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.

Upcoming Events

Wed., Apr. 17, Youth Group Meeting 7:00-8:30pm

Believe it or not it is that time of year to think about mowing the grass. Once again we ask for your help. If every able-bodied family would sign up for one week we could cover the entire mowing season. Too often it falls on the same person who does it when no one else will. There is a calendar on the credenza with all the dates available. We only ask that you mow on Thursday, Friday or Saturday so it is nice for the weekend. Please consider using this as a way of offering your time and talent.

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.


If you need to reach the church secretary, (Sharon VanTassell) the email address has changed. Please email us secretary68059@gmail.com

Help Still Needed

I would like to thank the EMHC’s, Lectors and Servers who volunteered to serve and minister for our upcoming Easter and Holy Week services.

We still only need 1 EMHC for Holy Saturday. However we are in need of 2 servers for Holy Saturday and 1 server for Easter Sunday.

If you can help, please email me at sharonvan1@gmail.com Thank you, Sharon

We are asking you to help us pray and support for our RCIA Candidates who seek full communion in the Catholic Church and for their discernment to respond to the Call to Continuing Conversion and be admitted to the sacraments of Confirmation and the Eucharist. We also ask for your prayers and support for our Catechumen, now known as The Elect, who will seek Baptism, Confirmation, and First Holy Eucharist. All of this will take place on Saturday evening, April 20th at the Easter Vigil. Thank You!
Father Gutgsell and Deacon Ficenec
