St. Joseph Catholic Community is a parish family united by a common faith whose mission is: to proclaim and live the Good News of Jesus; to worship God according to the Catholic tradition; to be a welcoming, loving community; to serve the educational and social needs of the community; to reach out to all, especially the poor, the disenfranchised and the most vulnerable of the world - to bring all people to Jesus Christ.

Upcoming Events

Tuesday, May 14, Ladies Guild Meeting 7:00 p.m., in RE Center

Believe it or not it is that time of year to think about mowing the grass. Once again we ask for your help. If every able-bodied family would sign up for one week we could cover the entire mowing season. Too often it falls on the same person who does it when no one else will. There is a calendar on the credenza with all the dates available. We only ask that you mow on Thursday, Friday or Saturday so it is nice for the weekend. Please consider using this as a way of offering your time and talent.

St. Joseph Church has two wheelchairs available for anyone who needs assistance getting into or out of the church. A chair is located in the South entryway. (The front door we do not use). Feel free to borrow this chair if you need it.


If you need to reach the church secretary, (Sharon VanTassell) the email address has changed. Please email us secretary68059@gmail.com


We need volunteers to  help with totus Tuus!  One person is needed to help run the kitchen.  We  need 3 volunteers every day in te kitchen to help with making lunches for Totus Tuus staff and with snack times.  We also need to have 2 host families (one for the 2 girls and one for the 2 boys) that can offer them  meals and a place to stay that is relatively close to the church.  If yoy are interested in helping, please contact Sherry at shuntwork@msn.com or call 402-253-2949 ext. 4.
