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

St. Joe's Long Term Vision & Strategies

Fr. Mike has mentioned that the Pastoral Council worked on drafting a vision statement that would give our parish guidance for the coming years. This is still a work in progress. It is now time for you to react to the statement, to work with us in adding to it, taking out items that perhaps do not belong, and to strategize specific goals that will be addressed in order to fulfill our vision. Join us for an upcoming session of sharing ideas and learning more:

One way that you can help is by using our Giving Kiosk located in the Gathering Space.  This is a fast and easy way to make financial gifts, pay for events and respond to special appeals.

The kiosk is very user friendly, just swipe your credit or debit card, choose the fund you want to give to and the amount you’d like to give.

It’s fast and secure. An encrypted card reader processes your card information and the kiosk immediately prints a receipt to you.  We receive a giving report in order to record donations and purchases.

Thank you for all you do to support our parish ministries.

Whether your gifts are financial in nature, giving of your time or your talents, there are many ministries here at St. Joseph's that will welcome your contributions! Learn more about giving today.

The Catholic Spirit


Will "Coco" be your cup of tea? That largely depends on how well equipped you are to interpret this visually rich animated fantasy's presentation of the afterlife, one which owes little to Christianity and much to the pre-Columbian beliefs associated with Mexico's Day of the Dead.
