One Rose, One Life is an annual fund raising campaign conducted by the Nebraska Knights of Columbus, for the Knights of Columbus Culture of Life Foundation of Nebraska. Over 94% of funds raised by the Foundation are used to support various pro-life causes, events & organizations. A portion of these funds were also used to aid in the purchase and installation of seven Ultrasound machines throughout the State of Nebraska, thru the K of C Supreme Council Ultrasound Initiative. In 2017 these ultrasound units provided by you and the Knights were responsible for 2,463 ultrasounds in Nebraska that saved the lives of 2,027 babies.Envelopes are in the bulletins this week and will be in the pews next week

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


Within the past year St. Joseph Parish has upgraded our security systems. After much discussion and prayer we have decided it is in the best interest of our parishioners to secure our doors during Mass. Approximately 5 minutes after mass has started our church doors will automatically lock. Ushers will be available to assist in entry or re-entry at the appropriate times.

We have an opening for a person to come and pray for an hour from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone to have some quiet time to meditate and pray. Also, there is not a limit to the number of people who come for an hour. Anyone can sign up to do so. Please contact Sharon or Fr. Gutgsell.
