Welcome to St Joseph’s Riverwood
St Joseph’s, Riverwood parish is a welcoming, supportive community of believers inspired by the life of Jesus. We are called to make Christ present in our parish, in our local community and in our world.
Our mission is to know Christ and to make him known; to be a community committed to discovering Christ present in each person through our ministry to each other, our service to the wider community, the joyful celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments, and our active concern for social justice.
We have many ministries, such as the Catechist Program which provides special religion classes to Catholic pupils in local public schools. The Sacramental Program is parish based and supports parents in their primary role as faith educators of their children especially in the preparation of each sacrament of Reconciliation, Communion and Confirmation.
St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Riverwood is our local parish school.
