The Lord's Watch Adoration

If you would like to commit for at least 30-minutes, please signup now:

May 28-29 Signup
June 4-5 Signup
June 11-12 Signup

Please note: the only entrance and exit we will be using for adoration is located between the church and the rectory. We suggest that parishioners park on the blacktop between the rectory and the school.

Easter Season Morning & Evening Prayer

Saint Joseph Parish will be offering video recordings of Morning and Evening Prayer for each weekday of the Easter season while we are separated by social distancing. The videos will be made available each day on our parish YouTube Channel.

Morning and Evening Prayer are part of the Liturgy of the Hours, which is the daily prayer of the Church, marking the hours of each day and sanctifying the day with prayer. In the Hours, the royal priesthood of the baptized is exercised, and this sacrifice of praise is thus connected to the sacrifice of the Eucharist, both preparing for and flowing from the Mass. It is our hope that while we are separated by distance, we can remain together in prayer. 

Easter Music

Saint Joseph Music Director Theresa Slott has put together an Easter playlist on Spotify for those who wish to celebrate the season with music!

COVID-19 Information
With the spread of COVID-19 accelerating and more stringent measures being recommended by the CDC and other civil authorities, Bishop Rhoades has issued a number of directives as well as guidance for Catholics in the diocese.

Please see the diocesan COVID-19 website for more details on the Bishop's directives as well as information for Catholics, such as livestream and TV Mass information, as well as prayers and resources such as "spiritual communion."

As for Saint Joseph Parish specifically, the parish office will be closed and all parish activities are canceled until further notice, with the exception of nocturnal Adoration each Wednesday evening (see information below). Our CCD program, our grade school, and our preschool will be closed through May 1. Pastoral Team members are available via email or by appointment. Please reach out to Fr. Kevin via email if you have any questions or sacramental needs. The phone number for sacramental emergencies is 574-635-5860.

Buildings & Maintenance Collection
Parishioners and friends, thank you for your generosity to our Buildings & Maintenance Collection, which supports our 2019 boiler replacement project as well as numerous other facilities improvements in our parish. Donate online now!

In the fall of 2019, our parish took out a three-year loan for $250,000 in order to replace two failing steam boilers with several localized water heaters, located in both the church and school. In our facilities planning, we anticipated that this project was still several years away, but the surprisingly rapid deterioration of the boilers, and our inability to continue repairing them, necessitated that we take on this project immediately to ensure heat in our buildings during winter. Your generosity will allow us to pay off this debt sooner so that we can continue to allocate money towards other capital projects and needs in our parish.

Thank you for making a one-time or recurring donation to support the Buildings & Maintenance Collection to help fund this boiler replacement project. Each contribution will make a difference! If you have any questions, please contact Sean Kennedy at or 574-234-3134, ext. 17.
