Sacraments

The Sacraments are the outward signs of the inward treasures-graces-that Jesus is planting in our souls. Each Sacrament is a spiritual event which produces a brilliant diamond of holiness in a person's soul and a responsibility to us here at St. Joseph.

BAPTISMS: English Baptisms are scheduled on a personal basis and the dates and times are flexible. We do follow a strict adherance to the rules and regulations of the Diocese of Charlotte. For the Form and first interview, please call the office.
