Ministry

Getting Involved in Our Parish

 

Parish Council

 It is not a priest, professional, or program that makes a parish thrive, it's the people. We are to be about something, our lives are meant to be lived for something, and building this parish up is the way we can go about giving  our lives over to our God. Our parish council will consist of several mission chairs who will work  to keep the parish as a whole on its larger mission to bring all people to Jesus Christ.   The mission chairs will consist of evangelization, outreach, education, stewardship, and facility development.  The mission chairs will work closely with their parish staff counterpart and any necessary subcommittee to keep every aspect of the parish united in governance and mission. 

Additional Information to be posted as available.

Outreach

Our Outreach extends from Right to Life to Jail Ministry, from collecting for local agencies to supporting the poor in Haiti.  Learn more about how you can involved by clicking below.

Religious Education

Education of our Faith should begin in the early years of life and should begin in the home. We learn as children from our parents, siblings, extended family and community. As Catholic leaders in our community, St. Joseph offers many programs to foster the spiritual growth of youth. Click below to learn about available options for you and your family.

Jail Ministry

  • The Jail Ministry Program at Catholic Charities strives to meet the spiritual needs of all who are impacted by the criminal justice process. We work with people who are incarcerated or about to be released from jail or prison, families and friends of the incarcerated, and victims of crime. We emphasize justice and mercy for everyone in our work. We are concerned about the effects of crime and punishment in our society and advocate for justice in these areas, promoting responsibility, rehabilitation, and restoration.

  • Catholic Charities staff works in partnership with agencies, correctional facilities, and volunteers to develop and support appropriate programs for those who are impacted by the effects of crime and punishment.

  • If you have a loved one that is incarcerated, we invite you to attend a monthly support group for Friends and Family of the Incarcerated. This is an opportunity to share and offer support in a safe and confidential environment.
