This year we are using a new program called Y-Disciple that will focus on forming community and growing in faith within small group communities. Meeting times vary to accommodate different schedules.

Don’t miss out on our upcoming Strengths Retreat on Feb. 9th! Take the Cliftons Strengths assessment to discover your top five strengths, and then join us for a mini afternoon retreat (11:30AM-4:00PM) to learn more about how to utilize your particular strengths. This is a great addition to college applications and resumes! Click here for a registration form, and turn it in to Carlie by Jan. 20th.

Please contact Carlie Betz if you have any questions or would like further information: (425) 392-5516 x226 or by email.

If you'd like to help to offset the costs and provide sponsorship for a teen, please contact Carlie in the parish office. Purchasing Brown Bear Car wash tickets is a great way to contribute! Contact Carlie by email and purchase at the following prices: $8 each, a pack of 5 tickets for $35, or a pack of ten tickets for $60. Thank you so much for your continued support of the youth of St. Joseph parish!
