Saint Joseph Catholic Church

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

The last

Our Gospel this week raises the question of who is first and who is last in the kingdom of heaven. (Mt 20:1-16a)
In the parable, the laborers who worked the longest grumble about the amount of wages others are receiving. However Jesus reminds us, simply being called to the privilege of sharing in Jesus' work is its own recompense. Like the good samaritan, the kingdom of heaven is revealed by those who choose this work. Do we choose it?

Pastoral Reflections

We have started a new section of this website dedicated to Reflections from the Staff at Saint Joseph Church.

Matthew 20:1-16a
This week, Nancy Flores reflects on how the Gospel and the Lord have become part of her life, and how He can be part of ours also. "I know in my heart I am a beloved child of God."
