Christmas Children's Choir

Christmas will soon be here and we would like to invite the children of the parish to join the Children's Choir for Christmas. The choir sings at the 4:00pm Mass on Christmas Eve, December 24, with a prelude that begins at 3:30pm. Children will need to arrive and be in place ready to sing by 3:10pm. See more details on the online signup.

Advent Reconciliation Service

Our annual Advent Reconciliation Service will take place Tuesday, December 19, at 7:00pm in the church. Materials are made available for guidance. Don’t miss this opportunity to be reconciled to Christ and His Church so that you may welcome the Lord with joy when he comes!

Quiet Evening in the Church

Save the date now for Thursday, December 21, from 5:00-9:00pm, when the church will be open for quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. This is simply an opportunity to slow down and spend time with God in this Advent season. Come when you can and stay as long as you wish.

Advent/Christmas Mass Times

This year, Christmas falls on a Monday. We still have a Mass obligation for the Fourth Sunday of Advent even though Christmas Eve Masses begin on Sunday evening. As a convenience for parishioners who may wish to space these obligations, Saint Joseph will offer an additional Fourth Sunday Vigil Mass, at 6:30pm on Saturday, December 23. The full schedule of Masses is as follows: 

Fourth Sunday of Advent
December 23 – 5:00pm, 6:30pm
December 24 – 8:00am, 10:00am 

December 24 – 4:00pm, 7:00pm, midnight
December 25 – 10:00am

Annual Bishop's Appeal

"The generosity of the faithful in our diocese in the Annual Bishop’s Appeal is a testament to their faith and love  for God and His Church. I am very grateful for the sacrifices of so many to ensure that the ministries and good works of our diocese continue." ~Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades

The Bishop’s Appeal supports the diverse ministries, apostolates, and services of the Church in our diocese. At the same time, it promotes our unity in supporting the Church’s works of evangelization, education, pastoral care, and charity. Through your generosity in the Bishop’s Appeal, you are supporting and expressing your love for Christ and one another and our unity as one body in Christ. View this year's Appeal Video.

Thank you for your generosity in supporting this year's Appeal. Any funds collected by Saint Joseph Parish beyond our parish's goal are returned to the parish to support our parish. Pledge forms are available in our church or at the parish office. You may also donate online now.
