I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your cards and gifts I received from you as I celebrated the 23rd anniversary of my priestly ordination on May 30. Your support, friendship and but most importantly your prayers are a vital part of my priestly ministry.  I am very blessed to have such a loving and thoughtful parish family here at Saint Joseph’s. As we journey together into the Kingdom of God, let us continue to grow and fulfill our mission in proclaiming the Good News of our Savior Jesus Christ.  Father Jozef
