altar server training
On Saturday, August 20th at 10 am, St. Joseph Catholic Church will host an Altar Server training class for current and new servers. The training will be in the church.
This ministry seeks to encourage the youth of our parish to fully engage in our faith through their service to the Church as altar servers. Serving at the altar gives youth a hands-on, personal experience of God's work in the liturgy.
Requirements are that the children have received their First Communion. Children over the age of 14 will need to complete the Safe Environment Training and Fingerprinting. Please contact the Church office, 863-294-3144, with any questions.

This upcoming Kick-off, August 17th, will be a cardboard battle to be remembered! You will not only build your own set of (cardboard) armor, you will also face off against each other in battle. Will your armor stand up to the test?!
Come join us as we reveal the new annual theme for youth ministry, and delve into this seasons curriculum called the Artist! In the Artist, we’ll tackle questions like: Who is God? Can we even know if God is real? What proof is there that God exists? What does this mean for my life?Journey with us as we navigate these questions and more!
August 17, at 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM (kick-off - Box/Cardboard War) in Family Life Center Room 3
August 31st, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM in Family Life Center Room 3
