Reception to follow in the Parish Center

 Reprinted from the February 12, 2017 Parish Bulletin:

My Dear Parishioners,

 As I informed you all at last Sunday’s Masses, St. Joseph’s Parish has received the last permit needed to begin the construction of our addition to the church. I am excited to finally begin this project which will provide us with men’s and women’s handicapped-accessible bathrooms, a new liturgical vesting area, and a larger narthex.

Thank you for all of your support in making these much needed upgrades a reality. Thank you for your prayers, for your financial assistance, and for your faith and patience.  A special thank you is due to the members of our parish council and finance council, as well as our capital campaign committee.  Their hard work and dedication to St. Joseph’s made this happen.

 In particular I would like to extend my most heartfelt appreciation to Mr. Harry Shasho and Joyce Gentilo.  Harry worked tirelessly behind the scenes from the very beginning to make sure the project was done correctly; our parish benefited greatly from his knowledge and expertise with regard to permits, architecture, and construction costs. Joyce, through her countless volunteer hours in the careful recording of all the Capital Campaign contributions, saved our parish a considerable sum of money in administrative costs.

I have asked our contractor, Mr. Mike Mohler, to begin construction as soon as he is able.  However, I am exploring the possibility of having a ground-breaking ceremony for the parish before that happens.  Please also take a look at the materials board at the entrance of the church.  It shows a lighting design as well as proposed flooring and color schemes for the inside of the new addition.

 As always, if you have any questions or concerns please let me know. God bless you.        

Fr. Stokes
