Code of Conduct

To share in the ministry of Christ is a great privilege as well as a tremendous responsibility. The privilege is the joy of sharing in the mission of Jesus Himself. The responsibility is acting in a way that conforms to the attitude and actions of Christ. As is evident in the Gospels, Jesus had a deep, abiding respect for each human being and never did anything that harmed or misled people in their personal or spiritual life.

The public needs to know that the Church is committed to protecting the children/youth who are entrusted to its care and to ensuring that those offering services are in right relationship with the children/youth receiving services.
There is a challenge in the Scriptures to "live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace." (Ephesians 4:1-3)

Good morning everyone- We have a busy schedule ahead for CCY fundraisers. It is a great time to support our youth group and also students can help support by earning Salt & Light or Confirmation hours. If you would like to help, there are so many ways to assist and all your help truly makes a difference in the lives of our students. Come enjoy soup and pie at Holy Redeemer Parish cafeteria after their 4:30 pm Saturday Mass on 11-19-17. Cost is a donation. Also, if you enjoy being creative and have a good imagination or your business wants to show your support of our youth, you can donate a basket for the Christmas Basket Raffle. Baskets will be displayed starting Thanksgiving weekend and travel between St. Joseph and Holy Redeemer parishes. They will also be on display at the St. Joseph Craft Fair. Purchase basket tickets for a chance to win great prizes for yourself or gifts. If you like to bake, we will need donations for the Craft Fair bake sale and luncheon. Come! shop, enjoy lunch and eat in or take home dessert. Your prayerful support is always a true blessing. Please keep our youth in your prayers for grace and growth in their relationship with the Lord and each other.
