Spiritual Gift for Black Friday Spiritual Gift for Black Friday
Guide to Advent and Christmas 2020

With the arrival of Advent, the Parish Staff wanted to give you a spiritual gift to assist you and your family throughout these upcoming days. We have entitled our gift “St. Joseph Parish's Guide for Advent and Christmas 2020” and included several resources within it for you and your family. You can get a copy of it here. You may also feel free to share this among your family and friends. As we begin Advent, our entire Parish Staff continues to keep you in our prayers; please continue to keep us and our entire parish community in yours!



November Update from Father Joe November Update from Father Joe

Since our return to publicly-celebrated Masses, Father Joe continues to offer his Weekly Pastor's Column in our Sunday bulletin. He also writes a monthly update that is emailed to all registered parishioners. While as of November 20, we are making changes to our Parish Office Hours and not scheduling additional group meetings, our parish liturgical schedule continues as normally scheduled. Read Father Joe's November Update here! While bulletins are available at Mass, you can get them through the website (see the left menu) and our mobile app.  Let's continue to look after one another and keep each other in our prayers!

St. Joseph, pray for us!



Online Fair Trade Shopping Boutique Online Fair Trade Shopping Boutique
Now through Christmas

 OUR FAIR TRADE SHOPPING BOUTIQUE IS DIFFERENT THIS YEAR.  Please join us for the Fair Trade Shopping Boutique, but from the comfort of your own home. While we look forward to this annual event, COVID-19 makes it hard to host it and keep our distance, so we have update our Fair Trade page. You can view it here! Besides handicrafts and clothing, fair trade coffee, tea, and chocolates, perennial favorites, will be available. As always, supporting fair trade means supporting the artisans and small farmers who produce such wonderful products in economically and environmentally sound ways. Now you can shop locally (from home), while helping globally!




Giving Trees Giving Trees
A Little Different in 2020

It's that time of year again! Our annual "Sharing Tree" project kicks off November 14th. As with everything else this year, it will not look the same as in the past. Tables will be set up in the HFC, a separate table for each group. Most groups will NOT have specific tags, but rather a list of what they need. Tags WILL be available for the Strongsville Food Bank and our Lady of Christians. Both are requesting gift cards ONLY. 
For those unable to attend Mass but still wanting to help, please see the Sign-Up Genius link here. Your gift must be returned to the Parish no later than December 6th at Noon.
