July: Dedicated to the Precious Blood of Jesus

ST. JOSEPH and HOLY TRINITY CATHOLIC PARISHES are a welcoming Catholic community, alive in Christ, living out His message in love and service to everyone.


Online Giving 

Your generosity to our Parishes helps the Church dispense the Sacraments to the faithful, provides Catholic education and formation to our youth, extends pastoral care to the ill and dying, helps those most in need locally, nationally, and internationally, and brings CHRIST to all.





                                                                                                Brothers and Sisters; You are surrounded!  Evidence supports our Christian Faith. Yes, we are surrounded by evidence that helps us believe. On the contrary, many people are aware that we are free to disbelieve. We love to distrust authority. God has done us one better by truly giving us the freedom to disbelieve. Evidence or not, we do what we feel like. We are guilty of acting out of feelings, and not logic. This ends up being a good thing for us. Nearly all of us would perish in a world where emotions were not expressed. As humans, we find ourselves being quite easily persuaded to do what we want to do. If someone came and started telling us that we should not love someone; and they did it by listing all the ways that person was not perfect, our final answer would be similar to this: I don’t care about all that stuff on your list! I love that person. When George Bailey (It’s a Wonderful Life) found Zuzu’s petals in his pocket, that was evidence enough for him for what he wanted. What is the one thing that makes you say, “I can’t explain it all, but… I LOVE JESUS !”                                                                                                   Fr. David Tate                                                                                  Parish Administrator
