Together in Spirit


“He was chosen by the eternal Father as the trustworthy guardian and protector of his greatest treasures, namely, his divine Son and Mary, Joseph’s wife. He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying: ‘Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.’ ”

-- St. Bernardine of Siena

Invest in our Future - Multimedia System

St. Joseph of the Lakes sent out a letter this past December to all parishioners regarding our goal of a new multimedia system for our Worship Space. We believe such an investment will not only replace a system that is nearly twenty years old, it will also enhance the liturgical experience and engage the congregation with visuals and better sound quality. 

invest in our future

This is an exciting week at St. Joe’s, as the work on our new Sound System began and we are ever so close to reaching our $150,000 goal for the enhanced sound/video systems. The new sound system will be up and running by Easter with the video component soon to follow.  We are only $4850 away from the total – THANK YOU THANK YOU!  It’s been amazing to see such an outpour of generosity and excitement for our parish as we look to our future. Gifts can be made via the second collection or online at and click on DONATE TODAY. God bless you, Amy Moore.
