What's been happening lately........


 with the Joes from St. Joseph & Sons?
  Well, a lot actually.  

Father Keith Romke had been our Chaplain for over 4 years and we had been based at St. Bridget Parish in Loves Park, IL.  In July, 2017, we bid adieu to Father Romke as he was assigned Pastor of St. Patrick in Dixon, IL.  Father Romke had a very profound effect on the Joes.  His leadership, participation, and spiritual guidance, allowed each of us to move further along our spiritual journey.   We also want to thank St. Bridget Parish for their hospitality to St. Joseph & Sons.

Some of the major projects that we recently completed are:  
  • St. Elizabeth Center Youth Building playground renovation
  • Poor Clares Monastery Mary Garden
  • Madonna Renewal Center-Freeport, IL chapel renovation
  • Bishop Lane Retreat Center work - Boylan HS Senior Boys Retreat
Father Ken Wasilewski has now been named our Chaplain and we are based at Holy Family Parish in Rockford, IL.  Our monthly schedule at Holy Family is Mass at 6:30 am followed by 30 minutes of our meeting and 30 minutes of spiritual development.  

Finally, we are updating this blog and Facebook site.  Please bear with us as we make improvements to these sites.

Continue to check back to this site.  We will be adding additional information, pictures from the projects, upcoming projects, and a lot more.

Thank you for your support.

June "Thought of the Month"

I will not mistrust God, though I feel myself weakening and on the verge of being overcome with fear. I trust God shall place a holy hand on me and in the stormy seas hold me up from drowning.

May "Thought of the Month"

Nothing happens to us except by God’s will and permission- death or life, sickness or health, riches or poverty, even the wrongs done us by friends or relatives or anyone else. Not a leaf falls from a tree without God’s consent.
