Outreach into the Community is more than a Scriptural mandate. It has always played an important part in the life of Saint Joseph Parish and is, in itself, a teaching tool. A parish is a community of believers dedicated to helping others. That help extends beyond the four walls of the building.
The undercroft is utilized during the school year by a pre-school. The Parish offers space as it is available to other organizations provided the intended use is consistent with established Parish guidelines.
Outreach into the Community is not limited to corporate activity. Individual parishioners volunteer to assist in local hospitals. Other parishioners are involved with Veterans groups and organizing clothing drives.
Saint Joseph Parish supports CALL Primrose’s need for non-perishable food items year arround by collecting food every month based on immediate needs. Food is delivered to CALL each month.
Outreach can take many different forms. The Parish responds to situational needs as they arise.
…Saint Joseph Parish is collecting books to send to children in the Philippines.
Please bring books suitable for grades K-12 to the parish at any time. The first shipment was sent in early October. We are collecting books now for the next shipment.
You may also donate funds designated “BOOK SHIPPING” to help with the $65 per box cost of transportation…
