Enhancement, repair, and maintanence will be our primary objective for the funds raised in this historic initiative. St. Joseph Parish is 150 years old. The outside grounds have endured many years of hardship and impact from the elements, and are in need of repair and replacement. Monies raised through this campaign will be used to replace the church roof, tuckpointing, work on the terrazzo floors, and maintenance on our boilers and air conditioning. We are also looking to resurface the parking lot, fencing and sidewalks. These changes will enhance the parishioner experience, and lend to a greater environment in which to foster and grow our Faith.
Evangelization of our Faith plays an important role in our parish. Many times, evangelization happens through our many parish ministries and outreach work across the greater Racine area. The ministries at St. Joseph provide parishioners with an avenue to share their faith with others in the parish and the entire community. A portion of the funds will be set aside in this campaign to bolster faith formation of our children and adults and thus increase our evangelization efforts.
