Welcome to Saint Joseph’s Polish Catholic Church

Welcome to Saint Joseph’s Polish Catholic Church, a vibrant community centered around faith and a deep sense of community. We invite you to join us as we explore the beautiful significance of the liturgical season of Advent.

What is Advent?

Advent is a time of preparation and anticipation as we await the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a period of reflection, prayer, and joyful expectation that begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and concludes on Christmas Eve. Advent is a season of hope, love, peace, and joy.

Discover the Traditions and Customs

During Advent, Saint Joseph’s Polish Catholic Church embraces various traditions and customs that have been passed down through generations. These practices help us deepen our spiritual connection and enhance the sense of unity within our community.

Advent Wreath

The Advent wreath is a beloved symbol of this liturgical season. Our church proudly displays a beautifully crafted wreath adorned with four candles. Each candle represents a different aspect of Advent: hope, love, joy, and peace. The wreath serves as a visual reminder of the journey towards Christ's birth.
