St. Joseph Food Program

The St. Joseph Food Program is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization that has operated since 1982. Weekly they distribute 30 tons of fresh food and non-perishable items to hundreds of men, women and children – the elderly, working poor and temporarily unemployed. They are funded by cash and food donations from individuals, churches, businesses and foundations.

As a parish we donate nonperishable food items monthly to St. Joseph Food Program in Menasha, WI. To do that we encourage our parishioners to bring nonperishable items to our Church for us to donate to the St. Joseph Food Program or to take them directly to St. Joe’s:

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
