Ever wonder what the contributions you make to the Church are used for? Please allow us to paint a picture for you. A gift to St. Joan of Arc looks like:
Community Countless parish wide events are organized throughout the year to promote fellowship and community within our parish. Your gifts help to offset the cost of events such as our Second Sunday Socials and Parish Picnic.
Religious Education There are currently more than 600 youth enrolled in our Religious Education Program which provides children attending public school the opportunity to learn and understand their Catholic faith and become active members of our parish community. Your gifts help to offset the program fees for the families whom struggle to afford these costs.
School Each day our parish school is entrusted with the education of 359 students. Our school exists to provide a quality education to our students, in keeping with our Catholic tradition of discipline in Christian values and academic excellence. Your gifts help to maintain the school, as well as ease the financial burden for families who desire to send their children to a Catholic school but struggle to afford it.
Teenagers Our Life Teen and EDGE programs provide the youth of our parish an opportunity to meet with a group of their peers each week to better understand their faith and ask questions in a safe and Catholic environment. They are given the chance to serve others in need through various mission trips that are planned throughout the year. Your gifts help fund these youth programs as well as provide financial assistance to those who have a desire to serve but cannot afford the costs associated with a mission trip.
Faith Formation We are continually working to identify opportunities to bring to the parish that will promote faith formation and allow parishioners to deepen their relationship with Christ and enrich their understanding of our Catholic Faith. Your gifts help to cover the costs of these programs and resources.
Warm Welcomes Hundreds of visitors attend Masses, baptisms, weddings, or funerals at our parish throughout the year. Your gifts ensure that every person whom enters our Church is greeted into a clean, warm and welcoming place to worship Christ.
Outreach Often people arrive that require an accommodation to allow them to worship more easily. In some situations, without these special accommodations it would not be possible for them the participate. Your gifts assist with the purchase and maintenance of items like the sound system, handicap accessible: doors, bathroom and confessionals.
