Message From Father John...

A Welcoming Faith Community Serving Warren County, Norlina and Lake Gaston

Our church offers qualities you may not find in larger Catholic parishes. We seat about 50 comfortably so our intimate atmosphere creates closeness to God among our parishioners and our community.

Catholic Church near Lake GastonAt St. Joseph the Worker, there is a sense of communal ownership and pride. We have a passion for our faith and make the time to grow our church – and to grow in our faith. Most importantly, we take to heart what our church teaches, that is "the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith".

We are committed to all of our liturgical ministry roles including musician, lector, celebrant and homilist to make the Eucharist the special celebration it is supposed to be. Take a look around our website and see our many activities and opportunities to make the Word of God understood and practical in everyday life. Better yet, come join us at Mass and you will see a vibrant and active faith community.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

~ Fr. John
