St. Joseph Parish, Strongsville

St. Joseph Parish Day of Service 2018

As of Wednesday, Oct 17th, please do not sign-up here online. Please call Kathy McConnaughy directly at 216.215.5859 if you want to help at Service Day. Thank you.

Every year our Parish family comes together to pray, then fans out across our community to serve our fellow neighbors. Some of these service experiences are close to home, some are a little farther away. Take a few minutes to explore these sites since there really is something for everyone.

On Saturday October 27, please plan to arrive at 7:45 a.m. to meet your team and pickup your t-shirt and nametag. Coffee, tea and snacks will be available. We will have a short prayer service in church at 8:00 a.m. and take a group picture before you move to your worksite.

If you have any questions, contact the Parish Office at 440.238.5555, or Kathy McConnaughy at 216.215.5859.
