My Dear Friends:
Welcome to our Catholic faith community.
Our parish community is involved in many aspects of service. Our many volunteers truly help to make our Church a welcoming place to worship God and enter a profound experience with Jesus. There are many groups and activities in our parish, we hope you can join one.
We are grateful to parents who bring their child(ren) to our Masses, it is nice to hear life in the Church. If you have a child in JK to grade 2 we offer a children’s liturgy at our 10:15 Mass throughout the school year.
We always strive to bring the message of love and mercy of Jesus to all who come to our parish. If you are a long-time parishioner or a new parishioner or a visitor, we welcome you with open arms and hope you truly have a wonderful encounter with Jesus at St Joseph.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Jeff Bergsma
Pastor – St. Joseph Parish
Each ministry is committed to making a difference for Christ and improving the lives of others. If you need the services of one of our ministries or if you would like to volunteer…
It is a place we can all come together to worship, be encouraged, and learn from God's words for spiritual growth. “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.” Romans 17
