Pastoral Care

Visits from Father Stan or Church Staff

If you or someone you know is hospitalized and would like a visit from our staff or Father Stan, contact Annette Hritz at (952) 442-3715 or e-mail. If someone from your family has died and the funeral is not at St. Joseph, please call the parish office to include them in our prayers.

BeFrienders

BeFrienders are trained parishioners ready to provide a confidential listening presence to individuals in difficult and transitional situations, such as illness, loneliness or loss of a loved one. If you would like to speak to or be visited by a BeFriender, contact Annette Hritz at (952) 442-3715 or e-mail.

Homebound Ministry

Eucharistic Ministers to the homebound are needed for those who cannot make it to Mass. Bringing Jesus to them is a precious gift. The commitment would be once every four to five weeks on Sundays for about an hour and a half. Training is provided. If you’re interested, contact Annette Hritz at (952) 442-3715 or e-mail.
