Classes meet every Sunday from September to May, from 8:40am to 9:45am. 

Register online now for children in Pre-K through 8th grade (Confirmation Preparation). Please note that all families wishing for their children to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, or Confirmation must enroll their children in CCD. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fatima Monterrubio Cruess, Director of Christian Formation, at 574-234-3134 or

Parish Picnic Volunteer Signup

The annual Saint Joseph Parish Picnic is Saturday, August 22, beginning at 5:00pm (the 5:00pm Mass that day will be moved to 4:00pm). This year's event will take place in the parking lots of the Ackles Parish Life Center, and will feature live music, bouncy houses, and more fun for kids, teens, and adults.

Many volunteers are needed to make this event a success! Please consider volunteering your time by signing up online now. Opportunities are available in the weeks leading up to the event as well as on picnic day. Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the life of the parish and get to know your fellow parishioners better! For questions, contact the parish office at 574-234-3134.

Goal: $900,000  |  Current total: $772,402 (as of July 23)
Our target date is here but it is not too late to help us reach our goal! Drop your pledge forms at Mass or at the parish or school office!

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!
