The Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

From The Desk of Fr. Joseph

Dear Parishioners:

On this 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time we focus that together we are the body of Christ; in him we find our unity and purpose.
As people made in the image and likeness of God, we have an innate dignity that derives not from what we do or from our outward appearance but from our relationship with God.  Knowing this truth, it is no surprise that St. Paul chooses the image of the body to flesh out his theology of the baptized. For just as the body is made up of many parts, so, too, is the body of Christ, the Church.

Your brother in Christ

Father Joseph

Attention parishioners who currently have taken home the Holy Family (Coros Program), please be sure to bring it back to the sacristy on the Sunday after you received it so we can present it to another family at mass.  Thank You! 

Dear Parishioners,

The Capuchin Poor Clare Nuns have given that quiet contemplative witness in Pueblo for the past 21 years. Bishop Arthur Tafoya brought the Sisters to Pueblo to be that light and powerhouse of prayer. They presently live in their Monastery off Clark Street across the street from Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel Church.

St. Joseph Parish has donated 1.75 acre to the sisters to build a new Monastery for them that will house 12 Sisters. We are asking for donors to help with the building of this new Monastery to fulfill their dream. The enclosed flyer shows the old Monastery and the plans for the new Monastery. I am asking for your generous support for our Capuchin Poor Clare Nuns Monastery Fund.

Please see the flyer below. May God Bless you for your generous donation.

Your brother in Christ

I invite you to join me, in availing your heart to the graces of Christ, by making the act of Spiritual Communion.
Let us pray ...
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.

O Sacrament most holy,
O Sacrament divine! All praise
and all thanksgiving be
every moment Thine! (three times)

O God of compassion,
your people are anxious
in this time of pandemic.
Send your Holy Spirit among us
to dispel our fears.
We cry out to you in our confusion;
comfort us in our affliction.
Grant our leaders wisdom to guide us.
Strengthen and sustain those who are ill,
and be with those who care for them.
Help us to travel this road
in solidarity with our neighbors,
with our eyes fixed on the salvation promised us
through the death and resurrection of your Son,
who is Lord forever and ever.
