Parish Communication

We would like to have better communication at the parish, and in an effort to do so, we are going to make better use of a communication platform we have, called Flocknote. Some of you may have already signed up for this when we offered access to Bishop Barron’s videos last Easter. You can sign up in one of two ways: Go to stjoepsj.flocknote.com Or text SJPSJ to 84576 on your smartphone.

We promise not to overwhelm you with messages—just the essentials. And you can unsubscribe at any time

  • Florida Respect Life Conference The 33rd Annual Florida Respect Life Conference will be on October 11-12 at the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche in St. Augustine. One of the featured speakers will be our own Bishop Bill Wack. This conference is a great opportunity to be encouraged and informed about how to support and promote the Gospel of Life. For more information, visit www.ptdiocese.org/respectlifeconference
  • School Snacks August Collection As a parish, with your help, we will support Port St Joe elementary again this year by providing individually wrapped snacks for students in need. This was a huge success last year and there is an even greater need this year. Please help by placing snacks in the marked box, at the entrance to the church, through the month of August.
  • Indoor Yard Sale The Altar Society is holding an indoor yard sale August 30th and 31st in the church hall. If you would like to donate items for our sale, we are collecting houseware items, small appliances, gently used clothing-linens-bedding, tools/outdoor equipment, holiday items, small furniture, and items for children. Cleaned items may be dropped off Monday-Thursday between 10:00am and 1:00pm in the church hall.
  • Food Pantry One of the ways St. Joseph Parish serves the community is by collecting nonperishable food items for the local food pantry. We are looking for a volunteer to bring the food items from the church to the food pantry each week. Our previous volunteer has moved out of town. If you would like to help out, let Fr. Chris know.
  • Marriage Encounter You are invited to St. Rose of Lima Parish (6451 Park Ave., Milton, FL) to join other couples from across the diocese looking to deepen their connection as spouses. Learn to communicate more effectively, build a prayer life together, grow in intimacy and dive into what God desires for your relationship. To register, go to flwc-wwme.org. For more information, contact Fr. Dennis O’Brien at 850-455-0356 or obriend@ptdiocese
  • Our Lady of Guadalupe If you have driven through Mexico Beach recently, you may have noticed some activity at the site of Our Lady of Guadalupe. For the next few years, a company that installs concrete pilings will be leasing the property, while Mexico Beach rebuilds. This will provide income for the church and the company will also take responsibility for cleaning up and maintaining the property. This is not a long-term arrangement. The church will continue to own the property for future use.
  • Catholic Renewal Conference Be renewed in the Spirit at the 38th annual diocesan renewal conference.
     » Theme: Awake and Give Praise
     » Date: September 20-22, 2019

    Speakers will include Bishop Bill Wack, Fr. Nicholas Schumm, Sr. Lucy of the Disciples of the Lord Jesus, and Fr. Mark Goring. For more info or registration, go to www.pt-dccr.org
  • New Mailing Address The church is transitioning to a new mailing address. Please address all future mail to:
    St Joseph Catholic Church
    304 Twentieth St.
    Port Saint Joe, FL 32456

    We will continue to use the old PO Box until the end of the year, but after that we will only use the street address.

  • Maintenance Needs Do you see anything around the church or hall that needs repair? Let us know! Send an email to office@stjosephpsj.org
  • Offertory Envelopes If you are not currently receiving Offertory Envelopes, and you would like to, contact the church office 850-227-1417. Envelopes will be mailed to you.
  • Can We Help? If you or someone you know needs help with meals, a visit, or anything else, let us help! Contact Rosalie Tritsch.
  • Serve at Mass: The parish is in need of more lectors and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. If you are interested, contact Fr. Chris (either by email or the office phone) so we can set up a time for training. Your service helps everyone enter more fully into the celebration of the Eucharist.
  • Volunteer Note: Every Thursday around 10:00am eastern we need folders for the Bulletins for both Our Lady and St. Josephs. Please think about joining us.
  • Food Pantry: Whenever you are grocery shopping, please add a few non-perishable items for our food basket. Don't forget the family pets also need help.
  • Flowers If you would like to commemorate a loved one and/or a special occasion with flowers on the Altar, flower envelopes are in each pew. Please put the date on the envelope you would like represented. Allow at least two weeks for preparations.

"After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples by the Sea..."  (Jn 21:1).

The Sea has often been a special place to encounter the Lord. Whether you are local, a seasonal visitor, or someone enjoying a weekend on the Gulf Coast, St. Joseph Parish is a place to encounter Jesus. Join us for Mass, Adoration, Bible Study, social events, or simply stop by to offer a prayer.
