As living members of the 

Body of Christ, the people of 

St. Joseph Parish embrace the Traditions of the Church  as given to us by Christ.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit we teach, live, and love one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, and celebrate the Word of God as a faith-filled community that welcomes all who seek the truth.  We celebrate the presence of God in our midst through worship, service, and catechesis.  In accordance with the teachings of the Church, we work to assist all parish members in discerning the truths of our faith and the moral obligation to which we are called to live the Gospel. Email us.



Novena to St. Joseph & Holy Hour

Our parish monthly Eucharistic Holy Hour will include a Novena

to St. Joseph on Tuesday, September 11th, at 6:00 PM. 


Our parish patron, St. Joseph, is the patron of the Universal Church. Having died in the "arms of Jesus and Mary" according to Catholic tradition, he is considered the model of the pious believer who receives grace at the moment of death, in other words, the patron of a happy death. St. Joseph is also the patron saint of families, fathers, workers and those seeking employment, against doubt & hesitation, cemetery workers, among many other causes.


All are invited to join us in this monthly Novena to

St. Joseph and Holy Hour on September 11th.




Join the fun this summer at St. Joe's Park!

Prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
