MISSION STATEMENT
St. Joseph's is a Catholic Parish rooted in rural Lyons, Wisconsin.
Our members seek Christ’s peace by following His teachings and by
sharing together in a lifelong journey of spiritual growth. In response
to the gospel’s call for justice and compassion, we reach out and
share our resources with all those in need.
We believe that each person is blessed and gifted by the Holy Spirit.
We encourage everyone to respond to their baptismal call by sharing
their time, talents and treasures.
CONFESSIONS: First Saturdays from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
or by appointment.
BAPTISMS: Arrangements must be made in advance, allowing time
for an instruction period prior to baptism.
WEDDINGS: One member of the couple must be a registered,
practicing and contributing member of record for at
least 6 months. (Parish Council – October 20, 2005)
If you have a concern that needs immediate prayer, give it to
the PRAYER LINE by calling Julie Koenen at 763-2390.

TRAINING SESSIONS
New lectors will have training on Saturday, September 17 starting at 9:00. New
lectors should come with a Scripture reading they have prepared already so they
can practice using the microphone effectively. We will also talk about preparation. They may take one of the Missalettes on the counter in the priest’s sacristy
so they have a source for practicing the Sunday readings when they are scheduled. We should be finished before 11:00.
New Eucharistic ministers will have a training session on Saturday, September
24. We will begin at 9:00 a.m. and should be finished by 11:00 a.m.
Please pay close attention to notes that came with the new liturgical ministry
schedule. We will not have training sessions at this time for those Eucharistic
ministers, ushers and lectors who are not new this fall.
If these dates and times do not work for you, please call Lenora at 763-6647 to
arrange other times.
September 11, 2011
PATRIOT DAY
Three months after the September 11, 2001
attack on the United States, President
George W. Bush signed into law a bill
designating September 11 as Patriot Day.
Not to be confused with Patriot’s Day, an
April holiday in some New England states celebrating the first shots fired at
Lexington and Concord, Patriot Day honors the nearly three thousand people
who lost their lives on the morning of September 11, 2001. Flags are flown at
half-staff throughout the country, and a moment of silence is observed at
8:46 p.m. Eastern time, the minute the first plane struck the North Tower of
the World Trade Center in New York.
While Memorial Day and similar state observances honor those who have
given their lives in service to their country, Patriot Day is unique in that it honors first responders as well as the many civilians who died on that day.
WHAT ABOUT ANNULMENTS? Thursday, September 15 - 7:00 p.m.
St. Roman Parish, 1810 W. Bolivar, Milwaukee
Those who have been divorced may have so many questions about how they can
get on with their lives. Fr. Bernie Sippel, a specialist in the Archdiocese
Marriage Tribunal, will be able to answer questions with his presentation on
marriage annulments. Need directions? Call St. Roman at 414-282-9063. This
program is free of charge and light refreshments will be provided. Brought to
you by a seven-parish Evangelization Consortium.

Cycles of Faith - 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time
This will be a weekend of memorials. Wreaths will be laid; there will be moments
of silence. The names of the dead will be proclaimed and stories of their lives will
be told. Commentators will voice their opinions and newscasts will replay the
sound and video from that awful Tuesday morning ten years ago when four planes
crashed out of a bright, sunny sky. Two of the planes hit the Twin Towers of the
World Trade Center in New York; one struck the Pentagon in Washington, DC;
and the last came down in a Pennsylvania field as passengers rushed the hijackers
who wanted to turn that plane into a bomb as well.
Ten years ago, on the Sunday after the attack, we heard the story of the prodigal
son. This year, the cycle of Lectionary readings brings us the parable from
Matthew of the unforgiving servant. As we hear this parable we feel a certain
sense of justice as the servant, a despicable character without compassion, is
thrown into jail by the master who had once forgiven his huge debt. While we
might momentarily rejoice in the just outcome of this parable, we are immediately
skewered by the words of Jesus, who says to us, "So will my heavenly Father do
to you, unless each of you forgives your brother from your heart."
We hadn't bargained on this outcome to the parable. We are caught in the same
trap as the ungrateful servant. And where does that leave us on a day such as this,
when we remember those whose lives have been lost and believe the perpetrators
to be as despicable as the servant in the Gospel? Jesus does not make life easy for
us. As our Savior, he redeems us not only from the sin we inflict on others, but
also from the sin we inflict on ourselves. Learning to forgive even the greatest
sinners is the call of every Christian.

SO WE WON’T FORGET
The Catholic young adult group, Lolek, together with Family Life Council and
in collaboration with the Nazareth Project of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee are
co-sponsoring a Rosary and brief Pro-life Prayer Service at the grave site of
over 1,000 aborted babies buried in the Children’s Section at Milwaukee’s Holy
Cross Cemetery.
All are invited: Sunday, October 1, noon to 12:30 p.m. at Holy Cross Cemetery, 7301 West Nash Street, Milwaukee. The Children’s Section is located in
the northwest part of the cemetery, just south of the cemetery administration
building; enter on West Nash Street.
October is designated Respect Life Month by the Catholic Church, and this site
is a most fitting place to gather to ask for the Lord’s Healing Mercy, and for a
Culture of Life to take hold in our hearts, our parishes, and our country.
Let us not forget those who are buried here, and let us rededicate ourselves to
protecting the unborn and their mothers.
For more information: https://sites.google.com/site/lolekyoungadults/Home or
call 1-414-218-3769. If you would like to know how so many aborted babies
came to be buried at Holy Cross Cemetery, visit www.lifesitenews.com and
search Milwaukee Cemetery Unborn.
All parishioners are
welcome and encouraged
to attend the
Parish Council Meeting
on Thursday, Sept. 15th!
Sitting in church
doesn’t make you a Christian
any more than
standing in a garage
makes you a car!
