  • Our Mission

    Love God
    Love Others
     Make Disciples

    Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind... Love your neighbor as yourself.
                                          Matthew 22:37, 39

    Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Soirit, and teaching them to obey everthing I have commanded you.
                                          Matthew 28:19-20

    What We Believe

    We believe in Christianity, as taught by the Roman Catholic Church. The Eucharistic celebration is the source and summit of our faith. Catholic belief is succinctly expressed in our profession of faith or credo called the Nicene Creed.

    "Our profession of faith begins with God, for God is the First and the Last, the beginning and the end of everything. The Credo begins with God the Father, for the Father is the first divine person of the Most Holy Trinity; our Creed begins with the creation of heaven and earth, for creation is the beginning and the foundation of all God's works."

    ---the  Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 198

      The Nicene Creed

    I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

    • My friends in Christ, Some of you may know that I have kidney failure. I am able to do dialysis at home, on my own, at night. This has allowed me to minister to St. Joseph parish full-time. It is a great blessing for me to work for the youth at our parish and it has been immensely fulfilling. Recently, I have had some complications due to my condition. I've been in and out of the hospital over the last 3 weeks, each time thinking I was recovered, when something new would turn up sending me back. It's the end of the year and we have some great activities coming up that I'm really exited about: the Altius overnight, the Youth Group end-of-the-year event, and the start of our summer programs. It's a bummer that it would be this time when the Lord chooses to bless me with these sufferings. In consultation with the staff, we have decided to cancel all youth ministry activities (save for the Graduation Mass for our high school seniors) until I can recover and return to work. Please accept my apologies for having to do this. I pray that the Lord will return me to health so I can return to you, my community and my friends. Please know that I am offering up my sufferings for all of you, my parish family. So, until I can join you again at the table of our Lord, I will be thinking of all of you. Blessings from our Lord, - Josh
    • Click title above to read a comprehensive report of the disaster recovery that occurred in July of 2014 as a result of the windstorms. New Hope worked with St. Joseph, and the Knights played a huge part in this recovery. If we could make it available to all of our parishioners through our web site and via email, I think it would help them to understand how many people were impacted directly, and the difference volunteers made in their lives. In addition to the information provided about the Knights in the report, the hospitality circle cooked and served meals at the Riverside Village Mobile Home Park once weekly until power was restored.
    • On Sunday, June 5th, at the 11:00 am Mass, we will honor our graduating seniors with the celebration of a special Mass followed by a breakfast reception for them and their families. Please mark your calendars now for this very special event!
