If you have a prayer request for St. Joseph's Prayer Chain, please call or email Julie Winner. Thank you.
Communion to the homebound
Do you have a family member who is not able to attend Mass and receive communion? St. Joseph's Church has Ministers of the Eucharist that go to the homebound. They will read scripture, pray and distribute communion to your loved one. Please call Elizabeth at the parish office at 843-7021 and she will arrange this for you.
