Come with us as we serve at Our Daily Bread. Our Daily Bread is Maryland’s largest hot meal program, serving more than a quarter of a million meals to those experiencing hunger in Baltimore City each year. We serve a nutritious lunch every day of the year and breakfast to seniors and individuals with disabilities each weekday.
Since June 1, 1981, this part of Catholic Charities in Baltimore, has never missed a day of lunch service to those experiencing hunger in Baltimore, in spite of blizzards, hurricanes or any other occurrence.
St. Joseph's Fullerton donates food, by way of the classic casserole program, and helping hands to Our Daily Bread. Be a part of our monthly outings to the center or simply donate your time to the organization directly.
There are two distinct areas that the St. Vincent De Paul society provides assistance: food and finances.
The St. Vincent De Paul Food Pantry serves all those who ask for and need food. The Pantry is open to the public upon request. The Loaves and Fishes collections from the parish stock our Pantry's shelves.
The Loaves and Fishes collections are on the 2nd Sunday of each month. At any of the four Sunday masses, and the Saturday evening Vigil, mass we accept non-perishables to stock our pantry. Items are also divided and given to St. Clement Church of Rosedale and St. Rita Church of Dundalk. Any contribution is greatly appreciated.
Volunteers are always welcome to work in the Food Pantry and in our ministry.
St. Vincent De Paul helps tackle poverty and disadvantage by providing direct practical assistance to anyone in need. This is usually provided as short-term assistance to those in crisis in the form of rent assistance, utility bills, or other emergency funding. Our mission is supported by contributions to the poor box and individual donations.
For those needing assistance: Please call the Parish Office 410-256-1630 and leave a detailed message with your name and return phone number, and one of our members will contact you.

The Evangelization Team is an apologetic and catechetical group that invites, welcomes and provides spiritual support for the various groups at St. Joseph Church and those who are new or visiting our parish. “It has both and inward and outward direction.” Go Make Disciples, USCCB document on evangelization.
Inwardly, we make every effort to deepen our conversion into Christ though a commitment to personal prayer and scripture study, formal and informal. It is a matter of “being” more than a matter of “doing.” It is a commitment to live the Gospel life and share it when called upon, reverencing the truth by our witness.
Outwardly, we help launch new ministries and plan events that help the parish to realize their Baptismal promises and keep them, helping them to deepen their conversion. We are present as part of the parish by welcoming, listening, and helping whenever we can. We help the pastor, when called upon, to energize parishioners in the faith by running programs or greeting at functions within the parish; or by participating in community events making St. Joseph Church known to the wider community, hopefully calling others to inquire about our Catholic faith.
