Be a part of the Saint Joseph Parish Family 2015 Pictorial Directory

 Do you know the names of the people sitting around you?photo session

 It was in 2008 that our last Parish Family Pictorial Directory was completed and a lot has changed since then! 

 Help us to build a tool that will put names to faces. Be a part of the Saint Joseph Parish Family 2015 Pictorial  Directory! We need you to make our Family Album complete!

 Some changes that have taken place over the last few years -- our beloved Father Glenn O'Connor was assigned to St.  Susana in July of 2012 and our new pastor is Father Robert Hausladen. Though it was difficult for many, if not most - to  adjust to this change, we have come to know and love Father Rob very much! He comes to us with many and varied talents, most obvious his gift of preaching. His homilies are very deep, thought provoking and in a word "awesome"!

We've also had several staff changes. Judy Meyers has accepted the responsibility of Religious Education following the retirement of Trudy Davis. Patty Arthur now manages the Parish Office and is Father Rob's Administrative Assistant since the retirement of Rita Basch. Karen Ferris our bookkeeper came on-board when Kari Clendenen had to resign due to medical concerns.

We have a lot of new faces at St. Joseph's with many new registered parishioners. In addition we've added several new ministries and have seen a change in ministry leadership; all of which deserves to be memorialized in our NEW Saint Joseph Parish Family Pictorial Directory.  

We have PHOTO SESSIONS BEGINNING IN AUGUST starting on Tues.—Fri., Aug. 18—21 from 2:30—9 p.m. and on Sat., Aug 22 from 10 a.m.—4:30 p.m. We also have additional dates in September for anyone who may be on vacation or unable to attend a photo session in August. These additional dates are: Tues.—Wed., Sept. 22—23 from 2:30—9 p.m.

This is a great opportunity to get a family portrait and parishioners are encouraged to invite extended family and friends.
