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!

Fortnight for Freedom ~ June 21 to July 4

fortnightWitnesses to Freedom  On his visit to the U.S., Pope Francis encouraged us to nurture, promote, and defend the precious gift of religious freedom.  To this end, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has continued to encourage Catholics, other Christians, and all people of good will to set aside two weeks to reflect on religious freedom.           

The theme for this year’s Fortnight is “Witnesses to Freedom.” The Conference is lifting up for reflection the stories of 14 women and men-one for each day-who bear witness to freedom in Christ, such as Oscar Romero, the Little  Sisters of the Poor, the Martyrs of Compiègne, and the Coptic Christians who were killed by ISIS last year.
