We who choose St. Joseph's Parish are called as part of the Body of Christ in the Archdiocese of Ottawa to be:
A Proclaiming Community
which is a living witness to Christ in the inner city and in partnership with the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, proclaims the Good News to the Poor.
A Welcoming Community
which is gathered in weakness and strength by the Spirit of Jesus to nurture its faith by sharing the Word and breaking the bread, remembering and celebrating God's love for us.
A Discerning Community
which, inspired and led by the Holy Spirit on a journey of faith, encourages the gifts of indivduals to flourish.
A Ministering Community
which serves the needs of its people and reaches out in solidarity especially to those who are poor and marginalized in the community at large.
About Saint Joseph Parish
