Welcome

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

It is my great joy to welcome you to St. Joseph Parish website.

St. Joseph’s is a parish rich in history and tradition, blessed with faithful parishioners, and active in prayer and ministry. We were founded in 1901; and in the decades that have followed, we have grown into a community of vibrant Catholic identity that expresses itself in prayer and worship, in faith formation for parishioners of all ages, and in compassionate ministry to all in any need.

I hope you will take some time to become acquainted with the many dimensions of our parish life as you scroll through the website: our Pastoral Staff, St. Joseph Parish School and Religious Education Program, our parish Social Ministry, parish organizations such as our Rosary/Altar Society, our CYO program, out Knights of Columbus Council – all of which are grounded in our spiritual life that celebrates in Liturgy and Sacrament the Real Presence of Christ among us.

Please get to know us. Our doors – and our hearts – are always open!

Reverend Msgr. James P. Swiader
Pastor

A PRAYER FOR UKRAINE

God of infinite mercy and goodness,
with needy hearts we pray to you today for
Peace.
Your Son reminded us that peacemakers are
blessed,
“for they shall be called children of God,”
that we are to “hunger and thirst for
righteousness.”
His first Resurrection gift was His Peace to
his frightened Church.
We pray to you for the people of Ukraine
who are experiencing warfare, violence, and
deaths.
Bless the leaders with wisdom, vision, and
perseverance
to work for justice and healing in a swift and
just end to this conflict.
To you we entrust all families and pray that
You will shield them from discouragement
and despair;
that they may be heralds of hope to one
another.
May you continue to inspire all of us
to oneness of heart and mind,
to work generously for the common good,
to respect the dignity of every person
and the fundamental rights which have
their origin
in the image and likeness of God
in which you have created us.
Grant eternal rest to the dead
and quick recovery to the wounded.
We pray through Christ our Lord, Amen!
