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.

The St. Joseph Catholic Church Knights of Columbus and Ladies Guild offers scholarships to graduating high school seniors and home school students on a competitive basis. Scholarships will be awarded based on service to St. Joseph, as well as activities and leadership in the church, school and community. The dollar amount has not been determined. Preference will be given to St. Joseph Knights of Columbus and Ladies Guild family members.

To qualify, you must be an active member or daughter/son or dependent of a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, per the current church directory. You also must graduate from high school or complete home schooling in the 2020-21 academic year. Finally, you must be accepted at any 2- or 4-year college or vocational school. Applications are available in the Knights of Columbus mailbox. Return your typed and signed application to the Knights mailbox by 10 a.m. on Sunday, March 14. Disbursement will be made upon verification of college attendance. You may contact Kevin Schuster at kevin.schuster@ymail.com with questions.

Beginning Thursday, November 12, Social Distancing for non-family members will be required. The pews have once again been taped off and seating limited to basically each end and the very center of each pew that is open for occupancy. Family members may sit together however. Please remember to keep that same distance when entering, exiting and going to Communion. Thank you!  If you have any questions, please contact Fr. Gutgsell.

With Lent quickly approaching, beginning Friday February 19th after the 8am mass, and every Friday following, we will pray the the Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Come join as a special devotion for the Lenten season. Last Friday will be March 26th.
