We Need Your Help to Update Our Information

Here at St. Joe’s we have A LOT of outdated information, especially phone numbers and emails, for our parishioners and we need you to help update it! Especially as many of us have exchanged land lines for cell phones. We appreciate the updated information and if you don’t want us to publish a cell phone number—we accommodate that wish and it will not be listed in our phone book but available to parish staff!

The next parish phone book to start production in May so updated information is greatly appreciated! Please send us an email at: [email protected] or give us a call at 651.784.3015 to make sure we have the most current information for you and your family.
