Welcome to Fr. Iván Ramirez

Dear Father Ramirez,

We would like to take this moment to formally welcome you to St. Joseph Parish as our Pastor. According to our mission statement, we are known as a welcoming Parish. We hope that you feel our love and welcome as you settle in over the next few months. Our Parish was founded in 1864 - on this site - by the heart-felt desires of Irish and German immigrants. Over the past 153 years the membership of the Parish has grown with increasing diversity. For many years, we have been the home parish of a vibrant community of Spanish-speaking Roman Catholics, the only one serving this community in Bristol. The English and Spanish speakers come together throughout the year and on special occasions to build our bond in the Body of Christ. We look forward to getting to know you, and to appreciate the leadership, spirituality, and guidance that you will bring to us and our Parish. We wish you the warmest welcome to the Parish of St. Joseph.
