Prayer of the Faithful Writers

At each of our Eucharistic celebrations, we raise up our prayers and petitions to the Lord that he might hear the cry of his people. At Saint Joseph Parish, a group of trained parishioners compose these petitions to our Lord each week so that it may truly be the "prayer of the faithful."

If you would like to participate in this ministry, please contact the Director of Music and Liturgy.

Scheduling Ministers

We use Ministry Scheduler Pro (MSP) to schedule all of our liturgical ministers, though the Prayer of the Faithful Writers are not published publicly. MSP has an online component, which allows ministers to input their serving preferences including dates that they are unable to serve, preferred Masses, and family scheduling options. Ministers can also request subs online if they are unable to serve when schedule.

MSP Web Terminal >

Here you can update your profile, request substitutes or respond to sub requests.

Note that it is very important to request a substitute if you are unable to serve during your scheduled Masses.
