  • Mass Time Changes For the last few years, at certain times of the year, Sunday Mass at St. Joseph has gotten a little crowded. Often, Mass has been standing room only. This a great problem for the parish to have! But it also needs to be remedied
    Since we are also blessed to have the parishioners from Our Lady of Guadalupe join us--and they are coming from the Central Time zone--it is time to add a later Sunday Mass.
    The new Sunday Mass schedule will begin on Palm Sunday, April 14, 2019. The new schedule will be 9:00am and 11:00am, Eastern Time. Saturday Mass will remain at its regular time.
    This will affect a few things, like our musicians, lectors and extraordinary ministers of holy communion. So please help us as we make this expansion to our Mass schedule!
  • Sunday Mass Refreshments Please volunteer to help with refreshments after Mass either by bringing food or setting up. For more information, contact Judy Todd 352-464-1284
  • Stations of the Cross Join us each Friday during Lent for Stations of the Cross, in the church, at 6:00pm.
    Following Stations of the Cross, we will have a soup supper in the parish hall. Feel free to bring a meatless soup or other dish to share. Everyone is welcome to come and share a meal.
  • Parish Updates
    St. Joseph
    Parish Hall - This week, the hall should start getting put back together, with a few improvements!
    Church - We got our new roof last week! Next step will be some interior repairs. The date for those are TBD
    Rectory - Someone is buying the rectory, let’s pray that everything goes through without a hitch!
    Our Lady of Guadalupe
    After demolition crews finish their work at Our Lady of the Rosary in Panama City, they will begin work at OLG. Stay tuned for an exact date.
  • An Idea for Lent A few people have asked for a quote from the homily last Sunday. It’s a good thing to keep in mind as we seek to follow the Lord more faithfully in our families, relationships, places of work, and parish: "The three poisons of community life are complaining, sarcasm, and gossip. We strive to use our speech to encourage, affirm, and show gratitude." - from the Life Teen Summer Missions Rule of Life 2016
  • Church Sound System You may have noticed we have not had a sound system working in the church for the last few weeks. Unfortunately we will continue not having one for a few more weeks while we wait for parts of the church to get put back together. Fortunately, when we do get everything put back together, we will have an even more robust sound system. Thanks for your patience.

  • Maintenance Needs Do you see anything around the church or hall that needs repair? Let us know! Send an email to office@stjosephpsj.org
  • Offertory Envelopes If you are not currently receiving Offertory Envelopes, and you would like to, contact the church office 850-227-1417. Envelopes will be mailed to you.
  • Can We Help? If you or someone you know needs help with meals, a visit, or anything else, let us help! Contact Rosalie Tritsch (850) 705-1115.
  • Serve at Mass: The parish is in need of more lectors and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. If you are interested, contact Fr. Chris (either by email or the office phone) so we can set up a time for training. Your service helps everyone enter more fully into the celebration of the Eucharist.
  • Volunteer Note: Every Thursday around 10:00am eastern we need folders for the Bulletins for both Our Lady and St. Josephs. Please think about joining us.
  • Food Pantry: Whenever you are grocery shopping, please add a few non-perishable items for our food basket. Don't forget the family pets also need help.
  • Flower Funds Needed: Please remember take a flower envelope from the table in the vestibule to make a donation when you can and drop in collection basket. Thank you to those who have given. Your donations help create a holy and reverent space for worship.

"After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples by the Sea..."  (Jn 21:1).

The Sea has often been a special place to encounter the Lord. Whether you are local, a seasonal visitor, or someone enjoying a weekend on the Gulf Coast, St. Joseph Parish is a place to encounter Jesus. Join us for Mass, Adoration, Bible Study, social events, or simply stop by to offer a prayer.
