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 a 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 Jesus Christ.


The Guild will host a special Father's Day Donut Sunday on June 16th after 9:00 Mass. Please join us for egg casseroles, fruit, doughnuts and drinks.

St. Joseph Church has two wheelchairs available for anyone who needs assistance getting into or out of the church. A chair is located in the South entryway. (The front door we do not use). Feel free to borrow this chair if you need it.

We need volunteers to  help with totus Tuus!  One person is needed to help run the kitchen.  We  need 3 volunteers every day in te kitchen to help with making lunches for Totus Tuus staff and with snack times.  We also need to have 2 host families (one for the 2 girls and one for the 2 boys) that can offer them  meals and a place to stay that is relatively close to the church.  If yoy are interested in helping, please contact Sherry at shuntwork@msn.com or call 402-253-2949 ext. 4.


We are excited to invite you to join Summer Theater this year! Practices for “Into the Woods” will begin June 13 and run weekdays through July 3, with a performance that evening. The Methodist Church has been kind enough to agree to host us this year since St. Joseph’s is building a new parking lot. Practices are very important, so you must attend all practices from 3:30 - 5:30 PM. Alyssa Riha, who previously played Little Red Riding Hood in this play, is taking time out of her busy schedule to direct. There is no fee to participate. Recommended for grades four and up. Come ready to sing, dance, and act onstage!

Contact Mrs. Connery, 402-661-4214, to reserve your place in our cast.

For the sick: Kathy Ewing, Harriet Green, Sally Leyden, Jerry Martin, Wes Erhart, Joe Vampola.

*Please let us know if a person needs to be removed from our Prayer List.


Sarpy County Fair Food Booth – July 31- Aug 4

Food fair

Can you believe the fair is only 2 ½ months away?  That means it is time to staff the Knights of Columbus food booth at the Sarpy County Fair.  You can sign up for a shift or 5 if you would like at this link: Fair Food Booth Sign Up

In case you are not aware, we serve breakfast, lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Sunday and it takes a village to cover all the shifts.  The proceeds go into our Knights of Columbus church community to provide scholarships, coats for kids, and many other worthwhile efforts. 

We appreciate everybody’s help and if you have a teen looking for service hours this is a great way to get some!  We need help stocking pop, cleaning tables, removing trash and re-filling condiments.  Please let us know, we can find a job for your child.

If you have any questions please contact Ralph Meister, (402) 707-8426 or ralphlmeister@hotmail.com
