What’s the mass all about?

Fr. Peter Berger, Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, will be at our church on Wednesday, March 21, at 6:45pm.  All are welcome to join the REP students for this wonderful learning experience.  A teaching Mass is just that.  Fr. Peter will be saying Mass as usual, but will be stopping at certain times to explain what is happening and why we do or say the things we do.  If you have unanswered questions about what happens at Mass and why… or if you would like to have a better understanding of the mass, Fr. Peter will help!  See you at Mass!

Table of Mercy – St. Joseph’s Feast Day

The tradition of the St. Joseph’s Table

During a famine in Sicily, when food was scarce and many people were starving, the poor people had only their faith to rely on.  St. Joseph was known as the protector of the Holy Family and Italians had strong family relationships, so they prayed for St. Joseph to intercede for them so they could have successful crops.  Their prayers were answered, and the famine came to an end.  In gratitude, people promised to make annual offerings of their most precious possession — food– in St. Joseph’s honor.

Today, the faithful erect “St Joseph Tables” to honor St. Joseph and feed the poor and hungry in their communities.
