Your SJB Staff
Reopening Update
We had planned to reopen the office this month but with the rollback to phase 2 are unable to reopen. We are hoping to reopen in May. In the mean time you are still able to contact us via phone or email. For staff contact information click here.

We are in preplanning stages for indoor mass and need volunteers. Without volunteers for Usher Teams, Welcome Teams, Cleaning/Sanitizing teams we cannot reopen.  It will take our entire community to come together for reopening.

Volunteers Needed!
For us to continue serving our community in more ways and reopen for Indoor Mass we need volunteers. These volunteers must be trained in advance before we can be approved for reopening. They will also be put into teams that will be scheduled to cover at least 2 Sunday’s a month for the foreseeable future. 

We need volunteers for these teams:
  • Usher Teams
  • Welcome and Hospitality Teams
  • Cleaning/Sanitizing teams. 

To volunteer please fill out the form available on our website by clicking the button below. More information and Job descriptions are also available there.

If you have questions about volunteering please contact Terri Nelson or check out our website.
We had a great turn out for Holy Week and were blessed with nice weather. We are so thankful to all the volunteers that continue to help with Mass and couldn't do this without you!
Open for
Outdoor Mass
We are all anxious to move inside and are working hard to move inside. In the meantime we will continue to have Sunday Masses outside for 75 people under our sheltered entrance areas with masking strictly enforced. To attend you must register in advance using the form available on our website.
