                                   Nineteenth Sunday In Ordinary Time
Jesus silences the murmurers,
“No one can come to me unless
the Father who sent me draws
him.” What does it mean to
“listen to the Father”? It means
being attentive to the needs and
desires of our own humanity. If
Elijah had not been brought to
the point of starvation, he would
not pray as he does today. What
the doubters in the Gospel find so
far-fetched - “I am the living
bread that came down from
heaven” - is in fact exactly what
they need in order to be drawn to
the Father’s love. That is why
“Christ loved us” by handing
himself over for us “as a
sacrificial offering.”

                               St. Joseph the Worker Photo Directory
We are creating an updated church photo directory for the 2018/19 year! This directory will help to foster
our beautiful church community but putting names to the all faces at our church.

All parishioners are encouraged to participate. Participation is free for parishioners and participants will
receive one free 8x10 photo and a free copy of the new church directory. Photo sessions will occur in August
(28th to Sept 1st) and will continue again in September (17th - 20th and 25th - 27th). We have many
families to include, so be sure to set up an appointment early!

Booking an Appointment:
To book a sitting with a photographer for the church photo directory, you can sign up online at the following
