To help parishioners and our neighbors prepare their hearts for Christmas, St. Joseph Parish has developed ADVENT-ure, an Advent program composed of a variety of activities for all ages. Participate in one, two, three, or all activities… whatever suits your schedule. Participate how you want and when you want.
