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

Advent journey

During this holy season of Advent we are all being called on to prepare ourselves to commemorate the first coming of Christ. If we do that each year; if we let the full meaning of Christmas enter into our innermost being, then each year of our lives will be sanctified and a big step will be taken towards our eternal goal. Christmas each year should be a milestone on the journey to heaven for every true Christian.

You are also invited to our parish Advent Retreat.

Please join us at Mass as we can be inspired by Jesus’s love.
