Opportunities for Service

Ministry or ‘service' is the heart of what we do as a People of God. Parishioners are encouraged to engage in service to the parish and local community.
 
See A Place for You: the St. Joseph Ministry Booklet for descriptions on all of the different ministries that make St. Joseph's a vibrant parish! Once you've taken a look at the book, tell us how you'd like to get involved! Click for a Time and Talent Commitment Form to sign up or to be contacted with more information about a ministry.
