ST JOSEPH CEMETERY SPRING CLEAN UP

 

There has been some planting of a new grass in the center section of the cemetery, where priests and deacons are buried. It looks sparse at this time and we will be doing other seeding. Please allow the new grass to catch on.

 

There is a problem with the use of permanent glue on stones as items and vases are added. Some of the vases and small concrete angels have broken leaving dangerous jagged edges and the glue cannot be removed. Please refrain from using Gorilla glue and other permanent adhesives.

 

The mowing has finally started and we greatly appreciate the areas that have been cleared for the maintenance work.

 

**Memorial Day Mass will be at the cemetery will be on Monday, May 28 at 9:00*

 

 

Corpus Christi's CASH RAFFLE: We will once again be offering you the chance to win Cash every day during the month of July.

 

More information to come.

 

Tickets will be $20.00 with proceeds going to the New Exterior Door Fund!

 

MAY MONTH OF THE ROSARY -May is the month of the Rosary. Please join IHM this Tuesday - May 1st at 8 pm and every evening during May to pray this powerful prayer.
Attention parishioners who are 70 1/2 that are taking required minimum distributions (RMDs) from their traditional IRA accounts. Starting with the 2018 tax year, very few individuals and couples will be able to itemize their tax deductions going forward. This is because Congress has raised the standard deduction and have eliminated the personal exemption. For many, this means their donations to church and other charities may not be able to be deducted for tax purposes. We strongly recommend you to consider discussing the benefits of a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) with your financial adviser and/or your tax adviser. By doing this, you may be able to minimize your overall tax liability. A lower adjusted gross income may also trigger a reduction in taxable Social Security benefits and/or future Medicare premiums.
