These sessions (available in Spanish and English) are for clergy, staff, and key volunteers, and those whose current VIRTUS® certificate has expired, or who have never been certified. Virtus certification is valid for four years. If your certification has expired, please take this opportunity to re-certify.

Supporting Your Parish
During this challenging time, please continue to support your parish. Our parish must continue to pay ongoing expenses (e.g., salaries, insurance, utilities) during these difficult circumstances. While we understand that everyone’s situation is different, we encourage you to continue your financial support for St. Joseph the Worker.
Now is the time to give online!
Electronic Giving (e-giving) is an easy, convenient way to support your parish. Click on "e-giving" at the top right corner of this page and follow the instructions. You have the option to set up your contributions on an ongoing basis or as a one-time donation.
Our weekly bulletin routinely publishes collection statistics, comparing a particular week of the current year with the same week the previous year. Because we are not publishing the bulletin during this time, we have included collection data here. The chart below compares the most recent week’s collection with the same week in 2019.
Mail: If you prefer, you may mail your offering (envelope or check) to the parish: St. Joseph the Worker Church, 19808 Cantlay Street, Winnetka, CA 91306.
