Welcome to St. Joseph's home on the Internet. Located six miles south of Ypsilanti, hidden between pine trees and corn fields, Saint Joseph Catholic Church serves the growing community of greater Ypsilanti. Here you will find generous hospitality and living faith. We are a small parish with a unique pastoral situation (daily Mass isn't offered because our pastor splits time with Sacred Heart Major Seminary), but we are "full-service parish" where you can grow in faith and take part in Christ's mission in the Church. We boast an active youth group, weekly Children's religious education (and Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for the youngest ones), periods of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, an active Council of Catholic Women, Knights of Columbus, Bible Study, FORMED groups, and more. Above all, here you will find God's Word proclaimed in Holy Scripture and His Body and Blood offered and adored in the Most Holy Eucharist. Come and share in God's good work at Saint Joseph parish.

The Disciple Maker Index Survey

The Disciple Maker Index Survey Opens this Week! Please Read and Help!

It’s official! The Disciple Maker Index Survey opens this week and we need your help!
Please help us participate by completing a 10-15 minute survey as soon as possible.

Go to http://www.disciplemakerindex.com

There are also opportunities to complete the survey after Sunday Mass and you can obtain a paper copy in the Maria Hall/Parish Office or by contacting Anna Nowaczewski at 734-461-6555.

The survey will only be available from February 8th to March 1st and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.

We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to Fr Pieter Vanrooyen and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.

Thank you for helping with this important project!
