SAINT JOSEPH THE WORKER CHOIR DIRECTOR LEAVES AFTER FOURTEEN YEARS
WE SAY GOODBYE TO OUR BELOVED KATHY HARRIS
It is with immense sadness that we say goodbye to our choir director, Kathy Harris. She is leaving St. Joseph the Worker. Her husband’s job was transferred to Ohio, so the family is moving back east. For Kathy, leaving St. Joseph is one of the hardest things she has ever had to do. However, the transfer will put her closer to her immediate family, so there is a silver lining.
Kathy’s last time as choir director will be the weekend of June 5th and 6th. If you would like to show your appreciation for all she has given us over the past fourteen years, we are collecting money to help alleviate the expenses of moving her family
across the country.
A table will be set up in the narthex that weekend where you can drop off cards and
well-wishes, or you may put a card with Kathy’s name on it in the Offertory Box or bring /mail it to the office. Please give cash or checks (made out to Kathy Harris only).

COVID-19 VACCINE MORALITY QUESTION
Is It OK to Get the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine?
Discussion across the country has recently centered on the use of abortion-derived cell lines for COVID-19 vaccines. Both our USCCB and Pope Francis have said it is morally acceptable to have the Johnson & Johnson vaccine when it is not possible to choose which vaccine is given.
