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.

Each night ends with dinner and sharing. Cost of the trip will be $930 + airfare (about $800). This includes all lodging, meals and transportation once we arrive. Fundraisers are being planned to help offset some of the cost. If you would like more details or are interested in going, contact Rita VanSchyndel at [email protected] or 262-763-2050.
There will be a brief informational gathering on Monday, January 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Center. We need to raise funds for our projects in the Dominican Republic as well as to offset trip costs, so fundraising will be discussed! If you cannot attend the meeting, please call Rita.
