About Saint Joseph’s
What is Unique about St. Joseph’s?
We know we’re not the only Church to choose from. To help you determine whether we’re a good fit for your needs, we’d like to tell you about a few things that make us unique.
Creative Character and Big Dreams.
We’re a church that eschews the notion that things should be done just “because that’s always the way we’ve done it.” At the same time, we strive to maintain a secure and stable environment knowing that not all change is good, and too much too fast disrupts the stability we need in our chaotic lives when we come here.
Embracing change but maintaining stability is a tough balancing act that presents challenges and mountains to climb, but that pushes us to live beyond our fears and grow. We are all called by God to face the future and what it brings, and we know that faith makes all things possible.
Opportunities for Personal and Spiritual Growth
We clearly recognize the value of the physical journey we take together as a community to grow in our spiritual lives. Nothing can replace the experience of Mass, the sense of purpose of serving in a ministry, or the fellowship of participating in a group. However, this journey can be augmented by the use of modern technology to enhance our journey of faith individually and collectively.
To do that, we have created an online community that utilizes the latest technology to support our members in their personal and spiritual growth, to equip them for service, and to enable them to form new groups that meet their unique needs. It facilitates communication between members as well as with the leadership team and reinforces our physical, spiritual journeys by helping members stay more connected despite the busy lives we all have.
Our goal is to support ordinary people to do extraordinary things, to create opportunities to be part of something bigger than oneself, and to change the way people think about church and themselves.
Weekend Mass at Saint Joseph’s is celebrated at five times, and each one has a unique character. Partly this is by design to support the diversity within our parish, but it also evolves from the members who regularly attend a specific Mass. Homilies are intended to challenge as well as inspire us, and an active music program is integral to the celebration of Mass.
