Newe Parish App

New Parish App Coming Soon!

In the coming weeks St Joseph and St Mary will launch our own app for iPhone and Android smart phones. This will allow us to better communicate with you throughout the week and keep you updated with relevant parish news or updates. The app is very well designed and very intuitive. It will be a great resource for parishioners by providing daily Mass readings, Catholic news and prayers, convenient prayer and Confession reminders, our bulletins and more.

We hope for our new app to be a tool for fostering stronger parish life at St Joseph and St Mary and better engaging the New Evangelization.

Though we have not launched to Parish App yet, you can still download it by texting: App to 88202

Please watch in the coming weeks for our official launch announcement and information.
