Our Mission: St. Joseph's parish is called to be a faith community, welcoming all people
as we celebrate God's love through Word and Sacrament. We are sent out into
the world to be Christ's hands and feet, in humble and simple ways, while
reaching out and accepting the poor and those in need with compassion and respect.

- Lent Begins:
Lenten Observances - All weekdays in Lent are days of special penance. We are obliged to join the
Church around the world in fast and abstinence on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday. On Good Friday
and Holy Saturday we keep the solemn Paschal fast.
FASTING - Fasting means cutting down on the amount and richness of our food and drink. Done
as a penance for sin, it helps us to pray better: an empty stomach can lead to more attentive prayer.
The law of fasting obliges adults until they are 60 years old.
ABSTINENCE- We may give up meat or other desirable foods on one or two days a week during Lent,
especially on Friday, the day of Christ’s saving death on the cross. Our abstinence is another way
of sharing in Christ’s work of saving the world. A day of abstinence from meat is obliging all
Catholics who are 14 years or older.

- Parking Reminder: There is limited parking available in St. Joseph’s lot located between
the church and hall and along the back of the hall (nose in parking). We ask that you use this any
time you are at the church or hall, if there are spaces available. The two spaces facing the Broadway
Avenue door of the Church are designated Handicap Spaces. Please be respectful of others in how you park.
Please do not block in other drivers so they cannot get out of the lot and please do not park in front
of the garage at the rectory. Parking in the alleys around the area (including along the rectory) may
see you get ticketed or towed by the city. Please respect the properties around the Church and do
not block or park in their driveways. If there are no areas for parking in the lot, please use
Broadway Avenue, 8th Street or any of the residential streets in the neighbourhood.
Thank you for your cooperation.
