We each have a part to play in making St Joseph’s a welcoming and inclusive community. A place that we’re all proud to be a part of and where we all feel valued and safe.

Get involved

As well as worshipping here, there are plenty of ways to take part in parish life. From playing a bigger role in our services, to volunteering each week at the food pantry. Share your talents and help build our vibrant, active Church.

Liturgies

 

Lector or Eucharistic Minister

Serve as a lector to proclaim God’s Word in the Mass and to announce the intentions of the community in our prayer. 

What a great privilege to help distribute Holy Communion in the Mass as a eucharistic minister and to bring the Blessed Sacrament to the sick and the homebound. If you're interested, please speak with Father Nolan.  

Become an Usher

Play an active part in helping our services run smoothly. We’re always looking for ushers who can welcome people to the service and help them find a seat, or take up the collection too. To take part, please contact the Parish Office. 

Altar Service

The altar server has an important role in every service, assisting the priest. If you’ve taken your First Communion, then you’re welcome to take part. Just speak to Kevin Noyola in the rectory to take part.

 
 

Volunteer with us

Whatever your skills or passion, we run multiple programs that you can help run at St Joesph's.

The Food Pantry 

Every Saturday we provide groceries, supplies and clothing to those who need a little extra help. There's also a sandwich and a coffee waiting for those of you who are visiting (although this is on a first come first served basis). 

We’ve got an amazing team of passionate volunteers who help to pack the grocery bags each week. If you’ve got some free time, enjoy working in a team, and can bring a cheery, helpful attitude to our project, we’d love to have you on board.


Teaching

Share your knowledge and volunteer to lead one of our instructional programs. Whatever your skills or passion, there are multiple courses you can help to run. 

Take a lead on our after school program for children:  Catechism for our school children, ESL (English as a Second Language), and RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) where we prepare adults to take the Holy Sacraments and learn more about our faith.
