Church Groups Making A Difference

At St. Joseph Catholic School, we are incredibly blessed to have parish groups that commit so much to us.  These groups not only raise money, but they volunteer their time and talents in countless ways.  Our parish and these groups are responsible for strengthening and funding our school.  We are forever grateful.

If you are looking for ways to support the church or school and are unable to do so monetarily, please give one of these groups a try.  Even if you are not wanting to become an official member right away, these groups, and the school, are always in need of good people to donate their time and talents.

Knights of Columbus

Our Mission:  We are Catholic men building a bridge back to faith.  There is much good and necessary work to be done in this world, and that’s what Knights do every day.  We are a Catholic, family, fraternal service organization and we provide support to the school and parish.

Catholic Women Serving

The women of Catholic Women Serving (CWS) all share the same enthusiasm towards the spirit and the goals of St. Joseph’s Church and the community.  We participate in community outreach, fundraisers, and events for the parish and school.  Giving back can be done in so many ways.  We have never been short of giving help where needed and will continue to find projects because we are Catholic Women SERVING!
