     Attention Parish High School Students

Our next Anointed session is Saturday, March 30th!  We have a group of students going to Swaddlers and another group helping with our First Communion Retreat!  Sign Up Here!

Anointed is a Saint Joseph Parish ministry geared toward students who have been confirmed (Saint Joseph parishioner isn't necessary).  We plan on meeting 5 times per year, typically on the 5th Saturday of the month.  We will meet from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the West Campus Meeting Room.  After gathering together and discussing social issues, we will go out into the community and serve others.  After the service portion is done, we will re-group back at Saint Joe's to discuss our experience and pray for those we have served.  

Breakthrough is a ministry open to youth in grades 6-8.  We meet on Sundays at 11:30 a.m. outside the OYCF office.  During our meetings we discuss Scripture and the way in which the word of God can help us in our daily lives.  We have fun together and we share a snack.  SIGN UP HERE!
