Employment Ministry

All of us have come to a crossroads, faced a time in our lives when we have questioned our career path, found ourselves down-sized or redundant, or just wondering what more productive work we could be doing. The St. Michael “Employment Ministry” was initiated in 2008 to provide a resource for those members of our parish evaluating their future work, between jobs, and searching for more fulfillment in their employment. The following will provide some activities, hints and referral resources within our community that will allow persons in the employment search to further develop their interview skills, improve their resume, and network with others in transition.

Prayer to St. Joseph for Employment:

Dear Saint Joseph, you were yourself once faced with the responsibility of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary. Look down with fatherly compassion upon me in my anxiety over my present inability to support my family. Please help me to find gainful employment very soon, so that this heavy burden of concern will be lifted from my heart and that I am soon able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to my care. Help us to guard against bitterness and discouragement, so that we may emerge from this trial spiritually enriched and with even greater blessings from God. Amen.

Networking and Job Transition Information Coffee & Careers

Coffee & Careers convenes the first Monday of each month 9am-10am in the Parish Life Center room B. Open to all who are actively engaged in the employment search process. This is an opportunity to meet with others experiencing work transition, share information, and make some new friends along the way. Discussions are confidential.

Next Meeting: Monday, June 6 from 9-10am in PLC-B.

The topic will be resumes so please bring your resumes for review.
