There are so many great reasons to love St. Joseph's Church. For this post, I am going to narrow my reasons down to 3, a sort of Top 3 list, so to speak.
One aspect I have always liked about our parish is all of the opportunities to get involved. I think of St. Joe as running on volunteer power. There are always chances to volunteer. I like to know that what I am doing is making a difference, and I feel that at St. Joe. When I volunteer, I don’t feel like I’m just taking up space or showing up for appearances, I always feel like I’m accomplishing something.
Another of my favorite things about St. Joseph’s Church is the feeling of community. I think part of it is because we are a small church, so there is opportunity to meet and get to know most of the parishioners. I think another part is the way we work together to provide for the needs of the parish. No one ever shied away from asking me to get involved, and I love the opportunity to serve as part of the St. Joe community.
My other big reason for loving St. Joe is that I very much enjoy listening to Fr. Rob’s sermons. Not only is he very knowledgeable, but he shares that knowledge in a way that is easy to understand. In addition, he seems to dig deep into himself to bring out personal experiences to relate how the Gospel impacted him and impacts us all in a very meaningful way.
