Charitable Activities & Social Justice Commission

Our Mission Statement:  

Confident that the Spirit of God abides with us, our Charitable Activities and Social Justice Commission aims to follow Jesus’ mandate that we be salt for our communities in family, work and citizenship.  We strive to inform and offer the challenge of living in justice and charity.  Particularly, we aim to be in solidarity with those on the margins of our society.

Faith Formation Commission

Our Mission Statement: As intentional disciples of Jesus, committed to the needs of St. Joseph Parish, we will develop, sponsor and support a wide range of opportunities and resources for parishioners of all ages.

With an evangelizing approach, we will welcome and invite all members of the community to join us in nurturing and developing a lifelong relationship with Jesus through the Sacraments, our worship, and the traditions of our Catholic faith.

The Faith Formation Commission is made up of three teams that advise, assist, and work with the directors in each of the three areas of formation in our parish: Adult, Youth, and Children. Each team has 6-8 parishioners serving three-year terms. Teams meet monthly on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6:30 – 8:00 pm in the Parish Center. If you are interested in the work of the commission we would love to hear from you. Click on the button associated with your area of interest, send us an email and we will be in touch.

Our St. Joseph Parish Spiritual Life & Worship Prayer

Lord,
We gather together this night
to bring the beauty of liturgical, eucharistic, and
sacramental celebration to the people of St. Joseph Parish.

Guide our quest
for a deeper understanding and appreciation
of the many ways we may worship you.
Let us plan and prepare spiritual celebrations
which touch our senses and open our hearts to you/

May we be attentive to our parish family
and their desire to be led into deep and full participation
in liturgical celebrations.

Grant us a deepening love for you
and open our hearts to your way.
May we become vessels of your will
and a voice to your word.

We ask this through your son, Jesus Christ,
who walks with us always, and lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever,

Amen.
