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.
 

K OF C FAIR FOOD BOOTH

Well summer has arrived and with its arriving comes the annual Sarpy County Fair. Your St. Joseph Knights of Columbus have a food booth at the Fair and it is the BIGGEST fundraiser of the year for the Knights.  The proceeds from this effort fund the majority of our activities for the year ( examples: Scholarships for our Catholic Youth, High School Seniors, Seminarians, Easter Egg Hunt for youth of our Parish, OPPD/Food Basket Program at Christmas and many other activities on the Local, State and Worldwide.) This project cannot be a success without the help of everyone; (Men and Women) alike of the St. Joseph Parish Family. Everyone's help is  appreciated  by your Knights Council.
 Fair Dates this year are: Wed July 30th thru. Sunday Aug. 3rd. Sigh up sheets are in back of church. Please help us out if at all possible by signing up for 1 or 2 shifts (there is app. 225 time slots to fill) and if other Family members or friends want to help we will have them. Once again this is a Knights of Columbus activity BUT we will need everyone from the St Joseph Parish Family to make it a success. Thanks Ralph Meister Volunteer Cord
