Our target date is here but it is not too late to help us reach our goal! Drop your pledge forms at Mass or at the parish or school office!
We are almost there and we need your help! Our goal is to secure $900,000 in pledges so that we can begin the final phase of our campaign projects -- a school addition with classrooms and a gymnasium, and improved green space -- that will serve our parish in numerous ways for generations to come!
The generations of Saint Joe faithful that have come before us have left us a great legacy. I feel that we have been blessed in many ways, and I give thanks to God. I pray that each of you, too, will see God’s glory in the work before us, be inspired by the underlying mission we seek to strengthen, and find within yourselves a desire to give in gratitude.
Thank you to those who have already stepped up with great enthusiasm towards this initiative! I continue to be humbled by the generosity within our Saint Joseph community. Know that I welcome any questions you might have as you prayerfully consider your support. For your convenience, you may download a pledge form here. Also see our frequently asked questions.
