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

Persevere

This week’s second reading asks us to persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes on Jesus. Heb 12:1-4

May all the saints in heaven help us
keep our eyes on you, Jesus,
as we run the race.
No looking back.
Eyes on you.

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

Pastoral Reflections

We have started a new section of this website dedicated to Reflections from the Staff at Saint Joseph Church. This week, Sandra Hernandez reflects on a divisive reading from Luke 12:49-53, or is it?

Jesus said to his disciples: “I have come to set the earth on fire…”

This Gospel is quite intimidating. Especially in light of divisions in our country………
