Parish News and Events
Hi my name is Tristin Lammert. I’m from Grafton and I met my fiancé three years ago. I was baptized Catholic and now is the perfect time to continue on with my faith. I have been blessed with many influential people. I am excited to continue this journey with my future family. On my spare time I like to take walks through woods and enjoy nature with my fiancé.
Hello, my name is Ian Schmidt and I am thankful to be a part of this year’s RCIA class at St. Joseph. I was born, baptized, and raised into the UCC faith. I am originally from Valders, WI (Manitowoc County); and that is where my wife, Theresa, and I met during high school. In getting to know her, I became more closely aligned with her Catholic faith. We were married in 2019 at St. Gregory Parish in St. Nazianz, WI. I hope to officially join the Catholic faith, in order to provide a consistent foundation of faith for my family. Thank you for your support!
My family and I have been attending St. Joseph for about four and a half years since moving to Grafton. Our youngest child was baptized here, and we are beyond blessed to be able to all commune together come April 11th. I come from a WELS Lutheran background, and am thankful for the opportunity to join my husband in unity with the Catholic Faith. Currently my son (second grade) is going through his sacramental preparation for the Holy Eucharist, and it was only right to join him. We are excited to officially make St. Joseph our home, and I am thrilled to be able to join the congregation through Holy Communion. My husband and I, along with our three children, thank you for your continued prayers as we walk this journey to God.

You Never Know… when you will need to help save a life. As an update for some, and news for others, the parish has 2 Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs). They are used to evaluate heart rhythms and deliver a potentially lifesaving shock if necessary. Anyone can use them!
1. Located at the top of the stairs leading to the lower church hall. You’ll see a 3 dimensional sign facing the worship space. Look for it today, so you’ll know where it is during an emergency.
2. Located on the lower level across from the gym doors. During an emergency, if someone says, “get the AED,” please do not hesitate. Take it out of the cabinet on the wall and bring to the site, and call 911.
The parish also stocks 3 first aid kits:
1. Usher’s Room
2. Kitchenette off Gathering Hall
3. Parish Office Workroom
– even if you just need a Band-Aid 🙂
The Prayer Shawl Ministry invites you to help yourself to a prayer shawl for:
• A sick co-worker.
• A friend going through a divorce.
• A youth who is struggling.
• A mom whose child is in the hospital.
• An aunt in a nursing home.
• Anyone who can use a reminder of God’s loving embrace!
Each prayer shawl is blessed by the Prayer Shawl group. You will find them in the Gathering Hall coatroom. The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets monthly at 7:00 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Our next gathering will be September 19th. All are welcome.
