St. Joseph Saturdays are free, biannual events that encourage young adults to “look upon work with the eyes of faith” and see God’s presence in their vocations and professional lives.
This event will include time for guided reflections, group discussions, Reconciliation, Mass, and a talk given by Father Joe Carroll, founder and President Emeritus of Father Joe's Villages!
**Father Joe rarely makes public appearances, and unlike other YCP events, spots are limited. Make sure you RSVP on our website now before we reach capacity.**
**ABOUT FATHER JOE**
Father Joe has dedicated his life to creating a new, one-stop approach to providing services to those struggling with homelessness.
In 1987, Father Joe expanded his ministry from handing out peanut butter sandwiches to people on the streets to the opening of a $12 million facility in only 5 short years. The first of its kind, the facility included housing for families and single adults, a medical clinic, childcare, meals, and job training all under one roof.
Father Joe Carroll has selflessly and tirelessly served our community for more than three decades. Although he retired in 2011, as President Emeritus, Father Joe continues to lead and inspire others to end the cycle of homelessness. He is taking the time to speak to us at this very special YCP Saint Joseph Saturday event.
Father Joe rarely makes public appearances so we are thrilled that he will be serving mass and giving us a talk at the event. This may be your only chance to hear from him personally, since he is a highly regarded San Diego icon. RSVP now!
