Come with us as we serve at Catholic Charities Our Daily Bread, Maryland’s largest hot meal program, serving more than a quarter of a million people experiencing hunger in Baltimore City each year.
Spearheaded by St. Joseph African Catholic Community, a group of ten parishioners serves at the center from 9-1 on the fourth Saturday of every month. If desired, volunteers meet at the chapel parking lot at 8:30am and carpool to Our Daily Bread. Contact the Parish Office, 410-256-1630, if you would like to volunteer for this vital ministry.
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 St. Vincent de Paul food pantry. Any contribution is greatly appreciated. Donations are accepted in the assigned basket at the back of the church.

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.
