Pastor, St. Joseph Catholic Church

Our Mission



We, the people of God in the parish of St. Joseph, are constantly attempting to become a faith community of those who, believing in Jesus, proclaim God's kingdom and share the mystery of faith by: worshipping the Father; enabling all members to grow in their relationship with each other through the Son; and witnessing our gifts through service to others in the Holy Spirit.

Vacation Bible School has always been a beloved summer program offered to our parishioners and their guests.  While at VBS, children encounter stories from the Bible, meet new children, have a good time with friends, and experience new and fun activities.  They learn Bible verses, act out Bible stories, sing fun educational songs, watch and participate in skits, create crafts, participate in recreation, take part in hands-on mission projects, discover science activities, and have a snack or a meal. 

With the limitations of COVID-19, we are exploring options to continue this tradition in a safe manner.  We are looking for families interested in spearheading this effort and/or volunteering.  Options may include a “at home version” for summer of 2021 and/or preparation for a traditional VBS experience for summer of 2022.  


If this is a ministry that interests you, please contact Adrienne Carroll at adrienne@stjosephcolumbia.org
