Nearly 160 years after Holy Cross Father Edward Sorin founded Saint Joseph Parish, ours is a thriving community where the Gospel of Christ is proclaimed, neighbors are served in love, and children are educated in the faith of the Apostles. This is thanks to the blessing of God and to the generations of Saint Joseph faithful who have called this parish their spiritual home. Our forebears entrusted to us a magnificent heritage – one only made possible by their fidelity and sacrifice. Now it is up to us to build upon that heritage for the people of today and for those who will come tomorrow. To do so will require that all members of our church and school community join together in taking this vital next step – one that will support and advance Saint Joseph’s mission of worship, service, and education in the heart of South Bend for years to come!

Loving God, we thank you for
blessing us with our parish family,
and for the gift of living our faith
with one another.

May your eternal light shine on
those who have gone before us –
those who handed on to us
the faith of the Apostles and the
community that we now embrace.

In humility and love,
we ask you to bless our mission of
worship, service, and education.

Help us to continue, in faith,
the good work that you have begun.
With trust in Divine Providence,
we place our hopes and dreams
in your hands.

Unite us in a spirit of charity and
service, as together, with your help,
we seek to build a future
according to your will.
Through Christ Our Lord.

Saint Joseph, pray for us!
