March For Life is Friday, January 19.
Join us, as we head to Washington DC to march with thousands of others who believe in the value and diginity of Life. We are meeting at St Joseph’s at 6:15 for a 6:30 departure via bus. Please download the MARCH FOR LIFE Permission Form 2018 and return it to the office by January 15.
I’m excited to announce that St Joseph’s parish is once again a Life Teen parish. We alternate LIFE Nights and EDGE nights every Sunday night. Beginning with dinner in the cafeteria at 5:00 and then moving to the PMC. LIFE Nights will be High School Youth and EDGE Nights will be Middle School Youth.
If you know someone who is interested in attending LIFE Teen or wants to stay informed of happenings, encourage them to sign up by texting “stjyouth” to the number 84576.
And of course, please continue to pray for us.

We are currently looking for help in the following areas:
- Prayer – The best and most effective way to help, is prayer. Please remember teens everywhere, especially those from our parish whom you may or may nor know in your prayers.
- Core Team – A relational ministry for those a year or more out of high school. If you love God, have a heart for teens, and find yourself praying about them, God may be calling you to work with them. They will be the heart that keeps this ministry pumping.
- Kitchen Crew – We are looking to form three or four dinner teams who alternate each week to feed the teens and core. If you love to cook, clean, serve, organize, or just want to be part of the coolest parents at St Josephs, this could be for you. They’ll help behind the scenes, so don’t worry about invading your teen’s space.
If you’d like to help with any of the above or want to help, but don’t know where you best fit, contact our Youth Minister, Allen Austin, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
