Welcome Friends in Christ!
 
 
Dear Parishioners and Prospective Parishioners,
interiorchristmas
Welcome to our parish website.  We hope the information on these pages is helpful to you in finding your place at St. Joan of Arc and that your spiritual needs may be fulfilled.  Our parish is very active in many ways both spiritual and material.  As well as having opportunities for spiritual growth for all ages, we also encourage the participation of the whole family in worship and growth.  Our parish is deeply involved in the practice of Stewardship.  This means that we believe that all our time, talents and treasures are truly gifts from God and are given to us to be shared to build up God's Kingdom here on earth.  So, if you are interested in a parish where people are involved, you have come to the right place.  We heartily welcome you and hope that if there is anything we can do for you that you will not hesitate to call.

Stewardship Thought for December 9, 2018
Second Sunday of Advent 
 
“And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception, to discern what is of value…”  (PHILIPPIANS 1:9-10)
Glittery holiday ads can blind us to our stewardship values and distort our needs and wants.  It is important that during this season of endless buying we remember that each of us also has the need to give back to God and to those that are in need.

Prayer To Know One's Vocation
 
Lord, my God and my loving Father, you have made me to know you, to love you, to serve you, and thereby to find and to fulfill my deepest longings.  I know that you are in all things, and that every path can lead me to you.
 
But of them all, there is one especially by which you want me to come to you.  Since I will do what you want of me, I pray you, send your Holy Spirit to me: into my mind, to show me what you want of me; into my heart, to give me the determination to do it, and to do it with all my love, with all my mind, and with all of my strength right to the end.  Jesus, I trust in you.  Amen

SUPPORT FOR THE HOLY LAND
 
Pope Francis has asked our parish to support the Christians in the Holy Land. Your support helps the church minister in parishes, provide Catholic Schools and offer religious education.  Your support also helps to preserve the sacred shrines.  The wars, unrest and instability have been especially hard on Christians.  In these times of crisis, our support provides humanitarian aid to refugees.  When you contribute, you become an instrument of peace and join with Catholics around the world in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land.
 
PLEASE BE GENEROUS!
