Additional Faith Opportunities

Reconciliation: Held the third weekend of each month after each Sunday Mass, and anytime by appointment. During Advent and Lent there are special Reconciliation Services. Call the office or check the bulletin for details on these during the seasons.

Baptisms: All couples are required to attend a preparation program before the child's baptism can be scheduled. Classes are offered three (3) times each year on the third Sunday of January, May and September, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the conference room adjacent to the parish office. Please call or e-mail the parish office early in your pregnancy to register for the class before your child is born.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) Are you interested in learning more about the Catholic Church? Unbaptized and have a need for spirituality in your life? Married to a Catholic and attend Mass with them, and want to share in their faith? RCIA is the place for you! Every year adults are welcomed into the Catholic community through RCIA. Contact the parish office for more information. The Catechumens and candidates from St. Joseph's will be brought into the fullness of the Catholic Church during the Easter Vigil when they receive their Sacraments of Initiation. This is a joyous event as we see the wonderful growth of the Catholic Church, and St. Joseph Parish.
