Friends of the Carpenter

We are a men’s fellowship group who come together on a weekly basis to share our attempts to grow in the presence of God so as to live out our lives as Christian men within a secular world.

We meet every Saturday morning from 7:30am to 9am in Nolan Hall (Church basement). Coffee is provided and occasionally, as well as donuts or bagels.

On the 3rd Saturday of the month we sit down to a breakfast of bacon and eggs at 9am.

Our journey to the Lord can often seem like a lonely one. Coming together and sharing that journey can give us the hope and the courage to persevere and grow in the Love of our Savior. We invite all men of good will to come in, kick the tires, take us for a test drive and see where the Lord is leading! You might just be surprised!

Grounds Keeping

Here at St. Joseph’s we enjoy our parishioner’s green thumbs.  As we all know, keeping our gardens looking good takes a lot of work.  There is weeding and planting that takes much of the warmer months.  If you enjoy the outdoors and have a green thumb please contact Diane 330-929-5541.

 

Holy Name Society

Holy Name is the men’s organization for our parish which meets on the first Thursday of each month.  They provide the meat for the parish picnic, set up the Nativity scenes at Christmas and provide refreshments for the Pet Blessing.  Holy Name also provides the prayer books and rosaries for the First Communicants and support the youth group in their needs.   On Friday nights during the summer, they park cars at the school lot for a fundraiser. 

The Holy Name Society promotes reverence and devotion for the Holy Names of God and Jesus and the personal sanctification and holiness of its members. Members work in union to build the kingdom of God by teaching, spreading, and defending the Catholic faith.
