How to Join St. Joseph Catholic Church, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

Ready to join a welcoming Catholic parish? St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Wauwatosa and our 1,100+ families are ready for you!

We encourage all people who regularly worship with us to register as parish members.

Registration forms are available in the Welcome Center in the rear of church (Center Street), in the parish office adjacent to the church, or can be downloaded from documents and forms page of this web site.

The Welcome Center is staffed by members of the Stewardship Committee after each Mass the second Sunday of each month.

The parish office is open 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, except June 1-August 29 when the office closes at noon on Fridays. (The office is closed on Holy Days of Obligation.)

If you need assistance, ask any usher at Mass or see Fr. Dennis, Fr. Steve or Deacon Jose after Mass.

Information needed for the registration form includes names of family members, contact information, sacramental information (date and place of Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage, etc.), occupation, education and marital status. You also will be asked about talents you might be willing to share with the parish.

If you are not Christian or Roman Catholic, we invite you to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) or the rite for children. The Catholic Formation office is happy to answer any questions about the RCIA program for Christians from Protestant or Evangelical backgrounds, or for people baptized in the Catholic Church but who never received Reconciliation, First Eucharist or Confirmation. Contact the office at at 414-771-4626 to learn more.
