The Lord's Watch: Nocturnal Adoration
The Saint Joseph Parish Pastoral Council is sponsoring an initiative to offer nocturnal adoration on Wednesday evenings at 9:00pm and concluding on Thursdays just before the 7:00am daily Mass, through the feast of Saint Joseph (March 19).

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. In addition to praying for our parish and our sister parish in Haiti (Mary Immaculate), we invite adorers to pray for sanctity in our families and for vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

Parishioners should feel free to come and pray between 9:00pm and 7:00am even if they have not signed up for a spot. If you would like to commit for at least 30-minutes, please signup now:

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.
