Living Prayer

One only has to look at our bulletin to see all the different meetings and activities taking place in our community this week.

There are many spaces where members of our community gather together to build relationships, to serve our community and to encounter Jesus through and with each other.

Let us pray that these ministries will continue to flourish and be a source of life and love for our parish family.

New to St Joseph's?

We’re glad you’re here! All are welcome in our community.

Encounter Jesus

The call to ‘Encounter Jesus’ is both an invitation and a mission.

We are an open, welcoming community that seeks to share the life and love of Jesus with every person we encounter.

As a community, we strive to create those spaces where anyone can freely encounter the person of Jesus.

We are further challenged to encounter Jesus in each other, in the world and in the life of the Church.

Encounter Jesus – Breaking Open the Vision Statement

“They had come to hear Jesus…” – Lk 6.18

Over the coming twelve months, we will continue our conversation around the invitation and mission to ‘Encounter Jesus.’ What does that mean for our community?

A vision statement doesn’t change things overnight. It is the expression of a hope, a goal, something towards which we direct our energy and our activity. The vision statement will guide our pastoral planning and decision making now and into the future. But we take it one step at a time.

As a community, we will unwrap more of the vision statement through our reflections on the Word of God at our Sunday Celebrations, in our ministries and team meetings, and at other community gatherings. Like all communities in our country at this moment, we continue to discern, “What is God asking of us at this time?” And that is an ongoing journey.

This month, let us reflect on the invitation to ‘Encounter Jesus in myself.’ We each have a story of our own unique encounter with Jesus. What is my faith story? Each of these stories is worth sharing and celebrating. And each story continues… we continue to grow in our personal relationship with Jesus that is lived out in our families, our community and the world.
