Now Hiring @ St. Joe
Saint Joseph Parish is seeking applicants for a full-time Director of Stewardship and a part-time Youth Minister.

Good Christian stewards see the evidence of God in all things, small and large, which leads to fruits of love, trust, accountability, and generosity. The Director of Stewardship will be responsible for promoting the concept of stewardship as a way of life among our parishioners, organizing initiatives to encourage offerings of time, talent, and treasure for the work of the Lord and His Church. Qualified applicants will be practicing Catholics demonstrating a passion for cultivating Christian stewardship in the parish setting. Experience with organizing events, managing fundraisers, and recruiting and supporting volunteers and ministry leads is desired.

The Youth Minister will empower the youth of our parish to live as disciples of Christ in the world, to draw them to the life, mission, and work of the Catholic Church, and to foster their personal and spiritual growth. Saint Joseph Parish is seeking candidates who are passionate in their faith and enthusiastically committed to Youth Ministry, outreach, and leadership and are willing to serve as a spiritual leader and role model. Qualified candidates will have experience in faith formation and demonstrate an ability to plan and implement creative programming for teens.

For questions or to apply for either of these positions, please send a cover letter and résumé with references to Fr. Matt Fase, C.S.C., at

There are many activities and prayerful opportunities for you and your family to get involved, including pilgrimages, saints of the month, reflections, and more. Go to

Share the Gift of Faith with Our Children
Our Children's Faith Formation (CCD) program is currently in need of a few lead catechists and several assistants to aid in the intellectual and spiritual formation of our children. Classes are held on Sunday mornings (11:15am - 12:30pm) for children in grades pre-K through 7th grade from mid-September to May. Prior experience in the classroom is not needed; this is a beautiful opportunity to simply share your love of Christ with our children and grow in faith alongside them! The catechist assistant is a great opportunity for high school students as well (especially those in need of service hours). If you are interested in serving our parish community, or would simply like to know more about this ministry, please contact Sean Driscoll at
