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

  • Altar Servers There will be an altar server training and mini-retreat on Saturday, September 28, from noon to about 4:00. This is for current and new altar servers. If your child has completed the third grade and made their first communion, they are invited to come. Lunch will be provided. For more info, contact Carolyn Williams. RSVP by September 27 so we know how much lunch to prepare.
  • Get Fed at St. Joseph We are beginning something new this October: we will be offering faith formation for adults and children on the same night: Wednesday night. Dinner will be offered for free. We will follow dinner with a talk and small group discussion (for adults) or religious educations (for children and youth).
    We’re doing this for a few reasons:
     » In the past, we have offered adult faith formation on Thursdays. But a lot of community events often happen on Thursdays and conflict with this. In Port St. Joe, Wednesday night is often the night churches have mid-week activities.
     » It creates an opportunity for parishioners of all ages to be formed in the faith and connect more with fellow parishioners. In the past, we have not have opportunities — specifically for parents of younger children to grow in their faith—and hopefully this will address that.
     » We want invite more people to our parish: both inactive Catholics and non- Catholics. Sunday Mass is not always the best place to invite someone to first encounter the faith, so this will be an opportunity for people to encounter the faith and the parish. Inviting a friend to this is an easy opportunity for evangelization. The first night for this will be October 9 at 6:00pm, in the parish hall. Come and get fed, both physically and spiritually!
  • 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.
