Welcome to Saint Joseph Parish!

St. Joseph parish is located on the west side of Indianapolis, near the "old" airport. The mission of St. Joseph’s Parish is to be a loving Catholic community serving the spiritual needs of our parish family and those of our neighbors as we aspire to grow in spirit and service as modeled by our patron, St. Joseph.  Our most valuable strength is our willingness to volunteer our time, talent and treasure.  Let us remember that stewardship is a way of life and that every person and all our individual gifts are blessings from God!
