A parish is a community of believers, a spiritual family that grows together in their relationship with the Lord. Together we discover and live out our true identity and mission as followers of Jesus Christ, seeking an ever deepening unity with Him as His mystical body in the world today. Therefore, we take seriously our Baptismal call to seek out opportunities to act as His hands, His feet and His voice in our world today. It is our hope this website will aid us in that growth well into the future, as we reach our members, visitors, or those looking for a new parish home.
In addition to basic information about our faith, the church and ministries of our parish and school, this website will provide a vehicle for us to stay connected with one another. For example, feel free to stop by and check out our parish Facebook page, “Like us” and leave a comment.
Again, we're glad you stopped by our website today and urge you to join us in doing all we can to live the faith this day. To deepen our relationship with the Lord and each other and to allow the Lord, through us, to touch the lives of those we meet along our way this day. Have a wonderful day and may you know the Lord's blessings in abundance.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Michael Williams

St. Joseph Parish
will be participating in a parish-wide survey!
Please read
St. Joseph Parish will be participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute!  We need your help.
Please help us by participating in a 10 - 15 minute survey online.  The survey can be accessed at www.disciplemakerindex.com from February 8, 2020 to March 1, 2020 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on your parish's efforts to help you grow.  All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as a whole.
We are trying to get the highest response rate possible.  This information will be invaluable to Fr. Michael Williams and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be.  We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.
If you don't use a computer - there will be opportunities to complete the survey, contact the parish secretary, Deb Light at 989-224-8994 to obtain a paper copy.
Thank you for helping with this important project!
