Our Mission

St. Joseph Church is a Catholic community of faith established over 100 years ago brought together by our common love of Jesus Christ centered on the Eucharist. Ours is a living faith, expressed in the worship of God both within our parish and in outreach in our community and our world. Everyone is welcome here.
