Come Join Us For

“The Search”

During Lent


St. Joseph’s is offering a 7-week series of faith building exercises called “The Search”. This program will search into the deepest questions of the human heart, exploring the meaning and purpose of life with a visually stunning and intellectually stimulating approach. “The Search”, which will be presented in the Church, includes 7 episodes examining life and death, sorrow and happiness, and science and faith. These episodes all point to one big conclusion: Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. Each episode averages 30 minutes in length.


  • February 21, 7:00 PM, Episode 1: What do You Seek?
  • What is that deep longing in our hearts all about? We’re all living for something, and we all strive for that something out there that is ultimately going to make us happy. But what is it?
  • February 28, 7:00 PM, Episode 2: Who Are You?
  • To find clues as to the meaning of life, we first look at ourselves. Who am I? Is there more to me than matter? Is there more to us than meets the eye? We will hear from neuroscientists, psychologists, composers, and artists to examine the mystery of who we are.
  • March 7, 7:00 PM, Episode 3: Why a God?
  • All through human history man has looked to something outside himself for the answers to life. Why have we given up on God? Do we think science has disproven Him? Do we think society is better off without Him?
  • March 14, 7:00 PM, Episode 4: What’s Our Story?
  • This great story of humanity, as we see in Scripture, shows us the amazing love story that is God’s pursuit of man. The God that is love created us so we can ultimately be with His love. We were made to be with God. Union with God is so central to the purpose of life that we even see the afterlife in these terms.
  • March 21, 7:00 PM, Episode 5: Who is Jesus?
  • The most beautiful part of this story is that we can personally know God’s love. This is the person of Jesus. But how did this seemingly insignificant carpenter born into poverty in a dusty corner of the Roman Empire become the most pivotal figure in all of history?
  • March 28, 7:00 PM, Episode 6: Am I Saved?
  • We don’t deserve God’s love, but that’s the amazing reality of God’s mercy. This relationship with God isn’t all about our love for Him. It’s about His love for us that changes our lives forever.
  • April 4, 7:00 PM, Episode 7: Why A Church?
  • Jesus’ first words to humanity in the Gospel of John are “What do you seek?” The one that asked the question not only knows the answer. He is the answer, the answers to everything. And we can find Him most profoundly here in His Church.


This program is being presented in the Church to make it easy for us to participate in a prayerful atmosphere, and in the presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. This is a wonderful program for your whole family to prepare for Easter and enrich your faith in Jesus. You’re encouraged to invite other family members to join you.
