We are all pilgrim people on different legs of the journey home. At St. Joseph, we pray for all to encounter Christ, be transformed by Christ, and accept Christ's commission to spread the Gospel.

If you've been away from the church for a long time or short time, you're still welcome at God's home. If you are coming from another faith tradition or no tradition at all, we welcome you home to the Christian Church founded by Jesus and expanded by his apostles to all people.

If you've moved into the neighborhood and are looking for a vibrant parish for your faith life, we welcome you to our Christian family.

We're happy to answer questions about our parish, about the Mass, about Catholicism and the Catholic Church today, and about how we as a parish of St. Joseph in Wauwatosa can serve you. Read More.

Be Aware of Email Scam

Recently, some parishioners have received fraudulent e-mails that look like they came from Fr. Dennis requesting gift cards. Those e-mail messages are a scam known as "phishing."

Phishing is when you get e-mails, texts, or calls that seem to be from companies or people you know.  But they’re actually from scammers.  They want you to click on a link or give personal information (like a password) so they can steal your money or identity, and maybe get access to your computer. Phishing e-mails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. 

Read what to watch for to avoid getting scammed.
