**Answer "YES" to receive notifications.

There are several “buttons” on the main page that you can press on and it will give you information about mass times, access to the bulletins, events, prayers, staff, school, etc.

If you want general notifications, you can request the general announcements sent out by St. Joseph Catholic Church.  Notifications can also get very specific; each ministry has the capability to send push notifications/messages to their members.  For example, if you want notifications for the "Food Pantry" and also "Youth Group", then you would sign up to receive notifications for these group/ministries too.

To sign up to receive the notifications for a specific group, click on the upper left hand corner of your mobile device screen.  There will be 3 small horizontal lines.  Press on them and then press the notifications tab.  (This is where you can sign up for the specific group you would like to get notifications from.) When group messages are sent you will get a notification on your mobile device. (It will not come as a text message.)  You can also view the notifications if you touch the messages button.  

We hope that his information helps you stay connected! God Bless you!
