  • 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.

      OPUS OF THE LAITY What is the role of the laity in the Church? What is its function in the Body of Christ? What "creative work” does Holy Mother Church expect from her children? On Saturday, September 17th from 10:00 AM until noon, Deacon Jim Kestell will examine key documents from the Second Vatican Council. Documents which, when woven together, create the beautiful tapestry that is the Opus of the Laity. Everyone is invited and welcome!

      After much discussion, the Parish Council has decided to form two new committees to address particular needs of the parish. The new Liturgy Committee will look at ways to provide the best liturgical experience possible here at St Joseph. The Council would especially like members of the Extraordinary Ministers, Sacristans, and Deacons, and Musicians. It is expected that this group will meet once a month. The Council has also created a Maintenance Committee that will identify and schedule maintenance projects for both the building and the grounds. If you are interested in serving on either of these committees please contact a member of the Parish Council, listed on the front of the parish bulletin.
    • The parish office will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Those hours will remain in effect until after Labor Day, September 5th. Have a great summer everyone!!
