Welcome Friends in Christ!
Father Weikart and the Staff of St. Joan of Arc Parish would like to wish each and everyone a Blessed and Happy Easter Season!
Dear Parishioners and Prospective Parishioners,
Welcome to our parish website. We hope the information on these pages is helpful to you in finding your place at St. Joan of Arc and that your spiritual needs may be fulfilled. Our parish is very active in many ways both spiritual and material. As well as having opportunities for spiritual growth for all ages, we also encourage the participation of the whole family in worship and growth. Our parish is deeply involved in the practice of Stewardship. This means that we believe that all our time, talents and treasures are truly gifts from God and are given to us to be shared to build up God's Kingdom here on earth. So, if you are interested in a parish where people are involved, you have come to the right place. We heartily welcome you and hope that if there is anything we can do for you that you will not hesitate to call.

Stewardship Thought for May 17, 2015,
The Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord; Seventh Sunday of Easter
50 Days of Joy & Gratitude - Jesus tells his disciples to “proclaim the Gospel to every creature”. Proclaiming is a very deliberate type of communication that requires joy to be effective and authentic. We cannot truly proclaim the Gospel without joy in our hearts. As we share our time, talents, and treasure, are we truly proclaiming the Gospel or merely meeting an obligation?
The Diocesan Stewardship Commission is celebrating 50 days of Joy & Gratitude this Easter Season! Join us on diocesan social media for daily inspiration and reflections to help us remember all that God has blessed us with so we can respond as good stewards with joyful and grateful hearts during the 50 days of Easter and beyond. See and Like the Diocesan Facebook page!

Fortnight for Freedom
Fortnight 2015: Freedom to Bear Witness
The U.S. Bishops have called for a Fortnight for Freedom from June 21 to July 4, 2015. This is a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power—St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome. The theme of this year's Fortnight will focus on the "freedom to bear witness" to the truth of the Gospel.
Make an extra effort to pray for the future of our Church, our nation and religious freedom. For more information go to www.fortnight4freedom.org.
