Whichever mass you attend, make sure to stop and introduce yourself.
Sunday morning we offer a special Children’s Liturgy of the Word for our “Little Children of God.” Children aged four – six are called forward and sent forth with adult leaders to hear the gospel geared for their understanding; linked with a simple craft or activity. Children return to their families at the Holy, Holy. Adult volunteers are always welcomed to get involved with this ministry.
Our children’s Choir sings at the 9:00 or 10:30 am mass Two Sundays a month. Children in grades 2 – 6 are invited to join.
Teens in grades 7 – 12 are invited to become Jr. Lectors. They are trained to proclaim the Word of God for the assembly. Children in 5th grade and up are welcome to join our team of altar servers, training is provided throughout the year. Our Usher ministry also invites young people to assist.
Let’s not forget the rest of the family. Become a Lector, Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, an Usher or a Greeter, or join the choir. These are just a few ways in which you can be involved in St. Joseph’s Parish.
