Welcome to the Church of Saint Joseph Website

Dear Parishioners, Friends, and Visitors,

In my own name and on behalf of the entire Pastoral Staff, welcome to the website of the Church of St. Joseph, Garden City.

I hope you find our website a helpful way  to get to know who we are as a parish and the various ministries through which we fulfill our mission to be a community of worship, faith formation, and compassionate service.  As you browse through the site, please acquaint yourself with our liturgical and sacramental schedule, note up-coming events, and consider the many opportunities our parish offers for your personal involvement in the rich and varied life that is ours at St. Joseph.  I encourage you to take advantage of the links to other resources connecting our life at  St. Joseph to the larger Catholic Church community in our Diocese, our nation, and around the world.

Through the intercession of St. Joseph, patron of our Parish and of the Universal Church, may you and your loved ones be abundantly blessed.

Reverend Msgr. James P. Swiader

Pastor

Mission Statement

The Parish of St. Joseph celebrates the good news of Jesus Christ by giving witness to His real presence in our midst;

► We express our faith through prayer, especially in the celebration of the Eucharist and Sacraments.

► We continually form and strengthen our faith by embracing and teaching the word of God and trusting in the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

► We comfort and give hope to the sick and the grieving and reach out to those in spiritual or material need with compassion and love.

► We offer hospitality and warmly welcome all people to share the joy and peace of Jesus.

Founded on Faith, Growing in Hope, Serving in Love
