Mission Statement

Building Faith & Knowledge for Life!

We, the people of God at St. Joseph Catholic Church & School, acknowledge the mission of Holy Mother Church as seeking the salvation of souls by making disciples of all nations—teaching them all that Jesus Christ has commanded (Mt. 28:19-20).

Through the overarching mission of Catholic education, we strive to promote the proper understanding of Catholic faith & values in union with our Bishop, Most Reverend Robert Guglielmone, faithful to the Holy Father, Pope Francis, and true to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

We respond to God’s call to know Him, love Him, and serve Him through Prayer & Worship, Formation & Evangelization, Community Building, Community Outreach, and Stewardship & Communication by Building Faith & Knowledge for Life within our parish and throughout our local community.

  • Through Prayer & Worship, we nurture in our hearts and minds the seeds of faith given to us by the grace of God.
  • Through Formation & Evangelization, we sow God’s love & mercy by teaching others about Him, who is Love.
  • Through Community Building, we cultivate ourselves in order to bear the fruit of God’s grace & blessing in our lives.
  • Through Community Outreach, we sow the seeds of peace & hope within our culture.
  • Through Stewardship & Communication, we sharpen ourselves & our brethren to reap the harvest from that which has been sown.

In all things, our focus is our Lord, Jesus Christ. We thrive on His presence in the Blessed Sacrament. We pray daily for vocations and encourage an atmosphere for all to say “yes” to God’s call to be the light of the world (Mt. 5: 14). Empowered by Baptism and sealed with the Holy Spirit, we instill and exemplify Christian Leadership throughout our parish with our time, talent, and treasure.

At St. Joseph Catholic Church & School, we are Building Faith & Knowledge for Life!
