Saint Joseph Church Mission Statement
Declaración de la Misión de la Iglesia de San José
We, the people of Saint Joseph Church, by the grace of God,
born again in the waters of Baptism, seek to create a
community where our mutual faith in Jesus as Lord and
Savior, encourages us to continue growing as disciples. We
believe that discipleship is a way of life. We strive to show
that we are committed disciples, eager to welcome the
stranger, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and comfort
the bereaved. Inspired by God’s word and nourished by the
Eucharist, we pledge ourselves to active discipleship all for
God’s greater glory and honor.
Nosotros, la gente de la Iglesia San José, por la gracia de
Dios, nacidos de nuevo en las aguas del bautismo, buscamos
crear una comunidad donde nuestra fe en común en Jesús
como Señor y Salvador, nos anime a seguir creciendo como
discípulos. Creemos que el discipulado es una manera de
vida. Nos esforzamos por demostrar que somos discípulos
comprometidos, deseosos de dar la bienvenida al extranjero,
alimentar al hambriento, abrigar al desprotegido y confortar
al afligido. Inspirados en la palabra de Dios y alimentados
por la Eucaristía, nos comprometemos a ser discípulos
activos para mayor gloria y honra de Dios.

Heavenly Father, you created the sun, planets, moon and stars, and everything that breathes to give you glory. You are mighty and

AMEN.

LOOKING IN THE RIGHT PLACES
“Appearances can be deceiving,” as the saying goes. As we
celebrate the epiphania, the “appearing” of the eternal Word of
God on earth, this is still true.
What rapturous foresight must have filled Isaiah as he wrote
the words we hear today. How, for four hundred years, they must
have filled the hearts of the people of Israel with hope for the day
when God’s glory would shine on them. How deceived some
must have felt when the glory of God came to them in the lowliest and humblest of human lives.
We have many expectations about how the divine presence
will appear among us. But we can also set ourselves up, through
these expectations, to miss the divine glory when it truly appears.
We get caught up in looking for the star, forgetting that the star is
not the divine sign, the babe is. It may take a persistent journey
for us to come upon the true appearance of God’s glory in our
lives: Jesus Christ. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

BUSCAR EN EL LUGAR CORRECTO
“Las apariencias engañan” dice el refrán. Al celebrar la epifanía, la manifestación del Verbo de Dios eterno en la tierra, el
refrán sigue siendo cierto.
¡Qué sublime premonición debe haber sentido Isaías al escribir
las palabras que hoy escuchamos! Por cuatrocientos años, cómo
habrán llenado los corazones del pueblo de Israel con esperanzas
de que llegaría el día en que la gloria de Dios se derramaría sobre
ellos. ¡Qué desilusionados deben haberse sentido algunos cuando la
gloria de Dios les llegó en una vida humana de las más bajas y
humildes!
Tenemos muchas expectativas de cómo la presencia divina va a
manifestarse entre nosotros. Pero también podemos exponernos,
por culpa de esas expectativas, a perder de vista la gloria divina
cuando se nos aparece de verdad. Nos entretenemos buscando la
estrella, y nos olvidamos que la estrella no es la señal divina, sino el
bebé. Puede que tengamos que persistir en el camino antes de llegar
a encontrarnos con la apariencia real de la gloria de Dios en nuestra vida: Jesucristo. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

SAVE THE DATE 3rd ANNUAL HOLY NAME SOCIETYVALENTINES DAY CARD FUNDRAISER
Please show your support for the Saint Joseph Church Holy Name Society and their many charitable acts by purchasing a Valentine’s
Day card. Cards will be available for purchase in the vestibule area after mass, mid January into February. The cards were beautifully
handcrafted by Saint Joseph Academy students. In Ms. Croce’s art class, K-8 students were asked to reflect on love; who do they
love, who loves them, and how is that love shown? This year they were given the choice to draw about love, illustrate a bible verse on
love and friendship, or create an original poem or haiku. Thank you for all your past support! God Bless!

PASTOR’S DESK—ESCRITORIO DEL PASTOR
Today we celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord. The
Feast commemorates the coming the Wise Men and all those
that seek the Lord. It reminds us that as the Lord came to be
with us at Christmas it is our responsibility to continue to find
Him in all aspects of our lives. Like the Wise Men we are
called to offer our gifts and talents to the Lord. We do that in
many ways. In the gift of love we give to our families and
friends, in our generosity with all the gifts that God has given
to us and in our parish.
We welcome today Fr. Matthew Dooley, the
Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Newark. He will be
preaching all the masses speaking about how each of us is
called to foster vocations in our own families and
communities.
I will be in Florida for the next 2 weeks spending time
with my family. Please be assured of my prayers as we continue in this Christmas season.
Hoy celebramos la Epifanía del Señor . La fiesta
conmemora la llegada de los Reyes Magos y todos los que buscan al Señor . Nos recuerda que como el Señor vino a estar
con nosotros en Navidad es nuestra responsabilidad de seguir
lo encontramos en todos los aspectos de nuestras vidas. Al
igual que los Reyes Magos que estamos llamados a ofrecer a
nuestros dones y talentos para el Señor . Lo hacemos de muchas maneras. En el don del amor que le damos a nuestras
familias y amigos , en nuestra generosidad con todos los dones
que Dios nos ha dado a nosotros y en nuestra parroquia .
Damos la bienvenida hoy al P. Mateo Dooley , el
Director de Vocaciones de la Arquidiócesis de Newark . Él
estará predicando todas las masas de habla acerca de cómo
cada uno de nosotros está llamado a promover las vocaciones
en nuestras propias familias y comunidades.
Y a estar en la Florida para el próximo 2 semanas
pasar tiempo con mi familia . Tenga la seguridad de mis oraciones mientras continuamos en esta temporada de Navidad.
Do you have photos of events (your baptism, wedding, graduation, dance, festival, etc.) that took place at St. Joseph Church or
School? We're assembling a collection of historical pictures to use at various anniversary events throughout the year as well as
on the parish website. Email your digital photo(s) to "[email protected]". You can send just one or as many as your
email account will allow. Please also email a Word document or PDF including a list of the photo descriptions (year and event
name if you have them) so we can categorize your photos.
Some things to keep in mind:
- We regret that we won't be able to accept any printed photographs in the rectory office. We simply do not have the resources
necessary to collect, store, scan, and return printed photographs.
- We can't promise that we'll use every photo we receive, but aim to present as much of the parish history as possible.
- When scanning your photographs, scan them at resolutions no higher than 300dpi (please contact us if you require assistance)
- By emailing your photographs to us, you are giving us permission to reproduce them without restriction in both print and electronic media (including the parish website).
For questions related to this historical photo collection, please contact Michael Chladil at [email protected] Please
feel free to pass this message along to anyone else you think might have a good collection of pictures at St. Joseph Church.
