Mission & Vision

"Ignited by the Eucharist to Love & Serve"

- the Mission Statement of St. Joseph Parish

 

For more than a 100 years, the Catholic community of St. Joseph Parish
has come together to follow Jesus Christ in word and sacrament,
in the education of our young, and in the service of all our sisters and brothers.

To be a member of the St. Joseph Community today
is to follow Christ with your sisters & brothers through three steps:

  1. ACTIVATION: to choose St. Joseph as your community of faith through registration, either on-line or in person;
  2. AFFIRMATION: to claim annually St. Joseph as your community through your pledge of prayer and support;
  3. PARTICIPATION: to live in the community of St. Joseph through engagement in the life and ministry of the Parish.

We are a covenant people, whose faith invites us:

  • To pursue a living relationship with God through “full, active, & conscious participation” in liturgy & personal growth in prayer;
  • To participate in the community of St. Joseph through active involvement in groups composed of parishioners & others;
  • To expand the circle of grace found at St. Joseph through engagement & loving solidarity with those on the margins of society;
  • To deepen our understanding & wisdom about our faith through study, reflection, & other methods that feed our desire for God;
  • To provide for the continuing life of the whole St. Joseph Community through the sharing of our goods & talents.
