Faith Formation

St. Joseph's invites you to delve deeper into the mysteries of God, to find purpose and meaning in our lives, and to become more fully the people God has created us to be. As we embark on this journey together, let us remember that faith formation is not a destination but a continuous process—one that unites us in our shared love for Christ and our commitment to living out His teachings in the world.

Youth Ministry

Empowering our young members to become active and engaged participants in the life of the Church. It is a journey of faith, friendship, and self-discovery, guiding our youth toward a deeper relationship with God and a stronger commitment to living out the Gospel values.  They are the future of our Church and we are blessed to witness their growth and transformation in Christ.
