Remmembering our Parish in your Will

      Members of the Carpenter Society honor the past with financial gifts to assure the future of our parish and its facilities.  The society takes its inspiration from our Patron Saint, St. Joseph.  A hardworking craftsman, St. Joseph devoted his life to caring for Mary and the child Jesus.  He allow God to serve as his guide and never fled from his duty.  From St. Joseph's example, the Carpenter Society invites others to follow by providing financial assurances of care for St. Joseph Parish.
