Invest in our Future - Multimedia System
St. Joseph of the Lakes sent out a letter this past December to all parishioners regarding our goal of a new multimedia system for our Worship Space. We believe such an investment will not only replace a system that is nearly twenty years old, it will also enhance the liturgical experience and engage the congregation with visuals and better sound quality.
This past week we surpassed the $136,600 mark in collected gifts for our new Sound System and AV enhancements for the worship space. We will be conducting 2nd collections this weekend and in the coming weekends in order to help raise the additional $13,400 needed to reach the goal. Please help us by making a designated donation either in the Sunday collection or online below. Thank you.

And each year, they’ve quietly placed a bucket out for party-goers to donate to a worthy case, whether it’s a local family facing a cancer diagnosis or an organization that supports orphans or children with special needs.Read More

Brad Parent, 27, doesn’t usually talk during Mass, but one Sunday he spent much of the liturgy whispering to a friend. It wasn’t a conversation. The friend was searching for that something the world cannot give, and his search had led him to St. Mark in St. Paul with his Catholic friend. Parent, an active parishioner and well-catechized Catholic, wanted to make sure his friend understood what was going on. But after Parent had passed on all the knowledge he had, he realized there was still so much he didn’t know.Read More
