Dear Friends in Christ:
The Catholic Community of Saint Joseph warmly greets you and welcomes you. We are happy that you have joined us on our website to worship the Lord, to share your faith with us, and to witness to the life and mission of our Savior Jesus.
We hope that the parish website provides useful information to your search. We pray that you join us at our sacramental celebrations of the Holy Eucharist, and that you are inspired by the Holy Spirit to be an active member/disciple of the community.
“May God bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace” (Num 6:24-26).
A season of prayer, and reflection — followed by anticipation, hope and joy.
We envision our parish to be a community of faith, hope and love. In so doing we are also attempting to establish a community of the peace and justice envisioned by Jesus in the Gospels. What an inspiring and beautiful statement this is. Are you willing to take this challenge and be part of making this vision a reality? God is calling us.
We, as Catholic Christians joyfully worship God in faith. We learn, live and share our faith with others, with Saint Joseph as our model. We listen to the Holy Spirit and use our gifts and talents as stewards to love and serve God and one another on our faith journey.
