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
Cold Hands Warm Heart
October 26 & 27
This overnight experience of sleeping outside in a cardboard box is a prayerful and interactive way for our high school students to better understand the complex issue of homelessness in our community. There will be a second collection for Cold Hands Warm Heart at all parishes on October 19 & 20. All funds raised are donated to the Transitional Living Center, the homeless shelter in Burlington. This year the students will also be making "Blessing Bags" for TLC. For more information, contact Ellie Schultz at [email protected] or visit https://www.mystcharles.org/about/cold-hand.cfm
Mass of Healing
Sunday, October 27 at 2:00 p.m.
St. Joseph Parish Center
This Tri-Parish Mass will accommodate those for whom getting into the church is difficult, and will fulfill your Sunday obligation. As Catholics, we believe that healing occurs during all Masses. God wants to heal us and will heal through the powerful gift given to us by the Holy Spirit. This is one of God's gifts to his Church. During a Healing Mass, we invite the Holy Spirit into our hearts in order that a healing may take place. In addition to the Anointing of the Sick, special prayer will be offered for those in need of any type of healing. There will be a reception with light refreshments immediately after Mass.
