Welcome to St. Joe’s Jobs where good work is always a blessing.

WELCOME …

Jesus learned about work in St. Joseph’s workshop. As we follow in His footsteps (Jn 14:6), we’ll enter “St. Joe’s Workshop” too. We’ll learn some of those same lessons and prepare ourselves for a career and life of good work that blesses!

DISAPPOINTMENTS AND BLESSINGS …

The picture on this page (at the top) reminds us that the workplace can be very disappointing. Life doesn’t always work out the way we plan it, but God doesn’t want us to give up.

God created each of us with a purpose. He has a plan for all of us (Jer 29:11). God wants to bless us (“beati”) and not to harm us. He wants to be our Friend and wants us to be His friends (Jn 15:15) too. In short, God wants us to experience “Beattitude Career.”

BEATTITUDE CAREER …

Beattitude Career is more than a job. It’s a life perfectly suited for us individually. Our career is God’s call (vocation) to do good work that is a blessing. Beattitude Career glorifies God and breathes life into our faith (Jas 2:17). Use the CONTACT page on this site to send us questions about your job or career.

Work Matters

Your work matters to God. If you’re a follower of Jesus, you are also God’s partner in His work of salvation and redemption. You are the body of Christ — His arms and legs, eyes and ears, wherever you go (1 Cor 12:14-27). This most definitely includes the workplace.

SPIRITUALITY …

Work has a spirituality of its own. In “St. Joe’s Workshop,” we’ll consider three important factors. They are:

  • Career.
  • The Workplace.
  • The Worker / Workforce.

CAREER, THE WORKER AND THE WORKPLACE …

Your life is a pilgrimage — a journey. The root word for career (“carrus”) means “carriage” or “chariot.” Your career is actually the “chariot” that carries you from where you are to where you’re going in life. In that sense, career is essential for understanding God’s plan and purpose for your life..

The worker and the workplace complete the picture. They make it possible to see beyond the fog of the “daily grind” and draw closer to God where we gain a deeper understanding of the truth behind the work we do. We also begin to see the opportunities for charitable service that transcend job descriptions.
