Have you recently lost a loved one?

Loss is a painful reality of life and when someone close to us dies, the grieving process can leave us feeling lonely and isolated. We do not have to embark on this journey alone.

Linda Gilbert, counselor and St.  Joan of Arc parishioner, is offering a 4 week class called “Healing from Loss” beginning in January. These are the dates and times of the class.

·        The evening group is from 6:30 – 8:00 pm on the following Wednesdays – January 10, 17, 24,  31

·        The morning group is from 9:00 – 10:30 am  on the following Fridays – January 5, 12, 19, 26

Please contact Jan Marrah to register – jan@saintjoan.org or 865-6684.

Can you help fill the St. Vincent de Paul Thanksgiving baskets?

Can you help fill the St. Vincent de Paul Thanksgiving baskets?

The St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry will be making up Thanksgiving boxes for families in the community, and we are in need of dry noodles, broth, stove top stuffing, box potatoes, macaroni & cheese, canned fruit, brownie mix or cake mix & icing. We also give each family a gift card to purchase their choice of meat.  If it is easier for you to donate cash or a Kroger gift card, that is greatly appreciated also. Thank you for your donations.

St. Monica, Pray for Us!

St. Monica, Pray for Us!

We have a perpetual novena to St. Monica for the conversion of souls that we pray each Friday after Mass. There are cards and a box we leave out all week to add the names of those we know that we are praying back to the Church. Stop in anytime and add more names that we can pray for. Better yet - come Friday at 8:15 am for Mass and pray the novena with us! St. Monica, pray for us! Click here for the Novena to St. Monica.
