Ministries and Programs

Jesus, however, called the children to himself and said, "Let the children come to me and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it." -
Luke 18:17-18

We warmly welcome children of all ages to Saint Joseph. They are an important part of our faith community. We provide several formation opportunites for children during the year and in the summertime, including:

Children's Catechetical Development (CCD)

Vacation Bible School

RCIA for Children
For children who have not been baptized in the Catholic Church

Advent Camp

In addition to the programs listed above, children are also invited to participate in Children's Liturgy of the Word at the 10:00am Mass most Sundays.

We need volunteers to teach CCD, lead Children's Liturgy of the Word, and Vacation Bible School each year. If you are interested in becoming a catechist or volunteering in another way, contact the Parish Office or indicate your interest on a Stewardship Form (available in the church).
