Welcome to Saint Joseph Catholic Community
No matter what your present status is in the Catholic Church,
No matter your current family or marital situation,
No matter your personal history, age, income, background,
gender, race, ethnicity, or spirituality,
No matter your own self-image of holiness or virtue –
You belong to Jesus Christ and you belong with us!
You are invited, accepted and respected here at SJCC.
We want to share our Roman Catholic way of faith and life in Christ with you.
I dedicate the implementation and the living out of this Plan to the Blessed Virgin Mary. She, the woman of faith who said yes to the Holy Spirit, who enabled the Word to become flesh within her, and who was quietly faithful even to standing at the foot of the cross, will help us. As St. Elizabeth said to Mary in the gospel of today’s feast: “Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” Our efforts will be blessed if we implement this Plan in the spirit of Mary and her way of being a disciple.
We, the members of Saint Joseph Catholic Community, embrace the Gospel as we celebrate the sacraments, share our faith, and create a spiritual home for our neighbors.
Inspired by the Blessed Virgin Mary’s willingness to say “yes” to the Holy Spirit, we:
Nourish and strengthen the faith of each individual and family,
Embody Jesus in our personal actions and parish ministries, and
Profess God’s message to our neighbors.
Each of us in our community, through our baptism, is called to grow in faith and to deepen our discipleship. Furthermore, we accept that we have a mission beyond ourselves to invite others to faith. Our Parish Pastoral Plan helps us to renew our faith and supports us as we invite others to take up the challenge of being disciples along with us.
