Additional Opportunities for Interactive Prayer

St. Joseph’s of the Lakes offers the following online services to those who wish to participate interactively in worship services and Holy Week events using a video-conferencing system.

Having an internet-connected device (computer, cell phone, or tablet), an email account and a desire to actively worship is all that’s needed. If you are interested please send an email to [email protected] Usually a day or so before the worship or prayer session starts, you will receive an email invite with an active link from [email protected] To improve security, the email will have a short personal message stating the purpose of the Zoom session with a reference to St. Joseph’s of the Lakes.

A few minutes before the session starts, click on the link. If Zoom is not installed, it will do so, after which you will be asked to join the session. That’s all there’s to it.
