"In the Spring of 2016, Pope Francis issued an Apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia - The Joy of Love. Although many people have seen selected passages, few Catholics have had the time to read the entire document.The Newman Institute of the Diocese of Joliet in Illinois—with the creative and collegial support of our Communications and Information Technology departments—is pleased to share this daily blog. Subscribers will journey together through Pope Francis’ Amoris Laetitia'—one paragraph per day--starting on August 1, 2016."

I though that with everyone's busy schedules this would be an easy way to "pace ourselves" reading the document. Here is the link:

Even though the blog began posting on August 1, I plan to read 2-3 paragraphs each day until caught up. I will also post the link on the "Best Catholic Links" sidebar to the right.

Hello St. Joseph Religious Education Families! I am excited to be here and to meet each of you!

I am awaiting final approval on the calendar, and will publish it as soon as it is available. I am also in the process of creating a Google Calendar which is posted to the right.

I have scheduled the initial Parent Meeting for Wednesday, August 24th at 6:30 PM. This is a mandatory meeting to receive the RE handbook, review policies and expectations, and pay any fees. Fr. Greg would also like the opportunity to address all Religious Education families.

I am scheduled to speak at all Masses and greet families this weekend. Please feel free to stop by and say "hello!" I look forward to meeting many of you then!

Classes begin on:
Tuesday, September 6 and Wednesday, September 7!
