elcome ! The roots of Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church go back to 1765 when German immigrants settled in this area and were ministered to by Fr. Ferdinand Farmer [Steinmeier],  a Jesuit missionary from St. Joseph Church in Philadelphia.  Since that time there has been unbroken sacramental activity in this parish, the oldest in the state. 

 

Celebration of Our Jubilee Year
 
We are all honored to be an integral part, by our own steadfast fidelity, of bringing St. Joseph Parish to this milestone - this Jubilee Year. The word Jubilee in the Hebrew Christian context includes the sounding of the ram’s horn in order to call attention of all the faithful to listen to a joyful proclamation.
Look and admire, study and learn, hear in it your own call to participate in the 250th Year of Faith of St. Joseph Parish so that we become, as it were, living history. We want all to hear shouts of joy and praise and thanksgiving; we want all to know why we are rejoicing!

INTENTIONAL DISCIPLES - KNOWING AND FOLLOWING JESUS

Most Catholics have heard Pope Francis speak about discipleship.  What does it mean to be a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ?  During Lent small groups of parishioners are meeting to pray, reflect and have conversations about the meaning of discipleship. All are invited to explore this question at home.  The small booklet being used:  Intentional Disciples:  Hear Jesus’ Call and Respond can be downloaded here
                                              
Please join us in intercessory prayer:

Most Holy Trinity, send your Spirit to the parishioners of St. Joseph Parish.
Make them conscious of  their discipleship to our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Amen.
