Welcome to
St. Joseph Catholic Community

“Do not shine so that others can see you.  Rather, SHINE so that through you others can see Him” —C.S. Lewis

“Let your light so SHINE before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.“ —Matthew 5:16


Standing on the shoulders of giants, we look forth to the future of God’s work in Palm Bay!  Where is God calling you to SHINE??  Where is God calling St. Joseph’s, Palm Bay, to SHINE?  Join us as we discern together the Holy Spirit’s vision for our future!  Begin now by filling out our Parish Vision Survey (live 10/1—10/15):


Click on the SHINE logo or the link above and take/submit your survey. Once the survey is complete and the data compiled, our Vision Team will be hosting town hall sessions for all of our parishioners to share data, hear concerns and vision the plan forward.


Pivotal Players Film Series

Bishop Barron is on a new journey to unlock the truth behind the Catholic Church's most influential people. CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players is a multi-part film series that illumines a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church but changed the course of civilization.

As part of St Joseph’s effort to offer adult opportunities in faith formation, we will be showing the 6 episodes of the Pivotal Players, Volume 1 series this Fall.  Episodes will be shown on Wednesdays from 6:45 p.m. – 8 p.m. in the church building (after the children are dismissed to their classrooms for the Parish Religious Education Program) and are scheduled as follows:

1. October 4: St. Francis - The Reformer. 
2. October 11: St Thomas Aquinas - The Theologian. 
3. October 18: St Catherine of Sienna - The Mystic.
4. October 25: Blessed John Henry Newman - The Convert.
5. November 8: G.K. Chesterton - The Evangelist. 
6. November 15: Michelangelo - The Artist.
