Shrine Operations

How the Shrine of St. Joseph Operates

Overall management is in the hands of a 15-member Board of Directors, which functions through a number of committees. Members of the Board are elected by “Friends” holding “active membership cards” donating at least 3 years of active support of The Shrine.

Operating expenses are met from regular Sunday collections, the annual “Friends” membership fees, donations to the “Air & Steam Club” which meets heat and electric bills, and whatever gifts are received specifying that they be used to defray operating expenses.
