Cordele GA Obituaries and Death Notices

Parishioners reflect on history at 175th anniversary of St. Joseph Catholic Church - The Telegraph

Monday, November 07, 2016

He said it was indeed a privilege for a young girl to place the crown on a statue of Mary.Winchel, 48, has only been pastor at St. Joseph’s for four months, coming here from serving in Cordele. He said he enjoyed sitting in and hearing the memories shared by the group.“I really enjoy Macon,” he said. “It’s a beautiful, wonderful city and people in the community and at the church have been very kind. Obviously, the church here is a truly beautiful structure and brings many visitors. It’s the third building St. Joseph’s occupied, and I think through the years it’s been a place of sanctuary, a crossroads for people in their lives and travels. It’s been a center of culture and family and the big events of life and faith. The church itself is almost like a vehicle helping people in their journey toward God. It’s a safe haven and beacon in the night and we hope it always serves as a light in the world (that) people can come to and appreciate God’s beauty and get help on their journey.”Winchel said in his short time in Macon he’s grown to appreciate more and more the church’s many ministries and outreaches — such as involvement in Family Advancement Ministries, St. Vincent de Paul Society food pantry, Daybreak homeless day center and others.Connie Thuente is also an anniversary co-chairperson and said there will be a celebration reception following today’s 4:30 p.m. Mass. All events will be at the church’s Poplar Street building which, upon its 1903 dedication, church records show that The Telegraph wrote, “If architecture may be fittingly described as frozen music, St. Joseph’s Church … is a symphony.”A historical marker outside the facility tells of Macon Catholic history, which it says goes back to 1829 when Diocese of Charleston Bishop John England visited here. It notes a growing Irish Catholic community in the 1830s and the church’s first pastor coming in 1841. That was just 17 years after Macon officially became a town. Other church records say the founding congregation was 50 parishioners strong and that same year the church bought its first building, a former Presbyterian church.It was a group of Jesuits who remained in Macon after the closing of their Macon seminary in the late-1890s/early-1900s that decided the parish needed a third structure more befitting the beauty and glory of God.The group discussing memories all agreed the building was result not only of contributions from Catholics, but from a variety of Macon’s faith communities as well.“But I think the most admirable thing about this building is that it reflects the faith of people who believed their God was beautiful and magnificent,” Winchel said. “It reflects God and the lives of joy, hardship and hard work of the people who came here and who cared enough to make it beautiful.”St. Joseph Catholic ChurchAddress: 830 Poplar St., MaconPhone: 478-745-1631Leadership: The Rev.
