The @AllentownDiocese Office of Marriage & Natural Family Planning will host two screenings of "Sexual Revolution: 50 Years Since Humanae Vitae." The film is an exciting and beautifully-made documentary that examines the parallel developments of the Pill and modern Natural Family Planning (#nfp) by telling the little known story of the founding doctors, Dr. Gregory Pincus and Drs. John & Evelyn Billings. This film has been endorsed by The Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization. The film will be shown at two locations: Sunday October 21, 2018 at 7:00 PM at Berks Catholic High School Auditorium and Tuesday October 23, 2018 at Bethlehem Catholic High School Auditorium. For questions, please call 610-289-8900 extension 2024.

New Bible Study! Fulfilled – Uncovering the #biblical Foundations of #catholicism. Have you ever been unable to explain the “why” of Catholic beliefs? Have you ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament? In the Old Testament, God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith. That plan was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament. Join us for this new. 7-week bible series which will begin on September 20/21. Thursdays 6-7:30 pm at the Shrine at Madonna Hall & Friday mornings at the Rectory from 9-10:30 am. The program will be the same each week so you can attend on Thursday one week and Friday the next. Cost per person is $10 for materials. For more information, please contact Fr. Hoffa at frhoffasjpv@gmail.com. To register, please contact Lisa at lisasjpv@gmail.com or by calling the rectory. #biblestudy #sjpv #faithandfun #wednesdaywisdom #catholiceducation #adultformation

Join us in the rectory on Wednesday, September 12th for an information night! #rcia is a series of liturgical rites and instructions designed to prepare adults gradually for full incorporation into the #catholicchurch through the Sacraments of Initiation. The process involves fellowship, #prayer deliberation, and period of formal education in the teachings, practices, and traditions of the Church. The St. Joseph RCIA Program uses the #symbolon series - Part 1: Knowing the Faith and Part 2: Living the Faith from Augustine Institute. Pre-registration is preferred but not necessary. For more information about the RCIA, please contact the rectory at 570-645-2664 or email Father Hoffa at frhoffasjpv@gmail.com. #tuesdaymotivation #tuesdaythoughts #becomingcatholic #catholicconverts #comeandsee #faith #prayer #sacraments #carboncounty #summithill #panthervalley

So close! #halupki rolls away with the win for this year's Summer Festival! Thanks for voting! #sjpvfestival2018 #sjpvfamily #summerfestival #carboncounty #foodies #haluski #catholicsummer #sjppv

FESTIVAL UPDATE 7.22.18 - Due to safety procedures the fireworks for tonight’s festival have been postponed to a later date and time. The company we contract with for the fireworks feels due to the saturation present on the ground and the thick humidity in the air coupled with the possibility of thunderstorms, a great safety risk is present. We intend to open the festival and enjoy a grand finale to our 84th Annual event. All other events for today will proceed as scheduled. See you tonight! Please spread the word! #sjpvfestival2018 #sjpvfamily

It’s Priesthood Ordination day for Rev. Mr. John Hutta! Please keep him in your #prayers today as he is ordained to the priesthood by @bishopschlert for the @allentowndiocese today at 10:30! #prayforvocations #prayforpriests #frhutta #priesthood #ordinationday #ordination #holyorders #allentowndiocese #saturdaymorning #catholic

The Parish Pastoral Council has concluded, with @padrehoffa, that naming the Social Hall after Fr. Burdess would be very appropriate. This dedication will include a sign over the entrance to the Social Hall that will forever remember our joyful and kindhearted pastor of souls. In addition, new cushioned chairs will also be added to replace the current metal chairs. Thank you to for your generous response to financing the Rev. James J. Burdess Social Hall Memorial. But, the donations received so far do not provide for the completion of this very special project. We need your help! Please consider a contribution to this memorial, either for the first time, or in addition to your previous contribution. Let’s make this happen! #sjpvfamily #frburdessmemorial #pleasehelp #priests #prayforvocations #thursdaythoughts

Please consider joining us this Sunday, June 3rd, for the Corpus Christi Procession, a beautiful witness of our Catholic faith. The Feast of Corpus Christi Procession is one time when our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament is exposed, not just to faithful Catholics, but to all the world. This is a time when Catholics can show their love for Christ in the Real Presence by honoring Him in a very public way. It's also a wonderful way in which we can show our love for our neighbors by bringing Our Lord and Savior closer to them. #corpuschristi #realprescence #eucharist #sjpvfamily https://buff.ly/2J1uE7H

Now is the time to contact the rectory concerning the members of your family who are graduating. Indicate their name, their relationship to you, your name, what grade & school they are graduating from, where they might be going—college, graduate school, work force, etc. For our graduates (especially those who are servers), mark your calendar for the breakfast weekend in June. We’ll be honoring you at the Mass that weekend. You will be our guests at breakfast with your parents/guardians. Also, please call the parish office if you will attend breakfast. #sjpvfamily #sundaymorning #2018 #college #highschool #graduation #capandgown #congratulations #classof2018 #ohtheplacesyoullgo
