Sock Drive

Again this year St. Joseph’s will be collecting socks for adults which will be given to the less fortunate. This year we are also accepting underwear for adults. We emphasize that all donations be new. For more information, please speak to Debbie Lavallee. Thank you.

Help List

To help in organizing Church events, a Help List has been set up and sent out by Debbie Lavallee to the members of the Church. This should help in knowing who to contact for help when organizing our events. Debbie will be sending it out again so please check your emails and respond in whatever way you can. Thank you for your participation.
