A Welcoming Faith Community Serving Warren County and the Lake Gaston Area

Let's Build Our New Church...

Church Dedication and Community Open House

A wonderful day has come at last! The new St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church construction is complete and the dedication and consecration will be held Saturday, February 17, 2018. Parishioners, community and clergy leaders and guests will join St. Joseph’s Pastor, Father John Gillespie and the Bishop of the Raleigh Diocese, Bishop Luis Raphael Zarama at the noon service. For all interested in seeing the new church, a Community Open House will be held on the following Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. The public is invited to visit and see this wonderful addition to our community, meet parishioners and enjoy light refreshments.

Our Journey

As a welcoming faith community we are on a journey to provide an expanded place for worship and prayer so we may nurture the growth of our community in both size and service. For the Power Point presentation of our journey CLICK HERE.
