St. Joseph Service Day

St. Joseph Day of Service and Celebration 


Support Service Day with a Donation

Our Parish Service Day was such a success last year, we will be organizing it again. This year, our Service Day will be on Saturday March 18, 2023. We have a team of wonderful parish volunteers who are working with various organizations to set up projects, schedules, and sites.

Following a breakfast and blessing, parishioners will participate in projects, both on and off campus, culminating with the vigil Mass at 5PM!  It is a day designed for the entire community to put our Catholic values into action.
