St. Joseph the Worker

WE WELCOME YOU!


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
