How to Pray the Rosary

Prayer for Protection in Time of a Pandemic





Please know you are all in the prayers of the priests and deacons here at St. Joseph Parish.  Like your home, our parish expenses continue during this difficult time.  Since some people are not coming to church on a regular basis due to the virus, we have seen a great reduction in giving.  We need your support now more than ever.  You may drop off your contributions at the parish office, under the door is fine.  However, now is a great time to register for “Parish Giving”.  Please see below and register for online giving.  Thank you for your continued support.



St. Joseph Parish has enlisted Parish Giving to provide its members with the opportunity to use Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) as an alternative method for giving. 


Click on Parish Giving logo above to register for the program.


Parish Giving allows participants to donate a recurring contribution that is automatically transferred from your checking or savings account, or even credit card, on a monthly basis, and you select your own billing date. This Program can be utilized for your Sunday contributions, as well as any Holy Day Collection and all diocesan collections.


The use of EFT is not only time saving and convenient for you, but also allows our Parish to realize a more consistent level of support. By signing up for Parish Giving, you will know that you are doing your part to support the Parish even at times you are not able to be physically present to celebrate with the Parish Community.
