Message from the Pastor

Over the next few months you will be hearing a great deal about a diocesan sponsored parish revitalization program entitled "Catholic Strong." Thousands of Catholic families across the 62 parishes of the Diocese of Camden will participate as volunteers and donors during this campaign.
 
By design, this effort is future oriented and draws the attention of the faithful, primarily, to the present and anticipated pastoral needs of our local Catholic communities. Lay leaders of St. Joseph's have been meeting since March to develop a case statement for St. Joseph's as we move forward. This statement of support has been approved.
 
Details regarding this five year endeavor will be made available to all parishioners and friends of St. Joseph's in the weeks ahead.
 
At this time, I wish to pray for a successful campaign making St. Joseph's dynamic for many years and the Church of Southern New Jersey . . . "CATHOLIC STRONG."
 
God Bless,
Father Perreault

Campaign Prayer

Father, We are grateful for the gift of our church and the blessings of its parishes, schools and ministries.

 

Please watch over us as we embark on this campaign, CATHOLIC STRONG, which will fortify these gifts for the benefit of the entire community of South Jersey.

 

Let this be an opportunity to celebrate our tradition of church teaching by going outward, strengthening our future and becoming Missionary Disciples of your Son, Jesus Christ, to the people of Atlantic, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties.

 

We pray that you watch over us and guide us as we invigorate our parishes and leadership, raise our public image, embrace our diversity, and continue to serve Your mission on Earth.

 

Father, bless our campaign and send forth your Holy Spirit so that we will be for years to come CATHOLIC STRONG. Amen
