NEW! Lenten Reflection Groups

This Lent, as our local Church prepares to implement Partners in the Gospel, we reflect on the Word of God and pray that our hearts may be open to encounter Jesus in all the ways he comes to us: in word, in sacrament, and in all his people. We will be offering a 5-week, Small Group Reflection, through the season of Lent here at St. Joseph. We will have three groups in English and one in Spanish, click here to view the full schedule!

NEW! The Story of a Soul

Please join as we gather to discuss St. Therese of Liseux’s autobiography, The Story of a Soul, starting Thursday, January 4, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in Marian Hall. In an increasingly noisy, divisive, and complex world, we will take a closer look at this beloved saint’s message of love, simplicity, and grace.  She is truly a spiritual treasure of the church.  As Pope Francis conveyed, Her famous ‘Little Way’, “is a spirituality that teaches love, self-giving, concern for others, and complete trust in the mercy of God.”

NEW! Jesus: A Pilgrimage

A new book discussion group will begin on January 14, 2024. The group will gather on Sundays, 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the St. John Paull II Library to discuss Jesus: A Pilgrimage by Fr. James Martin, SJ.

NEW! Jesus, The Way, The Truth, and The Life

Our Wednesday evening study group will be beginning a new study, “Jesus, The Way, The Truth, and The Life”. This study will begin on January 31st at 6:30 pm. This study is open to all! You can order the workbook by clicking here. For any questions, please contact Kara Bostad at or 360-903-4149.

NEW! Into the Breach

We are starting a new men’s group here at St. Joseph! Through shared experience and small group discussion, men build a brotherhood, strengthening them in their mission as disciples. The first gathering will be on March 2nd at 7:00 am, so mark your calendars!
