Members at SJE are encouraged and inspired to put their unique gifts and talents at the service of God, helping to grow his kingdom with their hearts, minds, and hands.


Service takes many forms at SJE. Maybe you serve by helping with one of our weekend Masses as a greeter, playing in the band, or helping guests find seats. Maybe you regularly help cook meals for new moms or collect canned goods for local food pantries. Perhaps you really love kids and serve as a teacher in our Religious Education program or volunteer with our Youth Group. Whatever it is you do, you do it in the name of Jesus Christ.

At SJE, we believe everyone is called to serve, but not everyone serves the same way. We offer so many different service opportunities it can be hard to know where you’re being called! Rest assured God has the perfect place for you.
