Parish Needs

Covered Gathering Space

Fostering the building of community is very important to us at St. Joseph the Worker Parish. Designing an updated and covered space, utilizing our existing outdoor gathering area adjacent to our church will allow parishioners to gather and socialize after mass. We experienced the blessing of the covered school pavilion during the time our church building was not available at the beginning of the pandemic. A covered area will provide shade and allow us to hold ministry fairs, etc. without having to walk over to the hall. Let the lessons we learned from the past help us to foster a greater community in the future.

Sound System

Hearing the Word of God proclaimed is an essential part of any liturgy as this helps us on our journey of faith. The beautiful music enhances our liturgy. Wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t have to ask, “What did the lector say?” or “What did Father say?” Imagine hearing every nuance and harmony in the songs. This can be accomplished. Our sound system has served us well for many years, but like all things, it must be upgraded to keep up with the new sound systems that are constantly being improved. Your sounds systems at home and in your cars are so much better than they were 20 years ago. You can hear the difference. We can experience a great difference in church as well with an upgraded sound system.



The Psalmist tells us, “Your Word is a lamp for my feet, and a light on my path”. For all of us, the light should shine brightly in our lives, why not in our church? Lighting technology has improved over the years. We no longer use 300-watt bulbs in order to have bright light in our church. We installed 60 new LED bulbs, but we would like to take advantage of the brilliance and efficiency of the new generation of LED bulbs. This will require re-wiring every socket in the church. Not only will this be energy efficient but think of the possibilities of being able to design lighting effects for our liturgies, especially our Christmas and Easter masses. What an impact this would have on our art and environment.

A Bold Plan of Renewal

We — the Catholic faithful — are the agents of renewal for Church and society. I am grateful for this opportunity to walk alongside clergy and parishioners in strengthening our parishes and ministries, the heart of our Archdiocese.
