I have added a new page entitled TORNADO RELIEF RESPONSE, which can be found under the HOME tab. It lists the needs of families and individuals who lost their homes and possessions in the recent tornadoes in the Springfield area. Cash donations are always welcome. Checks can be mailed to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Springfield, or The Diocese of Springfield with “Tornado Relief” in the Memo line, or you may send us the check (made out to Saint Joseph Church, with “Tornado Relief” in the Memo line), and we’ll mail it to the Diocese for you. Drop-off of household items, toiletries, clothing, baby needs and non-perishable food can be made at the rectory, or in the baskets (label your bag with the words “Tornado Relief”) at the entrances to the church. Thank you for your generosity and compassion!
