The Gift of the Spirit
The season of Easter concluded, we now return to the liturgical season of Ordinary Time. However, this Sunday and next are designated as solemnities—special days that call our attention to central mysteries of our faith. This Sunday, we celebrate the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity, one God in three persons, and the reading of the Gospel of John calls our attention to the action of God, who revealed himself in the Son and continues to be with us in the Holy Spirit.
Congratulations Deacon Sergio!
¡Felicidades Diácono Sergio!
Chúc Mừng Thầy Phó Tế Sergio!

Exciting School News!
Tuition Assistance for New Families
Through a generous donation to the Catholic Education Foundation (CEF), tuition assistance is available to NEW families to our Catholic school system. The amount can be nearly 50% off the tuition amount. Please share this great news with families you know who hesitate to apply to St. Joseph the Worker School because of the cost of tuition.
Starting March 1st., we will be accepting Mass Intention Requests for the period April through June. You may download and print the Mass Intention Request form from our website or get one at the Parish Center. Complete the form and deliver or mail it to the Parish Center with your $10 per Mass donation. A check payable to St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church is preferred; cash is accepted (exact amount, please). There is a limit of four requests per family. We do not accept phone requests.
We are happy that we have continued to celebrate mass in our church building.
Please let your family and friends know that we would love to see them return if they have not yet done so.
We ask that you continue to sanitize your hands upon entering the church for the sake of safety for everyone.
We will continue to follow the State, County and Archdiocesan public health guidelines These are the Guidelines:

Now is the time to give online!
Electronic Giving (e-giving) is an easy, convenient way to support your parish. Click on "e-giving" at the top right corner of this page and follow the instructions. You have the option to set up your contributions on an ongoing basis or as a one-time donation.
