Welcome to St. Joseph’s

Welcome to St. Joseph Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic parish in Mishawaka.  The wonderful and kind people who have called this parish home for their whole lives make it truly a generational parish — with old and young alike.  As a parish family, we strive to grow in holiness through receiving from the Lord Jesus in the Sacraments and thus, fed by Him, sharing what we have received with all.  The Sacred Liturgy especially offers us a glimpse of heaven, which fills us with genuine hope to receive what the Lord has promised to His children!  For the most up to date information, please click ‘view bulletins’ on this page.
