SMART SHOPPER CARDS – DEBIT CARDS FOR HANNAFORD, SHOP RITE AND STOP & SHOP: Envelopes are available in the Church for parishioners to obtain Smart Shopper Cards. Parishioners desiring a card(s) please complete the directions given on the envelope. Please deposit the envelope in the box located in the front vestibule of the church. The envelopes containing your order will be filled on Mondays and will be available for pick-up at the Parish Office from Tuesday to Friday (9:30 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.) or they may be picked up in the front vestibule of the Church the following weekend after the Masses. Smart Shopper Cards will continue to be available at the Parish Office during office hours. For every one hundred dollar ($100) smart shopper card used, the parish receives five dollars ($5.00) This is a wonderful contribution to our church at no cost to those who use the smart shopper card. The cards are available in $20, $50 & $100 amounts. The purchase of Smart Shopper Cards are not only available to all our parishioners but for everyone who would like one.  The cards can also be given as gifts. Imagine the benefit to the parish if all our parishioners were to purchase their food by using a Smart Shopper Card. 




PARISH PAY PROGRAMEASY AS 1, 2, 3!  This automated Giving Program is now available to parishioners who would like to use it.  You no longer have to be concerned about catching-up missed offertory donations, and allows St. Joseph’s to better project its monthly budget to ensure wise allocation of resources.  Parish Pay will collect monthly contributions from your checking, saving, or credit card account.  There is NO cost to participate in the program.  Please go to to enroll on line. Please be sure to have all your information ready to input, as well as your envelope number.

ARE YOU REGISTERED IN THE PARISH?  DO YOU RECEIVE ENVELOPES?  One way to find out is with a phone call to the Parish Office at 255-5635, X101.  All parishioners who attend on a regular basis should be registered, as well as any family participating in the Religious Education Program, or you are sending your children to an area Catholic School.  We are in the process of updating our records and we would like to be sure everyone is a registered parishioner.

INVITATION - BRING TO CHURCH A NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEM OR A MONEY DONATION FOR FOOD:  place the food item in boxes located in the vestibules of the church or the money donation for food in the collection basket clearly marked For Food. A representative number food items will be brought to the altar at the presentation of gifts time of Mass. Food pantries are experiencing a shortage of food including our Parish Food Pantry. Whatever help you can give will be appreciated greatly.
