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 October 22 2017,
Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time
 
“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind.” - MATTHEW 22:37
Do you put other “gods” before God?  Is your love of money, power, status or some personal possession greater than your love for God?  Do you really recognize that everything you have and everything you are is a gift from God?  The good news – it’s not too late to put God first in your life in all things.

Pastoral Plan Implementation Report
 
Do you remember the Pastoral Plan from 2015?  Did anything ever happen with it?  Now you can read all about the wonderful initiatives that have happened through the diocesan offices and at our parishes.  A report on the implementation of the Pastoral Plan for Evangelization, Trusting in Christ: A Call to Discipleship, is now available on the Diocesan Evangelization webpage at http://www.doy.org/index.php/diocesan-offices/evangelization.  Under “Pastoral Plan Implementation Report – Pentecost 2017” are three links to the files that make up the report.  Please read the report to spark ideas for your own parish and for collaborative efforts within your area.  Contact Pete Schafer, Director of the Office of Evangelization and Pastoral Planning at (330) 744-8451 ext. 275 for more information.

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!
