Parish Life

Senior Saints

Jacqueline Kordsmeier            329-1818

The Senior Saints of St. Joseph Parish invites anyone 50 years or older to participate in this group. The group meets every other Thursday at the Knights of Columbus Hall at the corner of 6th St. and 5th Ave at 9:00am. We begin with a song, followed by the daily Mass reading, pray the rosary, and end our spiritual time with another song. Snacks and door prizes are provided by volunteers and then we play Bingo. Cost of a bingo card is 50¢ and includes all games.  The gathering normally ends by 11am. On special occasions, the group will also share a potluck lunch.  This group offers a great opportunity for fellowship and fun with fellow parishioners. Join us any Thursday you can. The gathering dates are published in the church bulletin or you may call for more details.
