Reflections From a Carpenter’s Angle

The Servers Knew

At the wedding feast of Cana, St. John tells us that the head waiter did not know where the "new wine" came from.  However, the servers knew because they were the ones who filled the water jugs.   As our parish will soon celebrate one hundred years of fostering Jesus Christ, it is those who have served here at St. Joseph Parish that know where the new wine came from.

Many who have not been here recently wonder where the new wine came from.  This new wine is the joy and pride we all feel for St. Joseph parish.  Our many faithful workers, staff volunteers and faithful parishioners all know where the  new wine came from.   Like those who responded to Our Blessed Mother at Cana we did what ever Jesus told us to do.  And now our hearts are filled with the joy and pride that comes from new wine.  

Saint Joseph Foster Our Love For Jesus,
