Did you know that St. Joseph the Worker is the Patron Saint of Carpenters?
Habitat for Humanity has created a new endeavor called The St. Joseph Mentors, to honor the Patron Saint of Carpenters and the site of original St. Joseph the Worker parish, which is across the street from the 2019 Catholic Build (that some parishioners have helped build over the past year!).
How can you get involved?
Habitat is offering six Catholic Build days in June to intergenerational crews. If you are older and want to teach and inspire the next generation of Catholic volunteers, please sign up! If you are 16 years of age or older and want to learn a bit about construction and help families in need at the same time, sign up! Contact Amy Oatley for dates and more details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need your help!
Our Parish Health Ministry & Medical Supply Closet Ministry are both in need of new members and leadership. Please see below to learn more about each of these ministries or contact the parish office at email@example.com.
Parish Health Ministry
WHO: We are looking for Nurses, EMTs, Doctors, anyone who is qualified in the medical field to assist us with our monthly blood pressure clinics.
WHAT: Schedule, organize and manage blood pressure clinics at our parish after Masses seven times per year.
WHEN: You may schedule which weekend work best for you and for the ministry. You personally do not have to serve each time. Our hope is to have enough ministers for this ministry that they only must serve once or twice per year.
HOW: Are you interested in helping? Please contact Lynn Weber at 616-469-9393 or firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the parish office.
Medical Equipment Closet Ministry
WHO: We are looking for Nurses, EMTs, Doctors, anyone who is qualified in the medical field to assist us in managing our medical equipment closet.
WHAT: Our Medical Equipment Closet is a collection of medical equipment that can be borrowed by our parishioners. Everything from crutches to bath chairs to walkers and wheel chairs. The ministry is designed to allow our parishioners to borrow the items instead of purchasing them when insurance does not cover the entire cost. Ministers of this ministry will organize, maintain and distribute the equipment we have available.
WHEN: Times vary depending on need, however as a minister of this ministry you would be able to schedule what time works best for you and the parishioner to meet.
HOW: Are you interested in helping? Please contact Maureen Gaynor at email@example.com or contact the parish office.
