Happening now at Saint Joseph...
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is Montessori-based religious education for children. At Saint Joseph, we offer Level I, which serves children ages 3-6. After school atrium will meet in the Ackles Center on Wednesdays from 3:15-4:30, beginning October 7. Cost is $75 for one child or $125 for two children, but cost should not be a barrier for anyone. Scholarships available on request. 

Children who attend Saint Joseph Grade School or Preschool will be walked to the Ackles Center after school by an adult catechist. Please note that children in Saint Joseph Preschool come to the atrium during the course of the school day. They are welcome to participate in our afternoon atrium, but priority will be given to children who do not already have access to the atrium in order to serve as many children as possible.

Online registration is available now. For more information, contact Katie Ball-Boruff at 574-234-3134 or

CCD Registration

As part of our parish’s educational mission, the Children’s Catechetical Development Program (or CCD) provides formation and sacramental preparation for students who attend non-Catholic schools. CCD begins Sunday, September 13, in the Ackles Parish Life Center. Classes meet every Sunday from September to May, from 8:40am to 9:45am. 

Register online now for children in Pre-K through 8th grade (Confirmation Preparation). Please note that all families wishing for their children to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, or Confirmation must enroll their children in CCD. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fatima Monterrubio Cruess, Director of Christian Formation, at 574-234-3134 or

Goal: $900,000  |  Current total: $780,136 (as of August 24)
Our target date is here but it is not too late to help us reach our goal! Drop your pledge forms at Mass or at the parish or school office!

We are still shooting for our goal to secure $900,000 in pledges in order to complete the final phase of our campaign projects -- a school addition with classrooms and a gymnasium, and improved green space -- that will serve our parish in numerous ways for generations to come! 

The generations of Saint Joe faithful that have come before us have left us a great legacy. I feel that we have been blessed in many ways, and I give thanks to God. I pray that each of you, too, will see God’s glory in the work before us, be inspired by the underlying mission we seek to strengthen, and find within yourselves a desire to give in gratitude.

Thank you to those who have already stepped up with great enthusiasm towards this initiative! I continue to be humbled by the generosity within our Saint Joseph community. Know that I welcome any questions you might have as you prayerfully consider your support. For your convenience, you may download a pledge form here.

May God bless our parish named in honor of his faithful servant Saint Joseph, and may God bless each of you!

Fr. Kevin Russeau, C.S.C.
