Archdiocesan Synod Survey

Archbishop Bernard Hebda is collecting information to guide him in meeting the needs of our archdiocese for the next 10 years. This includes listening sessions for parishioners, priests, staff and school principals. The archbishop has initiated another way to collect data that will give him more information and is asking all Parishioners of our parish to participate in a survey and encourage all members of the community to participate. Once this information is collected, it will be available to our pastor to use in our own visioning efforts. This is a great plus for St. Joseph as we continue our own visioning process for the next 10 –15 years.

The survey is available for a limited time, now through February 29.  Please click the button below to complete the survey. Paper copies are also available during this time at the parish office during the week or in the Gathering Space on weekends.

Lifeline - March 7

On Saturday, March 7 teens around the metro are gathering for Lifeline. At each event teens have the opportunity to celebrate Mass with other teens, hear speakers present age relevant topics, and jam out to some fun music. On March 7th we encourage all teens and it's a retreat night too for our 7th graders to Lifeline.  The bus leaves St. Joe's at 4:15 pm and returns by 10:15 pm. It is suggested that you eat before arriving or bring a bag dinner for the bus ride. If you have any questions please contact Gizzy Miko in the parish office or at [email protected]


Anointing Mass

Join us on Saturday, March 14th at 10:00 am for the celebration of the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick followed by refreshments.  All are welcome to pray with those who are experiencing physical, emotional, or spiritual illness.  Sacraments are meant to be celebrated within community, and you are encouraged to attend this communal celebration  and please bring family and friends with you.  Perhaps you, a loved one, or someone you care for would benefit from the healing presence of Christ and the Holy Spirit in the prayer of faith, laying on of hands and anointing with oil.  Please contact Barb Uschold Anderson, Pastoral Care Director at the parish office for any further information.

Faith Formation Family - Hospitality Greeter Ministry

It has been said often by new parish members that they feel “welcome” here at St Joseph of the Lakes.  That is one of the greatest compliments we can receive. Our Hospitality Ministry plays an important role in this compliment and the Liturgy Commission would like to enhance this ministry with a new Hospitality Greeter.

We are inviting individuals and families to sign up and take a turn as a Hospitality Greeter for a Mass. Your “job” will be simple! You will stand in our gathering space and extend a friendly greeting to those arriving for Mass. When Mass begins, you will find a seat in the worship space to participate in the liturgy.  After Communion is completed, the Greeters will then assist the Hospitality Ministers with the distribution of the bulletins as our parish members leave.  We see this as an opportunity to show our love of Jesus Christ to one another in the simple act of giving special attention to our parish members and visitors.

We will be asking our Faith Formation families to participate so that each week we will have different families taking turns and involving their children. We also would like YOU to help us out and continue to make St Joe’s a welcoming parish that is alive with the Spirit.
