Church Dedication Ceremony, 2016

Mission Statement

The parish of St. Josephs' is a family of Christians created in the image of a loving God. He has given us faith and gifts which we nurture by His Word and Eucharist. Sent forth by Christ, we strive to share Him with each other in our daily lives and to spread His message of salvation to all.

With Christ as our cornerstone, we attempt to minister to the body, mind, and spirit of our fellow human beings. We pray for God's help and guidance, and that we may love each other as brothers and sisters in the Lord.

James JB Lee Memorial Scholarship Applications
James Jung Byuk Lee was one of the original founding members and the pt Parish Council President of the Korean Catholic Church here in Demarest. He started this church over 25 years ago with the vision of providing a home for the Korean Catholic families and the future generations of our families. Although he has passed, he is leaving behind his legacy through a memorial scholarship fund established by his wife Gemma Yeung Ja Lee. Both James and Gemma firmly believe in higher education so this is the first year they are offering this scholarship through the James JB Lee Memorial Scholarship Fund. Applications are now being accepted from parish high school seniors who will continue their education at a college or university in September. Applications and eligibility requirements are available at the parish office. Applications are due by June 30th with decisions to be made by July 15th.
