A Note From The Padre

Upon my arrival at St. Joseph Parish, I witnessed with great pleasure a faith-filled community, centered on the Eucharist and service. What a blessing it is for me to be part of this family and to serve all of you.

My hope is to see all of us join hands and efforts together to build a strong Catholic Culture in our parish. With eyes fixed on our caring patron, St. Joseph, let us walk with resolve to invigorate our families and our parish life. Strong families, strong parish!

We are a parish built on…
