Dear Friends in Christ,
Our parish exists because of your generosity. I am amazed at how you all have worked together to meet needs that arise. Together, we continue to create an inspiring community here at St. Joseph, a beacon of Christ’s love.
St. Joseph is participating in Called to Renew, a campaign to strengthen our parish as well as others, and elevate the ministries of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. We join more than 4 million faithful brothers and sisters across the Archdiocese who are also called to pledge their commitment to ensure our local Church remains strong and vibrant for future generations. This is an extraordinary opportunity for you and for all of us to live out our call to serve as His disciples together!
St. Joseph has an opportunity to address its own needs through Called to Renew. We spent the past several months determining how best to allocate the funds we raise through our campaign, and have decided to replace the church seating, renovate the parish hall/gym, remodel the restrooms in both the church and school,replace the windows in the priests’ residence, enhance adult faith formation, support Movement for a Better World, and establish a rainy- day fund for future maintenance needs.
This campaign has my full support; as your pastor, I hope you will embrace this opportunity for our community as well.
Gratefully yours in Christ,
Msgr. Kevin Kostelnik Pastor
