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. Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15a.m., first Fridays from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m., and on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in St. Joseph’s Hall (a.k.a. the basement).

The Little Flowers Girls' Club is for girls ages 6 and up. We meet on First Saturdays after Mass and Exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Please contact Christine for additional information.

Youth Group

All teens in the parish are invited to participate in teen night on the third Friday of each month. The evening begins with 6:30 p.m. Mass, followed by Exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. For more information, please see the bulletin or sign up to receive our parish news.

St. Joseph Parish Homeschool Group

Saint Joseph Parish Homeschool Group is an association of Catholic parents, operated by St. Joseph’s Latin Mass Parish, who are faithful to the scholastic tradition of the Church. As a homeschool group, we provide education, encouragement, and support to Catholic homeschooling families through a variety of activities. Our goal is to help each other foster a Catholic culture in our homes. As the principal and first educators of our children, may we always remember that our primary responsibility in home education is teaching the Faith to our children, so that they might one day become saints.

Our membership year runs from September to August; however, we accept members year round. Membership must be renewed each year by completing the group registration form and submitting dues. Annual dues are $50 for families with at least one child age 6 or older, $25 if all children are age 5 & under. Payment plans and partial scholarships are available upon request.

"Happy the priest who loves his pastor's lot and lives wholly in it, fulfilling day by day the slight and despised acts of charity to all who need his care, and laying up in heaven unconsciously the gold dust of a humble life, looking only for his eternal reward."
