Serving at St Josephs

Our community provides many opportunities for sharing of time and talent in service of each other and the broader community. We call each of these roles a ministry. The various ministries include assisting with organising and participating in our weekend celebrations and assistance to the needy and vulnerable in the community.

Great! Where do I sign up?

We would love to hear from you about joining a ministry. The general process will involve a volunteer orientation, followed by some training which of coursed depends on the particular ministry. You will be accompanied and supported by experienced ministers during the early part of your ministry, and will be made most welcome in your new role!
