Archbishop Naumann will celebrate Mass and bless the renovations in our Church. This 11:00 am Mass will combine the regular 10:30 am and 12 noon Masses at St. Joseph Church. A reception will follow in McDevitt Hall downstairs.
On this fourth Sunday of Lent, the Church celebrates Laetare Sunday, characterized by the rose colored vestments of the priest who celebrates Mass. "Laetare" means "rejoice" in Latin -- how fitting that we at St. Joseph parish will celebrate the joyful occasion of the blessing of our renovated Church on this day!
