Dear Parishioners,

We have all been there. We have walked in the glory of Palm Sunday only to be confronted with the toil of Calvary. More than anyone, Christ understands our highs and lows. Throughout this Lenten journey, we have struggled and sacrificed alongside our Lord. Fasting, almsgiving, and penance have been our preparations for the joyous feast of Easter. By joining our sorrows to the cross, we allowed Christ to be our strength so that we may celebrate with Him on Easter Sunday.

To help you on your journey, there are additional times for Mass, Penance, and Eucharistic Adoration. Please continue to prepare for Easter by attending one or more of these special opportunities.

In Christ,

Fr. Frank, Fr. Rick, Fr. George and Staff

"St. Joseph's Parish celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in 1943. The occasion was marked by the publication of the Diamond Jubilee Journal, but the joy of the parishioners was marred because of World War II, with many parish sons in battle across the Atlantic and Pacific and the restrictions at home in their severest and most critical stage."

"For fifty years, the red brick schoolhouse across the street has been the religious training center of this parish. Thousands of young men and young ladies have come to it and learned of Christ and His great redeeming love for us. They have gone out from it to bring Christ into the homes, and streets and offices of Kingston, in fact they brought the message of God's love to all they met. Please God, all the children who go out from this new school, will go out filled with that same love of God and country and fulfill the purpose of every Catholic school."

"The school building rose and was completed as planned; it was opened for use in September; but Monsignor Connelly died on October 8, 1963. St. Joseph's parishioners, young and old, mourned the death of a dear friend, a dedicated pastor and a devoted father. In the sadness of genuine loss, the parishioners awaited the assignment of a new pastor until December, 1963."
