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.

Children’s Center

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
