Please share our mass with your family and friends and be safe.

transp koc logoThe Knights of Columbus (KOC) of St. Joseph (#9456) have introduced a new program called "The Holy Family"

We are inviting parishioners of any household to consecrate themselves to the Holy Family. Each week the parishioner will take the sanctuary of the Holy Family into their homes for one week of daily prayer. At the end of your week, you will bring back the sanctuary to the church for the next family.

Holy Family Testimonial:

"I have had the opportunity to take the Holy Family into my home three times. I can't even begin to express the extra peace and love that is felt with the Holy Family displayed in my family room. The prayers that are given with it are beautiful. This past Thanksgiving, I had it, and as we prayed before our meal, I included the dedication of my family to the protection of the Holy Family as part of our grace. I feel that if others could sense the love coming from the Holy Family display, people would be lining up to take it into their homes."
-- Karen DeCarlo 

"Having the Holy Family in your home is a great way to reflect on the love of family and pray for everyone in your lives in a concentrated effort. It is a beautiful way to start your day and/or a peaceful way to end the day. The time you take for prayer and reflection is a precious gift from the Holy Family. I encourage everyone to take the opportunity to invite the Holy Family into their home and into their lives. You will want to do it on a regular basis because of the peace it brings into your life and home."
-- Terrie Tafoya

ukraineDear Parishioners,

As a Community of St. Joseph, we are devastated by the recent events in Ukraine. Let us join the world in prayer. We turn to God for guidance and direction, and prayer that you look over the people of Ukraine. Give them strength and courage during this difficult time. We pray to you, oh God, for peace and a resolution to this conflict.

We pray for all the people of the Ukraine and we ask Our Blessed Mother and St. Joseph and St. Michael for Intercessions!

From the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet

O Prince of Peace,
We pray for the people of Ukraine this day.
May conflict cease and peace be restored.
May those in power soon find ways of peace.
God of peacemakers
Teach us the ways of peace.
Come and show us
how to beat our swords into plowshares,
tools of life instead of instruments of fear.
Strip us of all strategies of conquest,
Make our hearts alive
to your movement toward peace
with our dear neighbor.
We pray for the people of Ukraine this day.

Dear Parishioners,

The Capuchin Poor Clare Nuns have given that quiet contemplative witness in Pueblo for the past 21 years. Bishop Arthur Tafoya brought the Sisters to Pueblo to be that light and powerhouse of prayer. They presently live in their Monastery off Clark Street across the street from Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel Church.

St. Joseph Parish has donated 1.75 acre to the sisters to build a new Monastery for them that will house 12 Sisters. We are asking for donors to help with the building of this new Monastery to fulfill their dream. The enclosed flyer shows the old Monastery and the plans for the new Monastery. I am asking for your generous support for our Capuchin Poor Clare Nuns Monastery Fund.

Please see the flyer below. May God Bless you for your generous donation.

Your brother in Christ

Father Joseph 

We are asking for donations to help the Poor Clare Sisters fulfill their dream.

St. Joseph is donating the land behind the south baseball field at the corner of Rios.

Donations can be made out to:
Diocese of Pueblo

Poor Clare Nuns Monastery Fund
Checks to be mailed to St. Joseph Church
1145 South Aspen Road
Pueblo, CO 81006

God's Peace and let's help fulfill the Poor Clare Sisters dream.
