Welcome to our parish website!  I am so very happy that you are visiting our online home! We are a Bible believing community of faith! Our family strives to be a welcoming, embracing and loving community of believers announcing the Good News of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with a passion!
Our church family is very diverse reminding us that in the kingdom of God there is no division but all are one as brothers and sisters with one Father of all. We come together for the central celebration of our faith, the Holy Eucharist, to feast on the Word of God in the first part of our celebration and in the second part we feast on the body and blood of Jesus as we share Jesus’ body and blood which He left us as memorial of His passion, death and resurrection.
If you are looking for a church to call your home, please know that you are welcome at St. Joseph’s. If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am here to serve you! 

Life is beautiful when it is lived with faith. So, fear not, just believe, for the Lord is with us!
With an assurance of my prayers for you and your loved ones, I am your servant and brother in the Lord Jesus,
Father Adam Kotas

     Message From Pope Francis:      

I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them;  I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord”.  The Lord does not disappoint those who take this risk;  whenever we take a step towards Jesus, we come to realize that he is already there, waiting for us with open arms. Now is the time to say to Jesus:

“Lord, I have let myself be deceived;  in a thousand ways I have shunned your love, yet here I am once more, to renew my covenant with you.  I need you. Save me once again, Lord, take me once more into your redeeming embrace”. __Pope Francis (Evangelii Gaudium §3)

August 26, 2014 (date changed due to travel of members) – Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel

This novel of awesome beauty and power is a moving saga about people, relationships, and the boundaries of love. Through Jean M. Auel’s magnificent storytelling we are taken back to the dawn of modern humans, and with a girl named Ayla we are swept up in the harsh and beautiful Ice Age world they shared with the ones who called themselves The Clan of the Cave Bear.
