Cardinal Dolan designated Monday, March 26, 2018 as Reconciliation Monday for Lent. All parishes in the Archdiocese — including St. Joseph’s — will have priests available to hear confessions from 3-9 p.m. This includes all the parishes of the Archdiocese of New York, as well as the parishes of the Diocese of Brooklyn and the Diocese of Rockville Center.

Good Friday Collection
At the 3 p.m. service on Good Friday, March 30, there will be a special collection for the Holy Land. For 800 years, the Holy Land Franciscans have served in the land made holy by the life, suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus. With your support, the Holy Land Franciscans will continue to nourish Christians in the Holy Land with presence, care, and service. Together, we can support Christianity in the Holy Land.
Easter Eggs for the Soup Kitchen
The St. Joseph's Soup Kitchen will mark the Easter celebration with a festive meal on Saturday, March 31. We have annually asked the community, including members of the parish, to provide decorated Easter eggs to distribute to our guests. The eggs are a beautiful addition to the meal and an excellent source of protein!
Please drop off your hard-boiled, decorated eggs in Casserly Hall (under the church, entrance on Washington Place) between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 31. Thanks!
