Merry Christmas! The Season is upon us in which we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The priests, deacon, sisters, and parish staff wish you a joy-filled, peaceful and loving Christmas Season. I personally want to welcome all of our visitors to our parish at this time of year. Please know that you are always welcome. At this time of year, the Lord calls people to the Church who may have gone astray. Know that you too are welcome and if there is anything we can do for you here at St. Joan of Arc to help you participate more fully in the life of the Church we will do it! The gift of faith is a precious one and, whether that faith is strong or weak, the Church is here to assist you in coming to know and love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ, whose birth we celebrate today. May God bless you and all our parishioners during this special time of year!
Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

On Monday, December 19th we will be decorating the Church for Christmas. Decorating will take place following the 9:00am Mass and at 7:00pm that evening. All help is welcomed and needed.

Saint Joseph can help us to live a most fruitful Advent, and for many reasons. Let us quietly meditate upon five extraordinary virtues of this greatest of all saints so that we can live a most fervent Advent season and allow Jesus to be born in the depths of our hearts this Christmas!
