Baptized into Jesus Christ, and guided by the Holy Spirit, we are a Catholic community united with the local Bishop and our Catholic brothers and sisters in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston.

We worship the Father, Son and Holy Spirit through personal and communal prayer, through the proclamation and living the Gospel, through the weekly Sunday celebration of the Eucharist and the other Sacraments of the Church, and through our charitable outreach to those within and beyond our parish boundaries.

We, therefore, commit ourselves through mutually sharing our time, talent and treasure to welcome all who gather here, to provide and support Catholic Education through our Catholic Schools and Religious Education programs for all ages, to work together for the spiritual care of one another and the maintenance of the material goods that have been entrusted to us.

St. Joseph the Worker, pray for us.
