So far we have raised $6,786 leaving a balance of $24,704. OLL has an assessment of $29,658. So far we have raised $3,948, leaving a balance of $25,710.

 

Communication Center

If you are looking for past bulletins, lay ministry schedules, Faith Formation schedules, etc., you can always find them in our communication center located by the bathrooms in the gathering area.

 

Like” our Facebook Page

Don’t forget to “like” St. Joseph’s Facebook Page.  Our Facebook page updates events and other activities going on in the parish.  It is also useful to parents and youth of the Faith Formation page as we put schedule changes on Facebook.

 

Hall & Table Rental

If you need to borrow tables from the church for garage sales or other events, please call in advance to reserve them.  They are available for a free-will  offering.  The social hall is also available to rent for graduation & other parties. Ask for JoAnne 715-268-7717.

 

SJ Store

Do you need a Bible? Or maybe a small gift? We have a small store inside the parish office that might have what you need. The office is open Monday-Friday from 9am-5 pm.

 

Children’s Bulletin

St. Joseph now provides Children’s Bulletins that include fun activities. There is a basket with the bulletins and crayons in the gathering area before you enter the church. Please grab one before Mass if your children need something to occupy themselves.

 

E- Offering

Online credit card donations are accepted at St. Joseph Church.  If you would like to make a donation by credit card, go to our website www.stjosephamery.org.  Once you are on the homepage click the tab that says donations on the top right screen.  If you have any questions contact St. Joseph office.

 

St. Joseph Library

St. Joseph now has a functioning library.  The library is located in the hospitality room off of the gathering area.  If you would like to check out a book please sign it out in the book on the podium and return the book in the basket next to the podium. 

Backpack Fundraiser

The Salvation Army sends backpacks home to students in need. They collect personal hygiene products to be added to the backpacks. The thought behind the drive is that children are being targeted for bullying in schools because of personal hygiene issues. For the month of November we will collect Bar Soap. They put these products in their backpacks during the year.  We will have a basket for the collection by the bulletin board in the gathering area. 

 

Mass Videographer

Our Mass is broadcasted each week on local access cable channel 6 compliments of Northwest Communication. We have dedicated couples and individuals who videotape the Mass each week. We need more help. Please prayerfully consider becoming a Mass Videographer and call the parish office to volunteer.

Rummage Sale

We are in need of a new Chairperson for our annual Rummage Sale in May. Marita is willing to help out whoever takes it over. Please let the office know if you are interested.
