Goal: $900,000  |  Current total: $809,413 (as of October 30)
It is not too late to help us reach our goal! Drop your pledge forms at Mass or at the parish or school office!

Construction is underway but we are still shooting for our goal to secure $900,000 in pledges in order to complete the final phase of our campaign projects -- a school addition with classrooms and a gymnasium, and improved green space -- that will serve our parish in numerous ways for generations to come! 

The generations of Saint Joe faithful that have come before us have left us a great legacy. I feel that we have been blessed in many ways, and I give thanks to God. I pray that each of you, too, will see God’s glory in the work before us, be inspired by the underlying mission we seek to strengthen, and find within yourselves a desire to give in gratitude.

Thank you to those who have already stepped up with great enthusiasm towards this initiative! I continue to be humbled by the generosity within our Saint Joseph community. Know that I welcome any questions you might have as you prayerfully consider your support. For your convenience, you may download a pledge form here.

May God bless our parish named in honor of his faithful servant Saint Joseph, and may God bless each of you!

Fr. Kevin Russeau, C.S.C.
