GAP Prayer Request Line

We all need prayer at some point. So we would like to offer a way for you to submit your prayer requests securely online. If you need prayer or know someone else who needs prayer, you can use our online prayer request and your requests will be sent directly to our GAP line here at St. Joseph the Worker Parish. Your request will be given to over 200 prayer warriors who belong to GAP (God Answers Prayers). So please feel free to use our prayer request form whenever you are in need of prayers for yourself or someone else.

To submit your prayer requests or subscribe to the list, send an email to .

Coffee & Donuts

Help your fellow parishioners with their caffeine and sugar needs! We need support in offering this community gathering opportunity following Sunday Masses (8:30 am and 10:30 am) - making coffee, serving doughnuts, and cleaning up. If you are interested, call Terri Fessler at 503-761-8710 with the dates and times you can be of service!

Bible Study

We have active bible study groups that meet twice a year, one in the fall and one in the spring for 6 weeks. The Bible study is centered around a particular book selected by the parish. We offer a number of different days and times during the week. Choose the date and time that works best for your schedule.

For more information contact: Deacon Mike at 503-761-8710 ext. 105 or email Deacon Mike Caldwell.


St. Joseph the Worker Parish takes an active role in a variety of Pro Life events and we encourage all parishioners to get involved in some form, even if it is just to pray.

A group of parishioners from St. Josephs' and St. Henrys' meet each Wednesday in front of the Planned Parenthood on SE 50th and Franklin, one block north of Powell and pray 20 decades of the Rosary from 9 am to 10 am. All are welcome to join us.

St. Joseph Parish also participates in the 40 Days for Life Campaign which occurs every spring and fall. 40 Days for Life is a pro-life campaign working to end abortion through prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils outside abortion centers, and community outreach.

If you would like to get involved with any ongoing or upcoming Pro Life event, contact: Kathi Nordlund at 503-760-8429 or email
