There are no coincidences in life - only God incidences. It is no coincidence you are visiting our website, God in His love and care for you has led you here.
We are overjoyed you have stopped by our website.

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.
**SAINT OF THE DAY**
“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
"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
“I can clearly see that what the Church needs today is the ability to heal wounds and warm the hearts of faithful, it needs to be by their side. I see the Church as a field hospital after a battle. It’s pointless to ask a seriously injured patient whether his cholesterol or blood sugar levels are high! It’s his wounds that need to be healed. The rest we can talk about later. Now we must think about treating those wounds. And we need to start from the bottom.” ____Pope Francis
“And in the tablets of the law, there’s the law towards God and the law towards our neighbour and both of these go together. I can’t say: ‘But no, I follow the three commandments first and the others more or less.’ No, if you don’t follow one, you can’t follow the other and if you follow one you must follow the other. They are united: Love of God and love of our neighbour is one and the same thing and if you want to show genuine and not just formal penance, you must show it before God and also towards your brothers and towards your neighbour.”___Pope Francis
"Sin is not a stain that I must wash out. What I need to do is ask forgiveness and reconcile myself, not go to the drycleaners.... I have to go encounter Jesus who gave his life for me."
"Let the Church always be a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is welcomed, loved and forgiven."___Pope Francis
“…the Church’s going forth is the work of the Holy Spirit. It is he who is at work.”__Pope Francis
