St. Joan of Arc Church International Carnival 2015

St. Joan of Arc Church is proud to host the International Carnival 2015 to evangelize our Faith through prayer, food and family fun; to celebrate the ethnic diversity of our parish through international symbols, artifacts and heritage; and enrich our parish through the contributions of time, talent and treasure.  Please join with us May 14-17, 2015 to explore, enjoy and experience being Catholic, Family and Faith-filled.

Faith-based Christian communities are defined and grounded by one universal communion – Diversity.

St. Joan of Arc Church epitomizes that universal communion through a rich international diversity that is vibrant and giving. This culture exhibits the differences in each of us, devoted to being one in Christ and one in Community. Daily we come to the table, to gather and to be fed. The St Joan of Arc parish possesses a variety of gifts in pursuit of the same goal and God. Everyone has a contribution that is capable of benefiting the community.  God is the source of our gifts and He deserves the glory and our devotion.

You are invited to come celebrate with us as a family and community who welcome all with open arms.

St. Joan of Arc:  “Where all are Welcome”

bookThe SJA Spiritual Library is expanding!  There are now over 200 books, CD’s and DVD’s in four bookcases, with subjects ranging from Saints, Popes, Marriage, Prayer, Bible and Church history, Catholicism, Sacraments, books of encouragement, hope, and more. Do you have questions about your faith?  Are you struggling with a particular life transition?  Need inspiration?  Stop in for a visit to your library, located in Classroom A across from the JPII hall, you may find just what you need.

The library is in great need of volunteers to help staff the room for half an hour before and after each Mass, once a month. There is also need of monetary donations to help create an inviting space and to help cover library supplies. Any small gift you can share will be put to good use for our parish community.

A book discussion group will be forming soon.  To join a book group, donate, volunteer or ask questions, please contact Laura Ortiz at 617.331.9035, or email at lauraj222@yahoo.com.
