Welcome to St. Joseph Catholic Church's
Eucharistic Revival: Parish Year
The Eucharist is the heart of the Church. Where Eucharistic life flourishes, there the life of the church will blossom.
POPE SAINT JOHN PAUL II
The Year of Parish Revival
The second phase will foster eucharistic devotion at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through eucharistic adoration, missions, resources, preaching, and organic movements of the Holy Spirit. These local efforts will help convert hearts and minds to fall more deeply in love with Jesus Christ, truly present in the Holy Eucharist.
As we enter The Year of Parish Revival, we encourage you to attend different Masses and events at our other Parishes, St. Anthony's in Angola and St. Paul's Chapel in Fremont.

Parish Agape Event: Episode 1
Visit www.formed.org Parish Code: F7J9JF Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist God Is with Us | Presence | Episode 1 Episode 1 • 35m 177 comments When is the last time you sat down to enjoy a meal with your family or close friends—not just to eat food in close proximity to each other, but to bask in each other's presence and grow in love for one another? For most of us, this doesn't happen at a typical meal. But this is the kind of meal God wants to share with us. This is the kind of meal he has prepared for us and invites us to participate in through the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
Every month the Lord invites us to come for an hour to thank Him for our many blessings, honor Him in all his glory, share our troubles and our joys, or simply rest in His Presence. It is an opportunity to find oneself for it is so easy to get lost in this world.

Exposition of Eucharistic Miracles
Countless miracles attributed to the Eucharist have happened around the world but most times went unnoticed until a 14-year-old tech savvy boy, Blessed Carlos Acutis dying with Leukemia took it upon himself to document and publish a record of the miracles. His exhibition which has appeared around the world, is designed to bring them to light and is guaranteed to leave us speechless and in awe of God’s greatest gift to us…himself, fully present in the Eucharist.

Catechist Spiritual Formation Day
What greater honor can one bestow than to give another the title shared by Christ himself…Teacher! All catechists are invited to come and renew the Spirit so necessary to imaging Christ to those they serve. It is an opportunity to be filled with Christ’s love and deepen their understanding of God’s greatest gift to us so they too can proudly be called teacher!

Parish Agape Event: Episode 3
Visit www.formed.org Parish Code: F7J9JF Food is one of our most basic needs. We can't live for long without it, and when we are in need of it, our bodies let us know with a hunger that can be nearly impossible to ignore. As indispensable as material food is to our physical life, the Eucharist is even more vital to our spiritual life. God saved the Israelites from starvation in the wilderness by providing manna for them. We need the Eucharist even more than the Israelites needed the manna. It sustains and strengthens us for our life's journey. It is, as Monsignor Ronald Knox once said, "the day's food for the day's march."
October 1, 2023
On this day, after Mass, amid song and adoration, the priest will introduce the children, many for the first time, to the real presence of God in the Eucharist. Following adoration the children will return to their classrooms to discuss the topic more fully and individually with their catechist.

Men's Rosary, Adoration Benediction & Fellowship
Is it the beads that scare you? They are but a tool to guide both male and female as they contemplate the mysteries that are meditated upon while praying each decade. The rosary can be the secret in your pocket that leads you on the path to God and surely, we all need a road map!

Parish Agape Event: Episode 2
Visit www.formed.org Parish Code: F7J9JF God is the Master Storyteller. He authors His great love story not only with words, but with deeds. All of God's mighty deeds throughout history make up one beautiful narrative of salvation, which culminates in the Paschal Mystery. Jesus's teachings and actions throughout his ministry prepare for the moment he offers himself for, and to, each of us, fullling his promise that "My flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed" (John 6:55).

Women's Rosary, Adoration, Benediction & Fellowship
Probability is that every child raised in a Catholic household had a grandmother who prayed the Rosary. A wise woman was that grandmother for she knew the power of that prayer. Our Lady of Fatima asked the children to pray the rosary for peace in the world. A message as important today as it has been throughout history, perhaps more. Imagine the power of joining with other women for this evening of prayer, adoration and fellowship.
