From The Pastor

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

Today, our Church is celebrating the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Here at St. Joseph, we are also celebrating the Feast of St. Peter Claver. He is the patronal saint of the Knights of Peter Claver and the Ladies Auxiliary. We are also celebrating Grandparent’s Day and our monthly Senior Luncheon.

Today, at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in Norwood (4:00 p.m.), we will be celebrating the closing Mass for the Men’s Weekend. All are invited.

We have much to celebrate here at St. Joseph Church.

Today, we are taking up a special collection for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Please make all checks payable to St. Joseph Church. On the memo line please write: For Victims of Hurricane Harvey. These funds will then be sent to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. They in turn will then send one large check to Catholic Relief Services from all the people of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

We have also been in contact with six families in Houston, Texas, with ties to St. Joseph Church. Let us keep the people of Texas and Florida in our prayers.

Our R.C.I.A Team is in the process of being formed. Ms. Saundra Willingham has come forward to coordinate this effort. Let us keep this effort in our prayers.

Invitations for new and former Liturgical Ministers are being made. There are signup sheets in St. Ann Chapel or you may call and leave your name and phone number in the Rectory.

Focus of the readings today: There is much riding on our ability to follow Jesus’ instructions for salvation.

Let us keep each other in our prayers.

Father Rey,

Pastor

Rites of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

Back in the old days (pre-Vatican II) anyone interested in becoming Catholic met with the priest individually for six months to a year studying Catholic doctrine and practices, rules and traditions, after which he or she received the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism,

Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist. Since, the late 60s, however, this process usually occurs in a group setting. It includes, various liturgical ceremonies, that occur not in private – as in the past – but in public liturgical ceremonies: Rites of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). It usually takes a year – more or less depending upon individual circumstances.

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the process by which both unbaptized adults and those baptized in other Christian denominations learn about the Catholic faith and way of life. It is a spiritual formation process culminating with entry into the Catholic Church. All it takes is a question. Are you interested in creating/strengthening your personal relationship with Jesus?

Contact Mrs. Saundra Willingham at 513 381-4526. Classes are being formed NOW!

TWENTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME SEPTEMBER 10, 2017


Prayer for Vocations

Almighty Father, You have created for us some definite purpose. Grant us the grace to know the path You have planned for us in this life and to respond with a generous “Yes.” Make our archdiocese, parishes, homes and hearts fruitful ground for Your gift of vocations. May our young people respond to Your call with courage and zeal. Stir among our men a desire and the strength to be good and holy priests. Bless us with consecrated religious and those called to a chaste single life, permanent deacons, and faithful husbands and wives, who are a sign of Christ’s love for His Church. We commend our prayer for vocations to You, Father, through the intercession of Mary our Mother, in the Holy Spirit, through Christ our Lord. Amen. – Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr

Father of goodness and love, hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need. Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in Your healing presence. Show your mercy as You close wounds,

cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free downcast spirits. May these special people find lasting health and deliverance, and so join us in thanking You for all your gifts. We ask this through the Lord Jesus who healed those who believed. Amen.
