COVID-19 Update 11/18/2020

Dear Fellow Parishioners, This is the latest update to the Covid-19 restrictions in the Santa Cruz County, as per Governor Newsom. Effective Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 all Churches are closed for indoor service until further notice. This is extremely difficult and challenging for all of us especially as we are entering the Advent and Christmas seasons. Because of the unpredictability of the weather, we have decided to live stream the Mass at 7:00am and 10:00 am on Sundays. There will be no weekday daily Mass or Saturday Vigil Mass. If you participate in the Mass at home, you can come to the church from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to receive communion outside the front doors of the church by Father and an Extra Ordinary Minister of the Eucharist. Please wear a mask and follow the signs for safe distancing. If you are not feeling well, please receive spiritual communion at home. Offering baskets will be available for your convenience. Advent books will also be available for a donation. Thank you for your patience and support of our Parish. We will inform you of any updates or changes as soon as we hear. God’s Richest Blessings, Fr. Wayne Dawson Pastor

 

Adult Formation

"Adult Education" expands into a concept of "Life-Long Formation". This is consistent with and right in step with modern thinking by the Church about our mission of evangelization and discipleship. 

Adult Formation as Life-long Formation, spans our Faith journey, and all aspects of life become part of our faith formation. Each individual takes personal responsibility for his/her mature faith formation, drawing upon external sources of knowledge and internal sources of faith.  Faith Formation is a process, to support parishioners to ask questions respectfully, to explore together, to learn from one another, to inspire and support one another on this journey of faith. 

The vision for Life-long Formation connects with all aspects of our faith community including liturgy, ministry, and education. The development of faith-sharing, engaging the community in conversation about faith, developing discipleship are all aspects of adult formation. Opportunities for large and small faith-sharing as well as experiences of shared prayer and reflection draw on the existing programs and strengths St. Joseph's and connect them with one another in a supportive web of communal faith. 

Sherry Cassedy coordinates Adult Formation, finding resources within and outside the parish community to offer various programs. By including and empowering others to lead and to teach, we continue to expand the circle.
