Welcome to
St. Joseph Catholic Community

Please join us for the Wednesday Night Film Series!

The words are familiar: The Last Supper. Communion. The Great Feast. Bread and Wine. The Holy Eucharist.  Jesus said, “This is my Body” and, “This is my Blood.” Some say they’re merely symbols of remembrance. Others say they’re really the Body and Blood of Christ, but can’t explain how that’s possible. The Eucharist is the center-point of the Mass, and the Catechism calls it the “source and summit of the Christian life” (Para. 1324) – but why?  The answers are here. In a ten part video series, renowned teacher Dr. Brant Pitre guides us through Scripture, history, and Church teaching to illuminate the wonder and miracle of the Eucharist. Episodes will be shown from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. in the church building.You are invited to join the PREP students for the Liturgy of the Word at 6:30 p.m. although this is not required.  Please be respectful of the Liturgy in progress when you enter the church building.
