New Parishioners

Please take a blue registration form from the vestibule if you would like to register as a parishioner at St. Joseph.


Choir Members Wanted

Sacred music has a very important place in the worship of the Church. Having beautiful sacred music can only be achieved through much dedication on the part of the choir. New members are always welcome. Men are particularly needed at this time. If interested or if you would like some more information, please contact (please be sure to write “Choir” in the subject line). Rehearsals are currently on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 in St. Joseph’s Hall (a.k.a. the basement).


Pray for Our Pastor and Our Parochial Vicar

Please remember to keep Fr. Stinson, FSSP and Fr. Insco, FSSP in your daily prayers.


A Prayer for Priests

O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Thy Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood. Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. Let Thy Holy Love surround them from the world's contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and their everlasting crown hereafter. O Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us; obtain for us many holy priests. Amen.
