Roof Appeal

St. Joseph Parish needs to replace the roof this summer. Please prayerfully consider contributing to cover the cost of the roof, in order to help defray our need to take on additional debt. Contribute by going to Online Giving and choose the account "Roof Appeal":

As Father Todd announced at all Masses this weekend, the church roof will need to be replaced this summer. The roof is well past its end of life, and continued patching may not prevent all water damage; if we don't replace it, we risk further damage to our building structure. While we've set aside savings for events like this, our recent collections decline (and projected investments in our ministries and deferred maintenance) are also reducing our cash balance, so we'll take on debt to pay for the roof. For this month of March, we're asking all parishioners to prayerfully consider how much you can contribute towards the cost of our church roof. Any donations will reduce our need to take on additional debt at the parish. -from the parish bulletin (3/11/18)
