Christian Service Ministries:

Working from Home: Those who love to cook are needed to prepare meals for parishioners in crisis or to provide food for funeral luncheons. There are also opportunities to join our "prayer connection", send card to the ill on our sick list and other special ministries you can do from home.

Communication and Relationship: Assistance is often needed for bereavement ministry, peace and social justice concerns, Hope Springs mentoring and the local walk-in ministry.

Hands on Activities: Volunteers are regularly needed for serving at funeral luncheons, ESSE (adult day care), the food pantry, PADS (homeless shelter), St. Vincent de Paul truck collections, Prescription collections for Medical Missions, and Ministry of Care.

Building Community and Fellowship: St. Joseph Employment Ministry, and fellowship on Tuesday/Wednesday mornings in the Parish Life Center following 8am Mass.

Assisting The Christian Service Office: Regular mailings, sending special greeting or anniversary cards are among some of the numerous tasks that volunteers are needed for assistance.
