERS OF THE POOR are here this weekend to ask for your help.  They  come here once a year and in past years you have always been generous.  We ask again that this year you be generous and come to the Little Sisters aid.  The sisters will speak after Holy Communion at each Mass.

MASS FOR SHUT-IN’S: Fr. Poggemeyer will be the celebrant for the Mass for Shut In’s February 1st and 8th,  WTOL TV,  Channel 11, at  11:00 A.M.

IRS STATEMENTS are now available. Write IRS on the FRONT of your envelope and one will be sent to you that week.
