"Batalla de Organos"
Come. Hear and view on a big screen our grand and glorious organ as Music Director, Ronald McKean reveals the Rosales Opus 14 organ to be a one-man band....Baroque style.

Also featured will be secular and sacred organ pieces imitating birds, whistles, drums and singing. Come for his pre-concert talk at 7PM to learn how our organ, one of only three in the US, authentically renders the music style of this period. Delight in the ensuing 7:30PM concert within the inspiring and acoustically pure Old Mission Church.

You are invited to our Special Needs Mass !
We would like to invite you to join us for our Special Needs Mass on Sunday, February 4 at 11am. Come join us as we praise God in prayers, songs and gestures. We look forward to seeing you there!
Once a month our special needs adults and children, their families, caretakers and catechists will attend the 11:00 AM Mass. The routines of attending the Sunday Mass together as a group helps our special friends to feel at ease at Mass and to easily adjust and be a part of our St. Joseph community.
We want you to be aware that besides worshipping God in silence, singing and listening to the readings at Mass, our special friends also have their particular ways to communicate with God, such as clapping hands, making some noises, or covering their ears because of the music’s volume. Since our friends have their special needs, we ask for your understanding and patience with them. Please help us and together we can praise, worship and honor our gracious and loving God, who truly loves each one of us for who we are.
If you feel the gentle nudge by the Holy Spirit calling you to get more involved or to help our special friends in one of our special needs ministries, please contact Sr. Cecilia, ceciliastjoseph@ gmail.com. Through ministering to our special friends, volunteers (catechists) experience much joy in our hearts. Thank you for your love, prayers and support!
