Dear St. Joseph Parishioners,
Some of you have asked me about my Father’s health. He has been in the hospital for two weeks but seems to be recovering. His Alzheimer’s has continued to progress to the point he is unaware of what is going on around him. It has been two years since I have gone home so I am going to go in January. Given COVID I will have to quarantine in New Zealand for 14 days upon arrival. A Legionary priest will come and take my place during this time. Thanks for your prayers.
The prayer for this week is one we are very familiar with. The prayer we say after meals -
“And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.”
