Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a registered parishioner of St. Joseph the Worker?
Send an email to our Communications Director, Gina, to set up an appointment to register. This registration appointment is required, even if you are transferring from another Diocesan parish. We want to get to know you!
How do I get a Mass card?
Stop by the parish office to schedule a Mass to be said for someone's soul or their intentions. Masses are $10. Additionally, you can have the candles on the altar burned for a certain intention for one week.
How do I acquire a letter of eligibility to be a Godparent or Confirmation sponsor?
Contact our Secretary, Anne with your name, the name of the person your are sponsoring, and the name of the church at which the Sacrament is being administered. Please note that you must be a registered, active parishioner in order to receive a letter of eligibility. If you don't come to Mass, we can't sign off that you'll make a good sponsor!
How do I get my baby baptized at St. Joe's?
If you are a registered member, contact Anne in the Parish Office with your name and phone number. She will pass it on to Deacon Butch, our baptism coordinator, who will be in touch with you to set up a date. We perform baptisms on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month after the 11:00am Mass. If you are not registered contact Gina first at email@example.com.

Where is the parish office?
The parish office is located in the building to the left of the church when you are looking at the main entrance. There is a sign on the building that says Rectory Office, and the door is right around the corner from the sign, underneath the overhang between the Office and the church.
Do you have a program for children during any of your Masses?
