This month in its Family of the Month program the Knights of Columbus have chosen to honour three very worthy parishioners.

These three have and continue to serve this parish as Lectures. They serve faithfully bringing the Word of God to we the parishioners as they share their talent in delivering readings at regular and weekday Masses,                                                 Anna Maria O’Hagan....The first of these brings the message in a quiet and reverend voice .

She is very often called upon at weekday Masses as well as on weekends

Teresa McKerral.....The second delivers the message to parishioners in a sincere and formal voice. Reflecting a clear understanding of the words being read.

Virginia Pukas.....The third has progressed from being a very reserved, maybe shy, presenter to now projecting a clear conversational tone that makes  listening and understanding pleasurable.

Each has their own talent shared freely for our benefit and for which we offer thanks.

Please join us in welcoming the months Honourees

We are pleased to announce that the amount of $5919.00 has been raised and given to them. We are very proud of the parishioners of St Joseph, who graciously donated to this fundraiser. We thank all of you for each and every contribution.  Well done!

The Knights of Columbus are pleased to announce the selection of a very worthy couple as Family of the Month for February 2024.

 

This family have been part of St Joseph’s Parish for a several years, having come here from the parish in Williams Lake.  They very quickly became very active and busy members of the civic and  parish community as they had been for many years prior to their move here ..

Mom in the family is active in the CWL and other community activities. She is an active homemaker and supporter of her husbands activities. A rumour tells me she’s also a bit of a card shark.  

Dad is a long time member of the Knights of Columbus He is active as a Trustee and the Retention  committee of the local council. He is also a member of the Fourth Degree Assembly; He brought with him a solid dedication to the K of C having served as Financial Secretary in his previous council. Though retired  he could not stay inactive and returned to the workforce as a driver of the Handydart bus service in the community. In the parish he regularly serves as head usher. He is a tireless worker that seems not to know how to say ‘no’ and is involved in work party after work party..

 It is an honour and privilege to introduce this couple as  Family of the Month for February 2024,     Please join us in welcoming Norman and Pam Leslie.


Jerome & Lynn Emmel


The Knights of Columbus are pleased to announce the selection of a

very worthy couple as Family of the Month for January 2024.

This family have been a part of St Joseph Parish for several

decades. They have raised their family here, who are now adults

out there adding to the family tree, A quiet couple who seem to try

to stay under the radar, while being fully a part the parish .

Dad is a retired RCMP having completed his service as part of the

White Collar Investigation Unit. Probably how it gave him the

conviction that ‘if it’s to good to be true, it probably is.’ He is an

active member of the Council and in recent years has organized the

highway clean up project.

Mom is often seen helping. She has served in the past as parish

secretary on a number of occasions
