Parish Picnic - August 19

The Saint Joseph Parish Picnic takes place Saturday, August 19, at 5pm, following a special 4:00pm Vigil Mass (there will be no 5pm Mass that day). This year's picnic will feature games and relay races for all ages! Bring your picnic blankets to dine on the infield and get the best view of the races! Dinner includes burgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, and fixin's. Beer provided by Corby's Irish Pub. Tickets are $5/person or $25/family (2 and under free). Tickets will be available at the gate.

Please note: the picnic will take place on our parish green behind the church. Please enter the picnic through the gate on St. Louis Blvd. across from the Ackles Parish Life Center. Parking is available at the Ackles Center and in our North Lot across LaSalle from the church. There will be no physical tickets for the event this year; a guest list will be at the entrance for those paid in advance.

CCD Registration

As part of our parish’s educational mission, the Children’s Catechetical Development Program (or CCD) provides formation and sacramental preparation for students in grades Pre-K through 8th who attend non-Catholic schools. Families wishing for their children to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, or Confirmation must enroll their children in CCD if they are not in Catholic school. Preparation for Confirmation begins in 7th grade and continues through the fall of 8th grade. Registration fees for CCD are $75 for one child, $125 for two children, and $150 for three or more. This fee helps cover the cost of textbooks and teaching materials. If you need financial assistance, please contact the Parish Office. Sessions begin Sunday, September 10, in the Ackles Parish Life Center. Classes meet on Sundays at 8:40am to 9:45am from September to May. Register now using our online form.
