Happening now at Saint Joseph...
St. Joseph the Worker Family Building Project
As we continue our celebration of the “Year of St. Joseph,” the Saint Joseph Christian Formation Commission is hosting a building project for children that honors St. Joseph and all father-figures. We invite parents (mothers and fathers both welcome!) to sign up to create wooden images of St. Joseph with their children. This project will take place after the 10am Mass on Sunday, June 27, and should take about 45 minutes. At this time we are planning on gathering outside on the blacktop between the church and school buildings if the weather permits; our rain location will be inside the parish gymnasium. Participants should feel free to bring along a family tool(s), and at the conclusion of the event, Fr. Matt will conduct a blessing of these tools. Donuts and coffee will be provided.

So that we can have an accurate estimate for the number of supplies needed, if you are interested in participating in The St. Joseph Project, please RSVP by completing this form or by sending an email directly to Paul Blaschko ( indicating how many children will be participating.

Mass Information
Update 5/21/2021: Please see a statement from the Indiana bishops regarding the impending restoration of the Sunday & Holy Day Mass obligation. Except for the unique situations as described in the statement, those who are otherwise healthy are obliged to return to Sunday Mass by the weekend of June 12-13, 2021.

In addition, new liturgy directives from the diocese indicate that face coverings are now optional at public liturgies (health authorities recommend that unvaccinated individuals still wear masks) and strict social distancing is no longer required in churches. For the time being, a section of the north side of our church will continue to be set aside with socially distanced seating in order to accommodate those who would be more comfortable with that arrangement.

Please note that anyone (whether vaccinated or not) that is ill should still remain home. For those unable to attend in person, the 5:00pm Saturday Vigil Mass will continue to be broadcast live and on demand on our parish YouTube channel and Facebook page each week.

Flowers for St. Joseph
During the Year of St. Joseph, we have moved our statue of St. Joseph forward to a more prominent location in the front corner of the church. There are votive candles, a kneeler, and prayer cards available to invite moments of prayer. Members of the parish are invited to bring in flowers to place by the statue. Sign up here to bring in flowers. Contact Theresa Slott at with any questions.

Learn About & Support Hope Ministries
Hope Ministries, a faith based ministry in South Bend, seeks to transform the lives of its guests who have suffered the ravaging effects of poverty, addiction, and homelessness. The pandemic has created new and unexpected challenges for Hope and our parish’s ministry there. Demand has skyrocketed. On a typical pre-pandemic first Friday, the parish would serve around 100 people. Now that demand has more than doubled to 250 people. Plus, we can no longer cook and serve the meal. For the past year, parishioners have donated money, and volunteers have purchased the makings of hearty meal and delivered the supplies to Hope where guests and staff prepare and serve the meal. We are in need of regular, monthly donations to sustain Saint Joseph’s monthly work at Hope. Contributions in support of this ministry may now be made online at
