Kards for Kids is a subcommittee of the Parish Life Committee.
It began as a goodwill and public relations gesture to acquaint parents with St. Joseph's educational programs. The program offers information on the St. Joseph's Day School and Christian Formation Ministry to children who are near the ages of enrollment in those educational programs. Birthday cards designed by the children of St. Joseph are sent to parish children ages one through five who are not already enrolled in any of the educational programs. However, older children are not forgotten. For those turning 16 years old, birthday cards with 50¢ for emergency calls are mailed to the new drivers in the parish. Parents of the newly baptized also are given remembrance gifts. Anyone interested in supplying handmade birthday cards is asked to please leave them in the Parish Life mailbox at the rectory.
