The conceptual Roots of Christian Faith, Taking a Closer Look at the Catechism

A series organized by the Thomas International Center. DR. FULVIO DI BLASI, TIC Director, returns to Saint Joseph on Saturday, Nov 29 at 7:00 p.m. to give the third of ten lectures, "Creation and Knowledge of God,” in the community room. These classes are focusing on some of the main conceptual “tools” that make possible the understanding of Christian Faith, or, in other words, on the way in which Christian Philosophy has been “serving” theology (ancilla theologiæ) over the last 2,000 years by going together on some key points and chapters of the Catechism.


Tuesday, December 2 Late Morning Mass  at 11:30 a.m. followed by the Annual Seniors Christmas Luncheon in the community room. All seniors of the parish are invited.

Please sign up on the bulletin board or contact Kathy Kelling at 919-782-5646.


Join us for an Advent Retreat Saturday, Dec 13, starting with Mass at 8:00 a.m. at St. Joseph Parish followed by a half day retreat in the 620 House with Abbot Placid Solari, OSB of Belmont Abbey. Refreshments provided. Contact Jeremy Kryn at 919-803-0652 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .


for high school age youth and older (current 8th graders included). We would like to send a group from our parish to Morganton, N.C. June 14- 20. We will need adult chaperones and some fundraising and your commitment SOON. Deposits of $85 per person will hold our spots for this trip. Total cost is $330 per person for food/lodging. Catholic Heart Workcamp ( ) along with Catholic youth ministers and teens, have formed this ministry across the country and beyond. 13,000 strong this summer, in over 50 different cities, parish youth groups and schools have joined together to serve as Christ modeled. As bold Catholics we embrace this challenge to put ourselves aside to serve and restore homes and hearts, feed the hungry, lift the spirits of children, give hope to the disabled, and provide help through partnerships with social agencies.

Each day will be spent either renewing homes by doing such things as painting, housecleaning, yard work, and minor home repairs (experienced trouble-shooters will visit the sites to check on workmanship and provide help when needed); or, helping at day care centers for low-income families by assisting with the children’s programs, working at homeless shelters, or helping at centers that distribute food to the needy.
