St. Joseph Church has two wheelchairs available for anyone who needs assistance getting into or out of the church. A chair is located in the South entryway. (The front door we do not use). Feel free to borrow this chair if you need it.
LADIES GUILD SOUP SUPPER
We are changing soup supper date to October 17 so as not to interfere with Husker first game on the 24th.
The Ladies Guild Soup Supper is October 17th and instead of a live auction and raffle, we will have a silent auction with multiple items to bid on in the weeks leading up to the Soup Supper. Since we are not asking for contributions for the raffle this year, we are asking for cash donations from parishioners to buy items for the auction. Some of the Ladies Guild members will then use the money to purchase a variety of items for auction.
If you would like to contribute money for an item, please leave your donation in the Ladies Guild mailbox or contact Lois Dalton, Julie Richards or Angie Iverson to pick it up at your home. Checks should be made out to the Ladies Guild.
LADIES GUILD SILENT AUCTION
The Ladies' Guild Silent Auction will be before and after Masses beginning October 3rd/4th. Items will be displayed in the vestibule. Bids will be written on a sheet of paper next to the item. At the end of the auction, which will be at the Soup Supper on October 17th at 7:30pm, the highest bidder wins the item. The silent auction will be three weeks long. In-person bidding will only be available before and after Masses, not during the weekdays. In-person bidding will also be available the evening of the Soup Supper.
In order to have higher-visibility of items, a second way of bidding will be used. We will place pictures and descriptions of the auction items on the church’s Facebook page, beginning on October 5th. Bid amounts are to be written as a comment under an item’s picture. Questions about an item may also be asked as a comment under an item's picture. ("Liking" the picture does not mean a bid...feel free to like pictures.) The director of the silent auction will update both the Facebook page and the sheets of paper as new bids are given. At 7:30pm on October 17th, the director will check time stamps on Facebook comments vs. paper copies to determine the winner.

Many thanks to Larry and Kathy Kaiser and to Dave & Lin Kulm for donating the money to provide the meal at the Stephens’ Center this month. This was in lieu of preparing and serving the meal due to Covid-19.
FOR THOSE ASKING
The Knights of Columbus has decided that they would not sponsor a food booth at the Sarpy County Fair (if there is a fair) this year. This decision was based on the current price of the food, the close quarters required of workers in the food booth and most likely a lack of volunteers to work due to the Corona virus. They plan to be back next year.
