Welcome to our St. Joseph parish website, the cyber doorway to our Catholic community in Baraboo. Websites are already one of the well-worn shoes of the 21st Century and, ergo, of the modern Church. We've been as thorough as possible in setting ours up. You should be able to find almost anything you need to know about St. Joseph parish here. We've also worked hard to make it as navigable as possible so you can find what you seek quickly by scanning the options available. Whether you are a parishioner or a visitor, I hope our website addresses your needs and yields the answers you seek. Let me know of any snags you might hit or of anything that calls for our attention. Thank you for visiting us online.
