Have you ever wondered, is there more to being a parishioner at St. Joseph the Worker than going to mass and putting my envelope in the collection basket? The answer to that is a resounding yes. There is so much going on behind the scenes to keep St. Joseph the Worker running smoothly and making it the best parish in Dubuque.

Of course we have the great office staff and our wonderful Pastor, but along with that we have committees, councils, and commissions that keep this parish moving forward. It may seem like this all happens behind the scenes and things just get done. But in reality we need everyone to step up and help keep the parish moving along.

With that being said I am here today to put out a call to action, to you, our fellow parishioners, to put yourself out there and get involved in the future of our great parish.

We will begin the elections for the Pastoral Council at the end of this month, and we invite all our members to prayerfully ponder and nominate two people you think would be effective leaders in our parish. Please submit your nominations below.
