Code of Conduct

To share in the ministry of Christ is a great privilege as well as a tremendous responsibility. The privilege is the joy of sharing in the mission of Jesus Himself. The responsibility is acting in a way that conforms to the attitude and actions of Christ. As is evident in the Gospels, Jesus had a deep, abiding respect for each human being and never did anything that harmed or misled people in their personal or spiritual life.

The public needs to know that the Church is committed to protecting the children/youth who are entrusted to its care and to ensuring that those offering services are in right relationship with the children/youth receiving services.
There is a challenge in the Scriptures to "live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace." (Ephesians 4:1-3)

Message from Fr. Rick
Saint Joseph Cemetery
        Saint Joseph Cemetery would like to thank everyone for choosing us as your families resting place. The employees and Board of Directors of Saint Joseph Cemetery work hard trying to keep up with the maintenance along with any and all other issues that arise from time to time. With the cost of upkeep and maintenance needed our main goal is to keep Saint Joseph Cemetery financially solvent and to maintain the beautiful cemetery we strive to provide to all our families. As some of our local cemeteries are having financial issues our main goal is to not have to worry about jeopardizing our perpetual care account for years to come. With a little help from our parishioners, we can all make this happen. In your May envelope packet you will find a Special Envelope with Saint Joseph Cemetery's name on it. We are hopeful that our Parishioners will consider making a donation to the cemetery to help us secure our financial goals for future years.

Hi everyone!

The bus will leave Warren at 3 pm and we will go to dinner in Erie and then attend the ordination Mass. We should be home at approximately 11 pm. If you are interested in riding the bus, please contact me in the parish office. The cost is $45 and includes your bus seat and dinner. Also, we are taking a collection for a Marian chasuble for Deacon Ian.
