We welcome you to Sacred Heart - St. Joseph Catholic Parish.

We are a Christ centered community of faith which gathers to worship around the real presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist and the sacramental life of the Church. Through the love of Christ's Sacred Heart and the intercession of St. Joseph, we hope to journey from this life into the everlasting life to come. Come and journey with us!
Fr. Tim Haberkorn

We now offer Mass at Sacred Heart - St. Joseph Church. To assist in determining if you should attend, please read Fr. Tim’s important letter (UPDATED 5.13.20) with our parish plan, guidelines, and procedures for resuming public Mass. Virtual Mass is available on Facebook.

Please join Fr. Tim in this virtual The Ascension of the Lord Mass 5.24.20
You can follow along with these Readings.  
During Communion, please make a Spiritual Communion with our Lord using this prayer.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Due to the current situation, it is very critical and necessary that all parishioners please continue to make your weekly contributions for the support of our parish. Please visit Faith.Direct/KS196 for electronic offertory or mail your weekly envelopes to the parish.
