In an effort to combat the spread of the Novel Corona Virus, non-sacramental gatherings at St. Joseph Catholic Church are suspended until further notice.
Respect Life makes parishioners more aware of pro-life issues and needs. Respect Life promotes and participates in the Right to Life Chain the first Sunday of October located in front of St. Joseph Church. A baby bottle promotion is held in the spring as a fundraiser to support First Way Life Center in Johnsburg. A Spiritual Adoption Program has been held and concluded with a baby shower to collect items needed for new mothers at First Way. Each year this ministry supports the Right to Life booth at the McHenry County Fair in Woodstock, IL.
Respect Life relies on the support from parish representatives from the adult and youth groups, religious education team, & clergy. With their assistance, monthly Respect Life banners have been purchased and displayed in front of our church.
