A Generous Community

The mission of Saint Joseph Parish and School is greatly assisted through the involvement of active, dedicated individuals in the life of the Parish. Financial gifts so generously made to the Offertory, the Parish Grand Annual Appeal, the school’s Annual Fund and our other fundraisers allow many good things to happen for our parish community. Like all parishes, we depend on this generosity to keep our programs strong for future generations.

We are deeply grateful to our parishioners for all you do through your volunteerism and financial support.

Offertory Giving Options

Parishioners have three options for their convenience in supporting the weekly offertory. Thank you for helping the Parish meet its financial obligations throughout the year!

Saint Joseph Parish “Giving Seasons”

We hope the following helps you with planning and budgeting both your time and charitable gifts.

Grand Annual

This event begins in the fall of each year. Your donated funds support the entire parish – liturgies and ministries, religious education programs, church facilities, and more!

School Annual Fund

This supports the faculty, staff and operations of the school.

Catholic Appeal

The Catholic Appeal is the annual campaign that supports the central ministries carrying out the mission of our Church in the Archdiocese of Boston. Central ministries help serve the needs of over 250 parishes in the Archdiocese of Boston to enrich parish life, strengthen families, educate and inspire future generations, and help advance Church leadership.


This auction is held each year in the spring and supports St. Joseph School.
