Mission of SJHC Parish

Baptismal Preparation

In preparation for your child’s baptism, Fr. Bill will have instructional meetings once a month. This prep meeting is for those parents who have not attended Baptism preparation within the last 3-4 years or who have never attended the instructional meeting. You only need to attend one session and you do not have to wait until your baby is born. This will give you the opportunity to have all of your questions answered, inform you of any requirements, as well as refresh your understanding of the sacrament. The Baptismal Preparation meetings are generally held on the third or fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Community Room. Please call the parish office at 639-3748 if you plan on attending.

Food Bank Update

During these difficult times when many are being laid off or working less hours, please remember that the food bank is still up and running. The only difference is that there is drive-up service at the back of the parish building, rather than coming through the building. Times are Thursdays from 10-12 Noon and Saturdays from 9-10 AM. We are closed on holidays and weekends that fall near a holiday.

Full-Time Custodian Needed

This person maintains all parish buildings and grounds.  The Parish provides an hourly wage as well as the Diocesan Benefits Package.
