Welcome to our parish website! I am so very happy that you are visiting our online home! We are a Bible believing community of faith! Our family strives to be a welcoming, embracing and loving community of believers announcing the Good News of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with a passion!
Our church family is very diverse reminding us that in the kingdom of God there is no division but all are one as brothers and sisters with one Father of all. We come together for the central celebration of our faith, the Holy Eucharist, to feast on the Word of God in the first part of our celebration and in the second part we feast on the body and blood of Jesus as we share Jesus’ body and blood which He left us as memorial of His passion, death and resurrection.
If you are looking for a church to call your home, please know that you are welcome at St. Joseph’s. If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am here to serve you!
Life is beautiful when it is lived with faith. So, fear not, just believe, for the Lord is with us!
With an assurance of my prayers for you and your loved ones, I am your servant and brother in the Lord Jesus,
Father Adam Kotas
I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord”. The Lord does not disappoint those who take this risk; whenever we take a step towards Jesus, we come to realize that he is already there, waiting for us with open arms. Now is the time to say to Jesus:
“Lord, I have let myself be deceived; in a thousand ways I have shunned your love, yet here I am once more, to renew my covenant with you. I need you. Save me once again, Lord, take me once more into your redeeming embrace”. __Pope Francis (Evangelii Gaudium §3)

THE “BLACK MADONNA” TO VISIT ST. JOSEPH CHURCH
Thursday July 24th
6PM Holy Hour
The icon of “Our Lady of Czestochowa” (“the Black Madonna”) is reputed to have been “written” on Mary’s table top from her house in Nazareth by Luke the Evangelist. She has been credited with numerous miracles and healings – both of a spiritual and physical nature. A beautiful copy of this icon has been blessed and consecrated at the monastery of Jasna Gora in Poland, where the original is kept, and entrusted to the defense of life and family. Now, after traveling 40,000 miles from Vladivostok in Russia through 24 countries in Europe, she will be visiting St.Joseph Church, Crescent City, on her global pilgrimage. Please join us as we welcome her to Crescent City to ask for her protection of life and family as well as personal petitions. We sill start with Holy Hour at 6PM with Mass at 7PM. Feel free to bring any items, rosaries, statues, pictures you would like to touch to the image.
