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. Sign up to receive our E-Newsletter today!!

We are a small parish with a unique pastoral situation 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 including 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, 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.
