From the Parish Priest's Corner

Whether you are a regular attendee of our Church or you are planning to worship with us, I welcome you all to St. Joseph Catholic Churchh, the Agape Community, under the pastoral care of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). I want to make sure you know how much we appreciate you joining our worship.

St. Joseph Catholic Church is a home for all. We help furnish a convenient environment for religious experiences. Through the incredible availability of our priests and several visiting Jesuits, we create a center of variety and beauty in worship and liturgy.

As a parish under the care of the Jesuits, the parish life is inspired by Ignatian Spirituality – a spirituality of the heart and Contemplation in Action.

I thank all our parishioners who continue to display unwavering faith as we navigate through the uncharted waters of a Covid - 19. Your holy service to the Lord through our parish touches so many hearts and motivates so many lives.

As an AGAPE Commuity, we try to live as and help our neighors as ourselves.

Parish Development

We try to keep alive a maintenance culture so as to fashion a conducive environment for prayers and meetings of parishioners and visitors to the parish. The parish frequently maintains our different structures and sacred vestments, linens and utensils (used for liturgical functions).

Joseph House

The Parish has a halfway house called Joseph House. This is a place where stranded persons spend a night or two and make adequate plans to move on. The house offers accommodation and meals at no cost. Presently there are three challenged persons who are permanently housed although the house does not receive permanent residents. Many released prisoners have spent few days in the house before proceeding to their homes.

Care for Widows in the Parish

The Parish has a coordinated assistance to the widows depending on support that comes in. Most of our widows are abandoned without any inheritance and with children to care for. They meet every First Wednesday of the Month for a mass of thanksgiving, prayers and meeting. The old and weak ones need support for feeding and clothing. The younger ones need empowerment to do small scale businesses. Periodically, the Parish begs for food to support them. Most of them having Children in school also require help with the payment of fees. Usually, there is a long queue of Widows and their children at the beginning of a new academic year (September in Nigeria) seeking for help to pay their children’s fees.
