New this year! We are asking each family to help greet, set up and serve the breakfast. Mrs. Herried will still prepare, but would like help with set up. Each family would only need to do so once throughout the year. Use the link below to sign up.

  • 8:30-9:00 light breakfast and community time
  • 9:00-10:15 Age specific lessons (K4-10th grade kids disperse to school classrooms, adults stay in the parish hall)
  • 10:15 meet back in parish hall and head to Mass together (that is if you didn't go already! :)

Note from Annie

With a heavy heart, but filled with hope, I want to let you all know that I have resigned as St. Joe's Child and Family Ministry Director, but will continue on in planning for a successful year and transitioning the new director. As many of you know, my husband and I have three active kids and I decided that I'd like to be spending more time at home with them. St. Joe's is on the search for a replacement and I am confident that God has great plans for sending the person this parish needs to lead our kids in their love of Jesus. If you are interested in the position, know someone who might be, or have more questions, please feel free to reach out to me. I plan on continuing to be a catechist and walking with each of you as we strive to prepare our kids for heaven.
