Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Joseph Parish,

Grace to you and Peace!

This is the time of year when we begin to look forward to the Promises of Advent and the Joy of Christmas. And in that spirit, I invite each of you to Be a Star! when you participate in our parish raffle: Follow the Star!

The raffle will be offering $10,000 in prize money:
First Prize of $5,000;
Five Second Prizes of $1,000 each.

To increase the chance of winning, we will be selling only 500 tickets.
The tickets are $100 each, or three tickets for $250.
The drawing will be on the Feast of the Epiphany.

So, Follow the Star! to Little Christmas in this raffle. And you might Be a Star when you win that First Prize, or one of the five Second Prizes.

This is a wonderful way to share the excitement of the coming Season, and to support our parish’s many ministries of service. We have had no Parish Party for two years, and this is our only fundraising event for the year.

You can take three tickets yourself. You can get together with friends or neighbors and share the tickets. You can purchase individual tickets to use as stocking-stuffers for Christmas.

I encourage you to get into the raffle early, because when the tickets are gone, they are gone! Don’t be left out in the cold!

Please complete the tickets and use the enclosed envelope to return them with your check. Additional tickets are available at the rectory office.

May God bless you and your loved ones.

Faithfully yours in Christ Jesus,


Reverend Msgr. James P. Swiader
Pastor
