Several Outreach Initiatives are done regularly at St. Joseph Parish through the generosity of our parish and parishioners. If you would like more information on opportunities through our parish or efforts lead by parishioners of the parish for St. Vincent dePaul or the West Side Catholic Center, please email Stewardship@StJosephAvonLake.org.



The Bereavement Ministry is called into service upon the request of parishioners who have had a death in their families.  Members provide consolation by providing a place and meal for families and friends after the funeral. 

Never Alone

This group is open to all ages at no cost. Those who are grieving receive friendship and faith-based support as they move through the grieving process. Meetings are held on the first Sunday of each month at 1:00 pm in St. Joseph Hall. Come heal with us.

Pro-Life Ministry

The group members help others discover the wisdom of the Church's teaching that all life is to be respected and protected from conception until the moment of natural death.  The group supports collections, fundraisers, and educational efforts throughout the parish.  Meetings are on the second Wednesday of every month from 11 AM - 12 Noon in the Children's Room of the Church.
