We sew, knit, crochet, cross stitch, craft items, and make gift baskets to help the poor and needy.  We work from our own homes and/or meet as a group on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 10 am.  We gather to share our ideas, work on our current projects, have “show ‘n tell” and share lunch together.

Our organization provides handmade items for babies, children, teens, adults and the elderly. We make lap blankets, afghans, quilts, toys, tablecloths, curtains, pillowcases, crocheted angels, wheelchair/walker bags, wheelchair pads, gift bags, dish cloths, pillows and many other items.

If you want to give of your time but do not know how to crochet or knit, we will teach you.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide warmth and comfort to the poor from newborn to the elderly.  By doing so, we offer to God the best of our time and talents.

Youth Ministry

St. Joseph Life Teen Mission is a dynamic outreaching ministry. We are dedicated to seeking out teens and offering them the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with Christ. Our ministry focuses on the aspect of relationship. As friendships are made, trust and truth can more effectively be grasped. The fullness of our Catholic faith is what Life Teen offers the teens of our parish.
The glory of God is man fully alive. – St. Iranius of Lyons
