St. Michael High School Welcomes You:
Thursday, September 28th
Parent Enrichment Speaker: Jason Angelette
“Parenting in the Digital Age"
6:45-8:00pm in the New Multipurpose Room
Open to parents of 6th-12th grade students
Children today are being brought up in a much different digital environment than the one we were raised in. There are many great blessings that are coming out of these advancements in technology. However, parents and grandparents need to be aware of new challenges and even dangers for our children.
You are invited to hear a presentation where you will learn more about the various difficulties that our youth, teens and young adults are facing through this new digital age, what we can do to better protect them, as well as steps that you can show them to become smarter users of this new technology.

All catechists are invited to 11am Mass for a blessing going into the 2019-2020 year.
This year, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 15, 2019. The 2019 theme will be "Stay with Us." Those who the Community has designated to serve as catechists will be called forth to be commissioned for their ministry. Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. Catechetical Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith.

Think about this for a second...no priests means no confession. No way to clean our souls in hope of entering Heaven. No priests means no Communion. No way to enter fully into the mystery, the Source and Summit, of our faith! We aren't recruiting for the seminary, just praying for those vocations. Will you take our vocation chalice for one week and pray for our current and future priests?
We have over 60 ministries here at St. Joseph’s and we’re throwing a fair in order to show you as many as we can! Stop by after the Sunday Masses (8am & 11am) and stop by our ministry’s tables and see what we’re up to. See you there!
Wondering what will be there? Take a look at our Directory of Ministries and make note of the ministries who’s tables you’d like to vist:
Genesis at Ponchatoula High
Genesis is a club in Ponchatoula High where we about God with the students over their lunch period. This club was started by some of our very own teens here at St. Joseph's in 2014. We are currently looking for volunteers to help with Genesis this upcoming 2019-2020 school year. We meet on Mondays from 10:30am-1pm with two lunch periods in between. Here's who and what we're looking for:
Adults: to arrive at 10:30am and help set up the tables of food and drink to be handed out. We will also pray with the whoever is speaking that day. (adults must be safeguarding environment trained. If not already, contact the office and we'll get you set up)
Students at Ponchatoula High: to hand out the food previously set up during your lunch period. (This will count as a Thirst service project too!) We'll also need help hanging up flyers in the school.
