"There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone."
1 Corinthians 12:4-6
Bring Your Faith to Life ~ Join a Parish Group!
The heart of the parish is the community, and at St. Joseph's we are proud to have a vibrant, welcoming parish and many active groups. On the left is a list of many of the groups that have been created by our community, whether they are focused on supporting one another or minister to others or do volunteer work. Each group has additional information and someone you may contact if interested in joining (or you may contact the Parish Office at 330-274-2253).
Time, Talent & Treasure
It is each person's responsibility to allocate his or her time properly to have time to work, to rest, to play and to pray. The way we choose to use our time indicates our progress in a life of Christian discipleship. When we volunteer to help others by sharing our talents with them, we give them something of ourselves, an intimate sharing of who we are for the good of others. We are asked to care for and share our treasure for it is a gift from God. Therefore, giving money is good for the soul and because we need to return thanks to a loving God for all the many blessings each of us has received.
St. Joseph Parish offers many different opportunities for returning our gifts of time and talent to God. As stewards of God-given skills and abilities, volunteering in a ministry or organization provides a way to thank God, share our faith with others, and enhance our community. If you would like to become involved in the life of St. Joseph Parish, please contact the Parish Office (330-274-2253).
