Serving Others

Serving God's people in our parish, our community, our country & our world 

Sunday Social Hosts

Sunday Social Hosts serve coffee, juice and pastries in the social hall to parishioners most Sundays after the 11:00 AM Mass. 

 

Individuals or families can serve in this role.  It's as easy as making a pot of coffee, setting out some snacks and doing a little clean up.

 

Please sign up for this ministry in the back of church.  For more information please see the Sunday Social instructions posted in the church kitchen or contact the parish office.

Funeral Ministry

Please notify the parish office to begin the process of funeral arrangements. 

 

At the family's request, the parish provides a luncheon following funerals held at St. Joseph.  

 

If you are interested in helping serve funeral luncheons, please contact Charlotte Bottolfson at 715-294-3798.   

Prayer Line

If you would like to have a friend, relative or yourself added to our Prayer Line, please contact:
Peggy Olson at 715-294-2796 or
Micki Baillargeon at 715-294-3320


They will help you with the process of getting your intention on the prayer line where parishoners will add their prayers to yours. 

 

Back Pack Program

In partnership with Osceola's Open Cupboard food shelf, the parish takes part in the Back Pack Program during each school year. Each family is asked to bring a box of instant oatmeal each month to help with this program. If you are able to bring in more, it is gladly accepted.

The Open Cupboard's Back Pack program provides students with a back pack of food to take home each Friday. This food helps children get the nutrition they need over the weekend when school breakfast and lunch are not accessible. 

Blessing Baskets

Each year during the Advent season, the parish supports the Open Cupboard's Blessing Basket program by donating clothing items, diapers and money for grocery gift cards.

 

Postcards listing needed gifts are posted on a bulletin board in the entry of the church.  Parishioners take the postcards, purchase the items on the card and return the items to church.  Clothing gifts are brought in wrapped packages.  Diapers and cash donations do not need to be wrapped.

 

The Open Cupboard coordinates the distribution of the gifts in the Osceola area.

 

Operation Christmas Child

Every fall, PreK - 10th grade students pack shoeboxes for children in need.  The boxes are donated to Operation Christmas Child for distribution around the world.  Shoeboxes are filled with small toys, personal care items and school supplies.
