St. Joseph Catholic Church
Del Rio, Texas
St. Joseph Church is a vibrant and continuously growing parish community striving to encounter Christ in the Sacred Scriptures, the Liturgy and the Sacraments. United as a Church, we foster a Culture of Encounter with one another as we build up an environment of Christian unity and charity. We are sent by the Holy Spirit to reach out to our brothers and sisters who are distant from God; to offer them the truth of the Catholic faith and to form them as missionary disciples of the Lord, with a focus on the family, youth and young adults.
