St. Joseph Parish  is a Catholic community in Avon Lake, Ohio of Christians who have come together under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to give witness to Jesus Christ. We are an active community of 1,900 families located on the beautiful waters of Lake Erie. Just as Jesus welcomes every person with open arms, we at St. Joseph do the same. We have regular outreach, teen, youth and senior groups. St. Joseph Parish encourages stewardship as a way of life through growth in faith, justice, love, and service to others. 

We welcome new members, people searching for a church, and visitors!
