Welcome to St. Joseph's Parish and St. John's Mission

We strive as a Christian community in the Catholic tradition to serve God and our neighbors. We commit to grow through collaboration in service, stewardship, and education within and beyond our community.

Contact Father Charles Banduku:
    • If you are new to the parish.  Father Charles is looking forward to welcoming you.
    • If you are a baptized Catholic and have not been to Mass in a while.
    • If you would like to schedule a home visit or home blessing.
    • If you or someone you know needs Holy Communion in the home. 
    • If you or a family member is hospitalized or sick at home, please let us know so that we can offer the Sacrament of the Sick and communion.

    The Sacrament for Anointing of the Sick is for anyone facing serious illness or surgery; failing health; or the need for any physical, mental or emotional healing. You don't have to be dying to receive this sacrament.  It is an expression of God's presence and healing power and care. The Sacrament of the Sick can be received more than once.

    One of the first prayers Catholics learn is the Sign of the Cross.  It is a profession of faith in the Holy Trinity, three Persons united in One Divinity. God wants us to live in harmony as the most Holy Trinity does.
    Do we love one another as the Holy Trinity loves us?
