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.

High School Mission Trip 2019
Seven youth and four adult chaperones had the privilege of joining YouthWorks to work alongside and learn more about the Lakota people in Eagle Butte, South Dakota at the Cheyenne River Reservation. During out stay, we helped with Kids Club, painted and put up playground equipment at Windswept Academy, cleaned out rooms and put them back together at the local elementary school. We built shelving and counter tops, put up trim and painted tiny homes at the Mustard Seed, a shelter and food pantry. In the evenings, we visited the Cultural Center and heard stories of the Lakota people, we went to the Youth Projects Park where murals were displayed, and on our last night we had the pleasure of hosting a cook-out for the community, serving about 200 people. It was an amazing experience and very rewarding!
