Our Lady of Guadalupe

Our Lady of Guadalupe

As our parish celebrated Our Lady of Guadalupe this past Sunday, December 10, 2017, this feast pairs nicely with the spirit and season of Advent. The feast of our Lady represents Jesus’ saving power and forgiveness, symbolized through His mother’s love for us. Western countries, more than ever, continue to need Our Lady’s prayers and protection. From violence to poverty to oppression, countries throughout our hemisphere need our prayers and our action! Mary showed us, through St. Juan Diego, that we are all one in Christ. He acted as a mediator for the rest of the Western world and brought many to conversion. I pray today that this conversion continues, in each of our hearts. By seeing each other as brothers and sisters, may we all come together as one for the good and care of all. Have a blessed day!

Happy Aniversary

Happy Aniversary

Happy Anniversary to the Priesthood!  14 years ago today, Fr. Iván Ramirez received the sacrament of Holy Orders. As Mary said “yes” to God’s message from Gabriel, Fr. Iván has said “yes” to God by serving others. May we be inspired by his dedication and passion!

  News Brief

St. Joseph Church will be hosting the annual Mass of Remembrance on All Souls Day,
Friday, November 2, 2018 at 7 pm.

All of our beloved dead, especial those who have died this past year, will be remembered at this Mass. These names will be read during the prayers of the faithful and a representative for that person will bring up a candle during the presentation of the gifts.


This year, we will also offer additional remembrance by placing luminaries along the walkway to the church.  This is an inspirational display in their honor.  If you would like to have the name of your loved one written on the luminary bag, see someone at the entrance of the church after all the Masses.  A free will donation is appreciated for the luminaries.
