Thank you for visiting our online home.
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.
If you are looking for a church to call your home, please know that you are not only welcome but necessary at St. Joseph’s. Each of us is needed to build God's reign on earth with our compassion, kindness, love, forgiveness, and faith.
Life is beautiful when it is lived with God at its center. So, fear not, for the Lord is with us!
God bless you and your loves ones.
FROM POPE FRANCIS
“Grace is not part of consciousness; it is the amount of light in our souls, not knowledge nor reason.” __Pope Francis
“This church with which we should be thinking is the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people. We must not reduce the bosom of the universal church to a nest protecting our mediocrity.”__Pope Francis
“How do we receive the Word of God? As one receives Jesus Christ. The Church tells us that Jesus is present in the Scripture, in His Word. I have advised you many times to always carry a small Gospel with you — moreover, it costs little to buy it, to keep it in your purse, in your pocket, and read a passage from the Gospel during the day. Some practical advice, not so much to learn something, but mostly to find Jesus, because Jesus actually is in His Word, in His Gospel. Every time I read the Gospel, I find Jesus”. __Pope Francis
"Without faith you cannot live without scandal and always forgiving. Only the light of faith, the faith that we have received: the faith of a merciful Father, a Son who gave His life for us, a Spirit that is within us and helps us grow, faith in the Church, faith in the people of God, baptized and holy. And this is a gift, faith is a gift. No one with books, going to conferences, can have faith. Faith is a gift of God that comes to you and this why the Apostles asked Jesus, 'Increase our faith!' ". ___Pope Francis
"The Lord never tires of forgiving: never!
It is we who tire of asking his forgiveness.
Let us ask for the grace not to tire of asking forgiveness,
because he never tires of forgiving."_______Pope Francis
