Happening now at Saint Joseph...
Annual Bishop's Appeal
Thank you to those who have made gifts to the Annual Bishop’s Appeal. If you did not yet make an Annual Appeal pledge, we hope you will take time to do so today. No gift is too small (or too big)! Please give from the heart so that the many great ministries of our diocese can continue to be funded. We hope that all parishioners will participate; funds over our diocesan goal will directly support our parish ministries.

Additional pledge forms are available in the church and at the parish office. You may also view more information or give online at Thank you again for your support of our diocesan and parish ministries!

10th Annual Saint Nick Six
Saint Nick SixThe Saint Nick Six is a great community event kicking off the season of Advent and celebrating a saint while promoting fitness and an active lifestyle. Not a runner? Come participate in the 3K Walk or just come join the festivities and support others in the race! Proceeds from the race benefit Saint Joseph Grade School, the educational ministry of Saint Joseph Parish. This year's Saint Nick Six once again features the shorter 3K Run as well as the popular "Run, Run, Rudolph .06K" for little reindeer in 1st grade and younger. Register online now!

Volunteers also needed! Thank you for offering your assistance.

Evening with Mary
Please join us for our Evening with Mary on the vigil of the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception on Friday, December 7, from 6:15-8:00pm (following the 5:30pm vigil Mass) in Founder's Hall at the Ackles Center. Come enjoy a presentation and discussion about the life of our Blessed Mother led by Anthony Pagliarini, theology professor at Notre Dame, followed by time for food and fellowship. The parish will provide the main course; all attendees are invited to bring something to share (but this is absolutely not needed to attend!). Child care will also be provided during the talk!

RSVPs are appreciated but not required. Please especially let us know if you will be in need of childcare. Email Sean Driscoll at with any questions. 

Advent/Christmas Children's Choirs
