If you purchased a flower for the altars for a loved one, you may remove it from the north sacristy at
any time. Please do not remove from altars! Thanks so much to all who contribute to this! Your
generosity sure helps to make our church even more beautiful at Christmas!

To date, St. Joseph has contributed $1,167 of our $12,740.17 goal. That includes 18 of 195

all the good that is done because we give; the homeless are sheltered, the elderly are cared
for, our seminarians are prepared for future ministry, to name just a few. Your commitment
will help ensure that someone is always loved and never alone.”

“The Super Bowl of Life”
It’s kickoff time! When you hear that, you are probably thinking of the Super Bowl, which
is one of the most “sacred” events of our secular culture. However, in addition to crowning a
football champion this weekend, it is also time to kick off National Marriage Week.
While National Marriage Week does not have the pomp and circumstance that the football
game has, perhaps it should. Super Bowl Sunday is a great opportunity to gain insight on how to
strive for excellence in our own marriage.
What if we approached our marriage in the same way these incredible athletes approached
this game? To kick off your more intentional marriage, consider the Living in Love retreat at Holy
Spirit in Overland Park, Feb 16-17, or other National Marriage Week events at

Prayer for Married Couples

Almighty and eternal God,
You blessed the union of married couples
so that they might reflect the union of Christ
with his Church:
look with kindness on them.
Renew their marriage covenant,
increase your love in them,
and strengthen their bond of peace
so that, with their children,
they may always rejoice in the gift of
your blessing.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
