Our Parish Receives


To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.

Parish Needs


Priests’ Residence Doors and Windows

The original doors and windows will be replaced with new retrofit, energy-efficient models.



The four restrooms for the church and school will be completely remodeled, including new toilets, sinks and paint.


Parish Hall/Gym

The parish hall serves as both our parish hall and the school gym. For some time, our dream has been to remodel this much-used space. We will upgrade and renovate the parish hall, such as with a new ceiling, restrooms, and air conditioning.


Future Maintenance Fund

A rainy-day fund will ensure we are able to meet future maintenance needs, such as repaving the parking lot and replacing building roofs.


Movement for a Better World

A portion of our funds will support Movement for a Better World, a program which provides food, clothing and care for those in need and the most vulnerable in our community.

Adult Faith Formation

One of our goals here at St. Joseph is to provide lifelong learning opportunities for everyone. We will invest in adult faith formation through this fund, which will provide ongoing support for adults and youth who wish to continue exploring their relationship with Christ.


New Church Seating

The church pews are showing their age. Many are starting to crack, and some kneelers are broken. The cost to repair them is about the same as purchasing new. Replacing all of the pews and chairs in the church will make for a more comfortable worship experience.

A Bold Plan of Renewal

We — the Catholic faithful — are the agents of renewal for Church and society. I am grateful for this opportunity to walk alongside clergy and parishioners in strengthening our parishes and ministries, the heart of our Archdiocese.
Archbishop José H. Gomez
