We the parishioners of St. Joseph’s Parish, inspired by the Holy Spirit, welcome the privilege to proclaim the Gospel and thank God for the challenge of our faith. As a parish, we value our faith and commit ourselves to: Worship God through the holy Sacrifice of the Mass, frequent sacramental participation, self-sacrifice, prayer and meditation, and offering of daily actions to the honor and glory of God. Create and nourish our Christian community by encouraging involvement of all generations in parish activities; enriching the domestic family and cultivating a parish community centered in Christ. Spread the Good News by proclaiming the saving message of Christ through our words and actions; inviting others to share in our faith. Teach the message of Christ by providing a variety of educational opportunities; helping us to grow in our faith. Serve the needs of our parish family and the entire community through spiritual and corporal works of charity. Through the intercession of Mary our Mother, and St. Joseph, our parish patron, we pray to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that the Lord of Light may guide us in our earthly journey and to our heavenly home.
