St. Joseph Catholic Church strives to be a living and growing community of prayer, support and service formed by the Gospel. In our lives we try to live out these Gospel values in our Catholic heritage and pass them on to the upcoming generations. In the spirit of Jesus we try to reach out to those among us who are in need of our support and care within our parish and beyond.

Special Announcements

We are excited to announce we have a new Pastoral Associate!   Sr. Amy Diesen, OSF, has joined our parish family.  See her message below:

Peace and All Good to you.  I am Sr. Amy Diesen, OSF and happy to be a part of the St. Joseph’s Parish Pastoral Team!  I look forward to joining you soon.  In the meantime, here are some fun facts about me: I am a Germantown, IL native, I went to high school at Breese-Central.  I served in the Army for some time and was deployed twice to Kuwait.  I served for two years at Scott AFB with TRANSCOM.  I have been with my religious community, the Franciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, for 10 years and I professed final vows just this past August.

I love being a Franciscan Sister.  The theme for my vows celebration was “happy in the Lord” and I try to live each day remembering to be happy in the Lord.  I hope that we can all grow in our love and service to God with each other every day, encouraging and growing in faith as one great community. 

See you soon! Sr. Amy
