The parish is committed to following the teachings and ministry of Jesus Christ, as revealed through the Roman Catholic Church and expressed by the Bishop of the Diocese of Harrisburg.

The people of St. Joseph Church, desire to proclaim the Good News of Salvation and to serve our neighbors, by building and sharing a community of faith and love for the greater glory of God, our Father, and Jesus Christ, His Son, in union with the Holy Spirit.

Butterfly Garden at St Joseph

Everyone is invited to stroll to the rear grassy area of the church parking lot and view the growing beauty of the parish/school Butterfly Garden. Recently planted and nurtured with the assistance of the Hanover VNA and MonarchWatch, this habitat will be a work in progress.  Part-time assistance will be needed to weed and water the garden, to re-mulch and re-plant (annuals).  Contact Deacon Tom at the office if you'd like to participate.
