St. Joseph Parish Vision Statement
We are called as a community of believers to deepen our relationship with Christ. This relationship is fostered through our prayer life, and in our devotion to God’s presence in the sacraments. In serving our Parish community, we seek to give of ourselves, in our presence at Mass, in the sharing of the special gifts we have been given, and through our offerings for our church. We also seek to live out our faith, through our words, through our good actions, and through the graces we receive, as we become the people God has meant us to be, drawing closer to God and those he has put in our lives.
FOR OUR GOVERNMENT
God of power and might, wisdom and justice, through You authority is rightly administered, laws are enacted, and judgment is decreed. Assist with Your spirit of counsel and fortitude the President and other government leaders of these United States. May they always seek the ways of righteousness, justice, and mercy. Grant that they may be enabled by Your powerful protection to lead our Country with honesty and integrity. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
