As you may be aware, our parish family annually assists at least one ABODE family in their transition from the shelter to permanent housing. We recently provided the deposit & household goods for a family. As such, our fund for rental deposit/moving assistance and our supply of household goods is depleted. We are in particular need of small dining tables and chairs, chests of drawers, captain's beds (drawers under), trundle beds, bunk beds, twin and queen bed frames, linens, plate and bowl sets, and plastic glasses. Funds to provide deposit assistance and purchase new mattress sets and other necessary household items are also needed. If you are able to help, please call Helen Campbell at 795-7958. Checks can be made payable to St. Joseph Church with the memo line reading "Rehousing Assistance", placed in an envelope marked "Abode rehousing assistance" and placed in the Sunday collection or left at the Parish office. God bless you for your attention to our brothers and sisters in need!

Movable wall information
(75 reads)
As some of you may already be aware, our movable wall is not currently operating. We have had a technician come in and after inspection and his initial work he found that he has to do extended maintenance on it to get it operating again. Unfortunately, this will take some time to complete - approximately 4-6 weeks. Until then, and at the direction of Fr. Manny, we are not to move the wall from its current place - which is between the St. Vincent de Paul office door and the table and chairs storage room. We know many groups will be affected by this, but it is necessary to not have the wall moved from it's current location or touched until the maintenance is complete on this - this is for safety and to not disturb the maintenance already being performed on the wall. We ask that any groups that are affected try to work out a solution for your particular group until this is fixed. Please let Matthew in the Parish Office know if you need to reschedule an event because of this.

Thank you all for your understanding and assistance here at the Parish and for working with the Parish Office and one another.
