In Reconciliation, the Confession, we receive complete forgiveness from God for our sins through the words of the priest. It is a wonderful way to receive God’s grace – the assurance of God’s presence and mercy for us, and the strength to continue on the paths of holiness.

Every Saturday

Welcome to our Parish

Here at St. Joseph’s we grow as “stewards” of God’s gifts to us. We try to recognize the many ways in which God has blessed us and respond by giving thanks not only with our words but by the way we celebrate our faith and live our lives. This enables us to deepen our understanding of what the Gospel Message means in our lives today.

Jesus gave us the sacraments so that we can closely relate to God throughout life's transitions. The sacraments help us nourish, strengthen, and express our faith.

Contact the Parish Office for Baptism, First Holy Communion, Confession, Confirmation, Marriage,  and Annointing of the Sick.

But do you know the seventh sacrament?
