Welcome to St. Joseph the Worker!

Welcome to the St Joseph the Worker Parish website! As pastor here, I am glad that you are inquiring about our faith community. 

The parish of St. Joseph is vibrant & active. The faith of this community is obvious, and it is a vibrant, celebrated, & revered faith. People put their belief into action in many ways. I am overly impressed with the outreach people have to the poor, the food pantries, & the needy. Volunteers are always coming forth to help whenever & wherever possible.

If you would like more information about the parish, or if you would like to be a member, that would be great. We would be glad to "have you in the pew" at our Masses, worshiping & celebrating the Lord's presence. Please know that if you have any questions, call the parish office at any time. We are here to assist you in any way possible.

May St. Joseph the Worker intercede daily for you & your needs.

Enjoy the website!!!

Father Joe

In the spirit of the season, the Music Ministry of St. Joseph the Worker is hosting two events with music. The events are being held with a two-fold intention of bringing joy to this season for our parishioners and guests but also to help artists who are struggling to recover from the effects of the pandemic.

Mission Statement

 MISSION STATEMENT

Vibrant & Active

St. Joseph the Worker Parish

We are a Roman Catholic faith family in Chatham Illinois committed to proclaiming the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We live our faith with our words and through our actions.  Nourished by the Word of God and the Eucharist, we seek to become a place of mercy and hope where everyone is welcomed, loved and respected.

Prayer

Prayer for Our Beloved Departed

God our Father, your power brings us to birth

Your providence guides our lives,

And by Your command we return to dust.

 

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,

Their lives change but do not end.

 

I pray in hope for my family, relatives and friends,

And for all the dead known to You alone.

 

In company with Christ,

Who died and now lives,

May they rejoice in your kingdom,

Where all our tears are wiped away.

 

Unite us together again in one family,

To sing Your praise forever and ever.

AMEN
