Masses are hosted by students of Saint Joseph School in Grades Kindergarten through 8 on the first Friday of each month of the school year at 9:00 a.m. beginning in September. Each grade has a turn to participate fully in the Mass preparation, selecting the readings from the Children's Lectionary and preparing the Prayers of the Faithful for their special Mass. Children from the grade hosting the monthly Mass also take up the gifts of bread and wine during the Offertory.
The parishioners are invited to join the school for these beautiful Masses and Fr. Ron Barker prepares his sermon so that all of the children can understand the day's Scripture readings. Our school also attends Mass with our parish on Holy Days throughout the school year. Celebrating Masses together enhances community spirit within our families of Saint Joseph Parish.
