What does God want for you?
What do you want from God?
What does God do for you?
Take advantage of this opportunity to reflect, refresh, and ask questions, to deepen your faith.

From Fr. Phil Schoofs: "I am a native of Wisconsin and worked as a CPA for many years before being ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico on August 26, 2004. I have served at a rural parish for one year; served as Director of Caritas, the charitable organization of the Archdiocese for seven years; and served as pastor of the parish of San Antonio de Padua in Morelia for six years. I am really anxious to serve the people here while assigned to St. Benedicts' Abbey and Retreat Center in Benet Lake."

Welcome to St. Joseph Parish. We are followers of Jesus Christ and we gather weekly in His name. We believe that each person has been blessed and gifted by the Holy Spirit. We encourage everyone to respond to their baptismal call by sharing their time, talents and treasures and we believe that by doing so, we will become true disciples of the Lord. We invite you to join us in this fellowship.
Calendar of Events
Three Amazing Lenten Prayer Opportunities:
Taizé Prayer Service Offerings
Thursdays, March 14, March 28 and April 11
6:30 p.m. at St. Joseph Church
The Swanson family with Luke Moyta are excited to share the healing, meditative, and powerful experience of Taizé prayer with the tri-parish community this Lent. Take time to reconnect, reflect, and strengthen your faith. Taizé prayer is a meditative, ecumenical service that includes simple songs, scripture, a procession of light, five minutes of silence/contemplation, and prayers for all God’s people. The Taizé community is based in Taizé, France, and includes Catholic and Protestant monks. The goal of the community is to bring people of all faiths together in prayer and silence to create peace and justice across the globe. We are most familiar with the common Taizé hymn “Jesus Remember Me” that we sing each Lent. The service lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. Come and worship with us, enjoy great music, deepen your faith, and experience the healing power of Taizé while strengthening your “prayer” pillar of Lent.
