COVID-19 Information
Indiana Catholic bishops have extended the dispensation from the obligation of Sunday Mass attendance through November 1, 2020. On Monday, August 3, a statement was issued by the bishops, which reads: “While commending our pastors and pastoral life coordinators who have gone to great lengths to assure safe worship spaces in our churches, due to the increase in the COVID-19 cases in our state, the Indiana bishops have decided to extend the dispensation from the obligation of Sunday Mass attendance beyond August 15 until November 1, 2020, unless further developments determine otherwise.”

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

Saint Joseph Parish will continue with our normal Mass schedule while taking appropriate precautions. We also invite you to subscribe to our parish YouTube channel to access weekly Masses on video as well as other videos from the parish.

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.
