WELCOME TO OUR PARISH COMMUNITY!
We’re so thankful you’re here. It is our joy to welcome you to St. Joseph Catholic Church community, a place that welcomes all ages, cultures, and walks of life and strives to build the Kingdom of God.
St. Joseph is a great place to be with many active ministries and an incredible school. We have 800 registered families, and we aim to be a community that works to lovingly evangelize the world and community around us. We also have a parish school and Mother's Day Out. Our grade school is co-ed and serves Pre-K through 8th grade. Our Mother's Day Out is a wonderful environment for our 1s and 2s.
If there is any way that we as a parish can meet your spiritual or sacramental needs, please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you would like to find an opportunity to serve at our parish please see our "Get Connected" tab. We would love for you to not only join our parish but to also join us in transforming our community. We look forward to praying, serving, and walking with you!
First time tips
Especially if you have kids that are attending the nursery. Our nursery is located in the side entrance (under the covered walkway connecting the Family Life Center and St. Joseph Activity Center).
We are excited to have you join us and want all to feel comfortable. We ask that you dress as to not distract those around you from focusing on the Mass.
I'm not Catholic
We love having visitors from all walks of life join us in celebrating Holy Mass. Catholics believe that the host is literally the body of Christ, transformed from bread by the priest presiding over the service. Most evangelicals think of Communion as symbolic, so it makes sense that they are not as strict about having the right relationship to it as Catholics and Orthodox Christians who believe it is a sacrament and the true presence of Christ. So, if you are not Catholic, we ask that you not receive communion.
"Go and make disciples of all nations." The Lord has called each of us to the work of evangelization. We want to help you live out this call by equipping your mind and heart for the work of the Lord. We have many different ministries that can help enrich your faith while providing a community that will support you in a life in service to Christ.
Whether you are becoming a longtime parishioner, you are here serving at Barksdale Air Force Base, or are attending one of our colleges or medical schools, we want you to feel connected and welcomed. Please fill out our online registration form to help us in welcoming you to our Church Community.
