Catholic Faith Based Community
The members of St. Joseph’s Parish, a Catholic Faith Community, are committed to reaching out to all of God’s people, making them feel they are truly a part of the Body of Christ. Our worship is centered around the Eucharist. Encountering Christ in the sacraments enriches our unity to bring us closer to God. St. Joseph’s Church has been serving the Tri-Cities area since 1911. Our community is very active, and we are sure to have opportunities for ministry and outreach for virtually anyone who wishes to be a member of our parish. We would love to have you! See the parish ministries page or stop by the office to see how you can become involved today!

St. Joseph Columbarium
St. Joseph Columbarium is located behind the old Church, the St. Joseph Columbarium opened in July 2011 for the inurnment of Catholics and their family members.
As Catholics, we believe that our physical death is another step in the journey we take to everlasting life. Inurnment at the parish creates a prayerful reminder of the reverence our faith instills in life and a place of remembrance for those who have gone before us.
St. Joseph School
For over 50 years, St. Joseph’s Catholic School has been providing a dynamic, traditional education to our children. Our curriculum is rooted in the Gospel standards which allows us to educate the whole child, spirit, mind and body. We have a strong school community with engaged and dedicated families creating lifelong friendships for both you and your child.
St. Joseph’s Catholic School is a dynamic, faith-filled community where each child is challenged to excel and grow in mind, body, and spirit as an image of God in our world.
Our Children’s Center provides a safe and nurturing environment in which the child is able to develop cognitively, socially, physically, and emotionally, through a creative program of planned activities, within a day care setting. We educate children in the values of life, family and positive interpersonal relationships. We encourage children to internalize the values of self-discipline, mutual respect, personal morality, and social justice.
The Children’s Centers hours of operation are from 6 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday. Questions? Please contact our Children’s Center at 509-586-1428
Salvation is a free gift of God. The death of Christ on the cross is the only sufficient payment for our sins. All have sinned, but all can be saved. This salvation is available for any who put their trust in Christ as Savior and follow Him as the only Lord. Romans 3:23, 6:23; John 3:16
