Mission statement

We pledge ourselves to an ever-deepening love, faith, and hope in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, under the patronage of Mary Immaculate.

As servants of Jesus Christ, drawing on the diversity of gifts given by the Holy Spirit to the entire people of God, we call ourselves to be a community characterized by outreach and hospitality.

We call ourselves to a ministry of word and sacrament, a ministry of education and catechesis, a ministry of evangelization and ecumenism. We recognize our call to respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ, through action on behalf of the poor, the alienated, and all in need.

Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and recognizing our heritage in faith and history, we, the members of Immaculate Conception Church, therefore pledge ourselves to continue to grow as a faith community as we reach out to others.

The mission of St. Joseph School is to teach and nurture the Catholic faith and a love of learning. Our calling is to encourage each student to express the Gospel message in word and action, to be a lifelong learner, and to be a responsible member of both the Catholic community and society as a whole.

The faculty, staff, and community are committed to promoting mutual respect for each individual in our unique and diverse population. Together we work to develop the spiritual, academic, social, emotional, and physical potential of each student.
