Family Gatherings happen on the first Sundays of the month following the 9:15 am Mass. This is a fun and friendly event for families who want to meet other families and share their faith with each other and their kids. Each family brings a baked good to share in the Education Center and Andrew McGown takes care of coffee and other beverages. Families spend some time in fellowship before having a short Bible Study or teaching and time for discussion while the kids play. Please contact Andrew at andrewm at stjoegold.org if you have any questions.
Knights of Columbus Pancake Breakfast
The Knights of Columbus host a Pancake Breakfast on the third Sunday of the month (excluding December and Lent) in the Community Center after the Sunday Masses. Cost is usually $5/person and includes all you can eat pancakes, eggs, and sausage.
Annual Parish Picnic
We usually host our Parish Picnic in August or September. It's a fun evening for parishioners to connect and enjoy food and games. We start with Mass and then head out to the field to the east of the main parking lot. The Knights of Columbus man the grills, while parishioners bring salads and desserts. We have games and a jumpy castle for the kids, a cake walk, dessert contest as well as music and dancing.
Helping Hands Hustle
Every September/October, St. Joseph hosts the Helping Hands Hustle 5k to raise money for the Christian Action Guild, Golden Backpack Program, and Golden Rescue Fund. This is a great way for families to come together to help others. Dogs and strollers are welcome. We also have a sleep-in category for people who can't make it to the race.
Each December, we have a special Christmas Breakfast in the Community Center with gingerbread pancakes, peppermint hot chocolate, and other treats. We are visited by Santa, who is available for pictures.
