Mission Statement

St. Joseph Catholic Community is a parish family united by a common faith whose mission is: to proclaim and live the Good News of Jesus; to worship God according to the Catholic tradition; to be welcoming, loving community; to serve the educational and social needs of the community; to reach out to all, especially the poor, the disenfranchised and the most vulnerable of the world - to bring all people to Christ Jesus.

RE Happenings


RE HAPPENINGS                  

The First Communion Retreat for 2nd graders is April 13 from 10-12 in social hall.

Easter Egg Hunt April 16

The Easter Egg Hunt for Parish children and friends is April 16 starting at 6:00 on the rectory grounds.  We are also having an Open House/sneak peek of the new RE building that night starting at 6:35.

First Communion is Sunday, April 27 at 11:00.

Server practice for new servers is April 9, 23, and 30.


I need someone to volunteer to direct VBS this summer. 

With needing to transfer over to the new building and having Totus Tuus as well, I am finding little time in my schedule to do VBS.  I need someone who is willing to run VBS from the teaching aspect.  I will still be around to help set up, organize, decorate, etc., but I need someone to run the show.  We already have the starter kit from Group and the theme is "Weird Animals" (go to website and check it out).  If you would be interested in being a station leader or any other volunteer, please let me know as well, the more helpers we have the easier it is for everyone.

Taking Early Registrations for VBS

VBS is scheduled for June 23-27 from 9:00-12:00.  Children age 3 to 6th Grade can come to VBS.  Please pick up a form in the church narthex or by the RE office.  It is Register Now-Pay Later.  We need to know numbers for ordering supplies and the earlier we order the better the discount.

Totus Tuus (Totally Yours)

Totus Tuus is a summer catechetical program for children and youth.  The Archdiocese gathers together college students and seminarians onto teams of four (two men and two women) and sends them out to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in various parishes.  St. Joseph’s is one of the parishes this year that will be hosting Totus Tuus July 12-18. 

Youth, going into grades 7-12, meet Sunday-Thursday evenings from 7:30-9:40.

Elementary children, going into grades 1-6, meet Monday-Friday from 9-3 (need to bring a sack lunch.)

Registration forms for Totus Tuus can be found by the RE office and in the Narthex.  The cost is $10 per elementary child or $25 per family of three or more children and grades 7-12 are free.

We need volunteers to help with Totus Tuus!

We should only need about 6 volunteers every day, 4 in the classrooms (if needed) and 2 in the kitchen to help with making lunches for Totus Tuus staff and with snack times.
