St. Joe’s is committed to creating a partnership with families to insure that faith within families continues to grow. We believe that a child’s relationship with Jesus begins at home. Our goal is to work with families to help reinforce a strong foundation of faith and encounter Christ through Catholic teachings.

Because of the pandemic, this ministry year will look a little different than in past years.  Kids in grades 1-6 will not be meeting in-person in small groups at St. Joe’s.  Rather, we are offering online/at home lessons, monthly Family Nights/Large Group Gatherings in the Worship Space where we are able to properly social distance, monthly Faith-n-Fun Friday Outdoor Activities for families and kids, and monthly Small Group Faith Connections Team Meetings via Zoom or Google Meet per grade so kids have the opportunity to connect with their St. Joe’s friends and adult volunteer leaders.  There will also be additional opportunities to participate in Social Justice Activities.

To stay within CDC and MN Deptartment of Health  safety guidelines, sign-up is required for most activities.  Space may be limited.  Please see the Elementary School Trail Blazers Faith Formation Schedule for more detailed information.  Please contact Kelly Thurmes at [email protected] with questions.
