Welcome to St. Joseph Catholic Church in Ellsworth, Maine! We are happy you found us online.
Through these pages we seek to introduce you to our active faith community. Our Parish is a Catholic community of hopeful and loving people, schooled in compassion, who support one another on our journey of faith. As disciples of Jesus Christ, in lifelong ministry with the poor of the world, we are being made new through God's spirit. As bread is broken open and shared, we freely witness to the Reign of God.

Christmas Time and Easter Time highlight the central mysteries of the Paschal Mystery, namely, the incarnation, death on the cross, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ, and the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The Sundays and weeks of Ordinary Time, on the other hand, take us through the life of Christ. This is the time of conversion. This is living the life of Christ.
Ordinary Time is a time for growth and maturation, a time in which the mystery of Christ is called to penetrate ever more deeply into history until all things are finally caught up in Christ. The goal, toward which all of history is directed, is represented by the final Sunday in Ordinary Time, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.
