Arts and Crafts Group

At Home Prayer
This ministry is for parishioners who are on the Care & Prayer list, homebound, elderly, or otherwise unable to perform other ministries. The focus is the great call to prayer.
Guadalupe Ministries of St. Joseph
The members of this ministry will organize and support the cultural celebrations and activities such as the celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Posadas, and the booth at the Parish Festival, that all contribute to the spiritual and community development of the Spanish speaking members of the parish.
The Rosary Guild promotes Marian Rosary Devotion providing rosaries to many parish groups like the RCIA, hospital visits, First Communion, Baptisms, and the parish chapel. The Guild improves understanding of the rosary through formal and informal instruction.
The Spiritual Direction Ministry consists of individuals trained by St. Peter Upon the Water to perform the duties of Spiritual Direction for members of our Parish. Spiritual Direction is help given by one Christian to another which enables that person to pay attention to God's personal communications to him or her, to respond to this personally communicating God, to grow in intimacy with God, and to live out the consequences of this relationship.
This ministry provides a confidential, one–on–one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. These difficulties may include the loss of a loved one, divorce or separation, the loss of employment, incarceration, a terminal illness, and many other challenges. A Stephen Minister could be assigned to provide spiritual encouragement during these difficult times by listening, praying, and walking with you in Christ.
