About Us

Dear Parishioners and Visitors,

frwardThank you for visiting St. Joseph Parish website. We hope that you may learn more about our church and our faith. This website will provide some interesting information about our church’s past, present, and future. It contains the pertinent details, times and contact names for all our parish programs and special events as well as holy days and secular holidays.

My name is Father Ward Stakem, OFM, Cap. I am the Pastor of St. Joseph Parish and a member of the Capuchin-Franciscan Order. Serving with me are two other Capuchin Friars: Father Mark Pattock and Brother Joseph Day.

Feel free to explore our website. We have made every attempt to make it user friendly as well as complete as possible in religious matters of the Church. Our website also has many useful links to other areas of religion. We hope you will find these helpful. To learn more about our parish community, read Our History and our Parish Mission.

Feel free to call or email our staff when you have a need. We are here to serve you.


Thank you and God bless you,

Father Ward Stakem, OFM, Cap
