Strategic Goal:
To create a vibrant faith community that attracts, retains, celebrates, and leverages the talents of its diverse members through an active outreach program, an embracing welcome ministry, personal engagement, and a practically designed, well-maintained worship space and campus.

Our Hospitality ministry provides a friendly, welcoming face and serves food and drinks at special celebrations and scheduled “Hospitality Sundays.” If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please contact Maria Sasso.
Greeters and Ushers
Greeters and Ushers assist in welcoming people as they come to Mass, distribute bulletins, direct people to come forward to receive communion, and take up the collections. If you are interested, please contact Steve Dustin.



Living as missionary disciples, we encourage our members to learn more about the many ministries at St. Joseph parish and to pray how God might be calling them to participate. “Ministry Building Weekends” with hospitality are offered at various times throughout the year to enable to members to explore and have discussion with ministry leaders. To view a list of our many ministries, including our many outreach programs, please Click Here.


We currently have a capital campaign in progress, Magnifying God’s Love, Hope & Mercy, to respond to the call to build. This will equip us to adapt to our evolving needs as a parish and position us for future growth. The proposed projects will include several improvements to our facilities in order to provide a more welcoming appearance and improve upon the space we currently have.  To learn more about the campaign, please Click Here.
