St. Joseph Mission Statement
The Catholic community of St. Joseph’s Parish in Cobden, Illinois is a family of believers united in faith and heritage. Through Jesus Christ and the gospel message, with Saint Joseph as our patron, we commit ourselves to the values of family and the work of the church. We cherish our traditions and pray that their importance will be reflected in our community as we grow in the Catholic faith and share in the message of Christ.
