Blessings to Barb Uschold Anderson & Scott Frieler

Our Director of Pastoral Care, Barb Uschold Anderson is leaving St. Joe's and returning to St. Pascal’s in St. Paul to continue her Pastoral Care ministry there in July. She has lovingly served St. Joe’s for nearly nine years and has brought to us new ministries such as the Vagabond Singers, Love Bears and carried out many ongoing ministries such as anointing Masses, women’s retreats, prayer shawls, homebound communion, funeral planning and more. She most recently led a pilgrimage to Ireland.

Our Director of Religious Education and coordinator of Middle School and High School Faith Formation, Scott Frieler, will be leaving at the end of June to begin a new position in the St. Cloud Diocese. We are grateful for Scott’s service to our parish families these past two years as he led the Confirmation program during the challenging time of Covid, and took over the coordination of First Eucharist and First Reconciliation this past spring. We wish him well as he continues to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ closer to home. Scott's last day is Thursday, June 30.

We wish Barb & Scott all the best as they continue their service and ministries in new settings
