Mission Statement                                          

The St. Joseph Stewardship Committee will seek to cultivate an ethic of stewardship across the entire parish as a way to enhance prayer, service, and sharing and a feeling of ownership of St. Joseph Parish,

We believe stewardship is a part of discipleship...the call to follow Jesus and imitate his way of life.  A Christian steward is one who understands that all is gift, receives God's gifts gratefully, and shares God's gifts in justice and love with others.  We also believe that a Christian steward returns God's gifts with increase to the Lord.

Stewardship Committee Members

  • Lisa Schaetz (Chairperson)
  • Joann Mueller
  • Kristie Kalies
  • Lisa VanDyke

Activity Helpers: Cindy Ebert, Barb Oswald, Mike Meissner, Pam Meissner, Lacie Schuh, Tim Stedl, Jeff VanDyke

If you are interested in becoming part of the Stewardship Committee at St. Joseph, or wish to share a suggestion for stewardship within the parish, contact chairperson, Joanne Mueller or the parish office.

The Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary

Hail, Mary! Full of grace, The Lord is with thee, Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
