Word of the Week

Word of the Week -

Our Word of the Week: Reverence

Bible Verse: " Great blessings belong to those who fear and respect the Lord and live they way he wants."

Our virtue of the month for October is Reverence.


Tithing -



If the parent is a registered, financially supporting member of St. Joseph Catholic Parish, a tuition benefit is available to that parent. To qualify for tuition as a financially supporting parishioner, a family’s weekly contribution to St. Joseph Church should be a minimum of $8.00/week ($416 annually). These contributions are to be made in full by December 31, 2017. Contributions made after December 31, 2017 will not count toward tithing for 2017 and tuition rates will not be adjusted for the next school year (2018-2019). Regular use of the Sunday envelope is necessary as a sign of financial support of the Church.
