Our Mission

Through prayer and service, the St. Joseph family will strive to bring the community together to love, heal, and support one another as the people we are called to be in Christ.

This week's liturgy

Faith

This week we are reminded of the Gospel reading where the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” Lk 17:5-10

Lord, we have your word.
Faith can move mountains,
uproot mulberry trees
and plant them in the sea.

Please, increase faith in our hearts and minds.
Send us out armed for your work
in your wonderful world.

Please join us at Mass as we celebrate this holy season
and find ways we can be inspired by Jesus’s love.
