St. Joseph Parish consciously tries to implement the three components of Catholic Evangelization as outlined in Pope Paul VI’s Encyclical on Evangelization: to nurture the faith of practicing Catholics, to invite back those Catholics who are no longer active in the communal participation of the faith, and to reach out to those who have no spiritual home.
• Attempts to nurture the faith of active parishioners include:
Days of Recollection
Special Lenten programs
Small group scripture study
Small group spiritual renewal programs
• Efforts to invite back those who are no longer active in the communal practice of the faith include:
Personal Meetings with Parish Staff
• Reaching out to those who have no spiritual home includes:
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
Particular seasonal outreaches
All programs and events offered through the Archdiocesan Office of Evangelization are coordinated by the Parish Staff.
