Family Life Center Updates

This survey, like the Town Hall meeting, is part of the Feasibility Study process we have recently undertaken. The survey is easy to complete and will only take 10 minutes to do.  Your thoughts and opinions are welcome and needed as part of the Feasibility Study process.  Thank you.

Campaign Case for Support Document

Saint Joseph the Worker Catholic Church has experienced significant growth over the last 3 years.  Growth is a good news story.  The problem is the facilities have shrunk! We do not have adequate space to serve the needs of our Faith Family.  Regardless of the event, the Church Hall and kitchen are undersized. 
Greater numbers of parishioners mean more meetings and classes. More people mean more paperwork and more equipment.  More paperwork and equipment highlight that current storage is inadequate.

SJTW with the assistance of Greater Mission, will determine the level of willingness of our parishioners to support the construction of a Family Life Center. A commitment demonstrated with a pledge to give funds over 3 to 5 year period.  This pledge is in addition to their normal Sunday offering.  Greater Mission will also confirm that the Steering Committee has included the most critical elements in the new building. 
The identified critical elements are:           

  • Classrooms

  • Large all-purpose hall

  • Large kitchen with pantry

  • Additional private offices and a conference room

  • Storage areas

With the work of an architect, we will know what a Family Life Center with our critical elements will cost to build. 

SJTW Faith Community becomes stronger with more opportunities to interact in social settings, in working together to support the various ministries, and ensuring growth in their faith through ongoing learning events.  The Family Life Center will help us fulfill our mission: seeks to promote our Catholic Faith through our youth and adult ministries within our diverse community. SJTW becomes a beacon of faith, hope and charity for our parishioners and Monroe County.
During the preliminary planning all agreed that Saint Joseph the Worker can be a vital contributor to the well-being of our parishioners as well as a model of Christ's work in Monroe County.  The committees saw a bright, vibrant, and satisfying future for our Happy Family!  One that will require adequate space to grow; one with a Family Life Center to meet the needs of our Faith Family.
