Do you like helping people? If so, St. Joseph Charities can provide you the perfect opportunity to do so! We provide financial assistance for utilities and rent when our clients experience financial hardship. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in joining us to schedule appointments and/or interview candidates for financial need. Training will be provided.
Our business hours are Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.
Please email SJCAthens@yahoo.com with contact information if you are interested in volunteering.
It is a small time commitment to make a big impact on a person’s life!

For our 150th Anniversary celebration in September YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! We need you to share your memories of and reasons for being a member of our parish. Whether you have been with us for only a few months or for many years, we need to hear from you.
Your thoughts can be written or typed. Here’s an example: I have been a member of St. Joseph’s since the mid 60’s. One of my favorite and fondest memories is seeing my child, and then my grandchildren, receive First Holy Communion in our church on Prince Avenue.—D. Elliott 1966
Just leave them in the Parish Office (attn: Dee) or email them to: email@example.com. Please include your name, contact information, and the year you joined us. If you have photos of an activity or parish celebration, we will welcome a copy of them.
Our goal is to post these memories and compile a booklet for the Anniversary celebration in September. We ask that all contributions be submitted no later than September 1, but the earlier the better!
Mark your calendar for September 17, 2023 and help us plan for this wonderful celebration!
