The parish offers several ways to offer Alms during Lent. You are encouraged to participate in the Annual Catholic Appeal campaign (our goal is 100% participation). This is in addition to our Haitian Scholarship Fund, Heifer International and Operation Rice Bowl programs. If you are not a registered member of the parish (i.e., you didn’t get an offering envelope in the mail), and would like to donate to these very worthy programs, please send your donation to St. Joseph Parish, 34 Monroe Ave., Shelburne Falls, MA 01370. Checks should be made payable to St. Joseph Parish, with your intention in the reference line. The collections will end after Easter, and the proceeds will be sent to their respective agencies for distribution.
