Our community is excited to participate alongside all parishes, missions and Catholic centers in the Archdiocese to strengthen and renew our Church for the future. Please continue reading to learn how this campaign will benefit us.
In 1919, when a handful of families sacrificed to establish St. Joseph, they also blessed us with a legacy to build upon and celebrate.
Through God’s grace, we have grown from a small faith community into a welcoming parish of 3,400 families. We have created a vibrant, active, and dynamic place for people of all ages to grow in their faith, serve others, and share the Good News as they connect with Christ, one another, and those in need.
We are now launching the Called to Renew campaign alongside every parish in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and ask God to bless this ambitious effort. Our campaign will allow us to address the needs of parishioners and St. Joseph, ensuring future generations may continue to gather, worship, and create lasting friendships.
The goal for our campaign is $700,000, of which 50 percent will remain at our parish to address the needs detailed on the following page. We will also retain 100 percent of the funds we collect over our goal.
I am asking you, and every member of our parish, to make a gift from the heart. In turn, I, as your pastor and fellow parishioner, will also make a sacrificial pledge. Before you determine your pledge, please prayerfully consider the generosity God has shown you, and the importance of the mission we have been given at St. Joseph.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
The church has not been painted in many years. Repainting the interior and exterior will better reflect the beauty of the Word proclaimed in our worship space.
Our sound system is outdated, and many parishioners have difficulty hearing the Word of God. Installing a new sound system will ensure all are able to participate during Mass.
Our parish could benefit by hiring personnel for certain key areas of parish life. This could include someone to serve in our ministry to young adults and youth, plus an on-site employee for cleaning, maintenance, and upkeep of the property. We could also benefit by having at least a part-time business manager and/or accountant to help with the administrative side of parish life.
Our parking lot provides a poor first impression of our campus. Repaving the parking lot, as well as improving the landscaping, will create a more welcoming environment.
We definitely need to improve our landscaping. This will make our parish more beautiful and will create a more welcoming environment for everyone. We also need to repave our parking lots.
