Fr Mike KeucherDear all,

God is good!  It is my joy and honor to welcome you all to St. Joseph’s online presence. We are a community of God’s people of faith here in Shelbyville, Indiana.  It is a blessing to be here.  Only Christ could have brought us all together.  And we celebrate that he has done so.

I have not been here long, but I already can tell there is something special about this parish.  There are good people. There is good, genuine faith.  Each and every one of us is called by God to do our part to make this place even better than it is right now.

There are plenty of ways to get involved here.  I believe there should rarely be an evening or a time throughout the day where there is nothing going on here.  Our school adds a great deal of life to our parish, and so do all of our ministries.  Please consider being a part of one or more of them.

What is our mission?  To be the Church, which, as Scripture says, is the body of Christ.  We are that body!  Everything our Lord did when he walked on planet earth 2000 years ago–that is what we do now!  We feed, we teach, we anoint, we baptize, we forgive, we worship!! 

My brothers and sisters, welcome to this corner of the kingdom.  May we find God here, together.

Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Mike Keucher, VF
