Here at St. Joseph Parish, we have SPRED (SPecial Religious Education Dept.) for adults, and AFF (Adaptive Faith Formation) for children with special needs. These two ministries are intended to help and support the children and adults with special needs. If you have a family member or know of parishioners with autism or other special needs who may need special accommodations or support to participate in parish life, faith formation, or preparing for Sacraments, please drop Sr. Cecilia an email at ceciliastjoseph@gmail.com or give her a call at (510) 657-0905. Or if you would like to volunteer to help in one of these ministries, please also contact Sr. Cecilia. We need your help, and in turn, these ministries will help you and our special friends to grow in faith.

  • Q. Are Niches available at the Old Mission Cemetery?
  • A. Yes. Double and Single Cremation Niches are still available for immediate and/or pre-need purchase through Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services.
