Why Give? How do we keep the good works of our active parishes going? St. Joseph Parish and St. Francis of Assisi are very active parishes with a busy staff and many parishioners volunteering to provide services to our children, adults, home bound, the needy and many others. Our weekly collections only help to provide these services with financial support for wages for our staff and for the maintenance of our “mature” buildings. However, weekly collections do not cover all of our expenses. We have a pressing financial need for your help to keep everything going.
