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!

For a fourth year, the U.S. bishops are once again calling for a Fortnight for Freedom from June 21-July 4, 2015 which is a time of prayer and action to address many current challenges to religious liberty. This year's theme is Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Bear Witness - to the truth of the gospel.
"Keeping the spirit of the Gospel means that Catholic institutions are to bear witness in love to the full truth about the human person by providing social, charitable, and educational services in a manner that fully reflects the God-given dignity of the human person." - Archbishop William E. Lori, Chairman, Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, on the "Freedom to Bear Witness".
