Mission Statement

St. Joseph Catholic Church, in union with the Universal Church, proclaims our belief in the message and mission of Jesus Christ. We nurture that belief through active participation in the Liturgy, embracing stewardship as a way of life, committing to life-long faith formation, reaching out to those who are in need, and welcoming all who wish to grow with us in faith. We nourish our community by recognizing and sharing our God-given talents and living our lives as a visible presence of Christ.

Vision Statement:

To Know the Lord . . .
We accept the obligation to understand the faith and increase our awareness of Christ in our daily lives. "Seek first the kingdom of God . . . and all these things will be given to you besides." (Mt. 6:33)

To Love the Lord . . .
We embrace the obligation to worship and praise the Lord by participating whole-heartedly in the sacramental life of the church and to show our love of the Lord by example. "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind." (Mt. 22:37)

To Serve the Lord . . .
We hold the obligation as Christians to generously share our gifts of time, talent and treasure for the benefit of others and to fulfill Christ's mission. "I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers or sisters of mine, you did for me." (Mt. 25:40)   Pastoral Council 1999
