Pastor: Father Ray Moss
As I begin the eighth year as your pastor, I cannot help but think of how far our parish has progressed in such a short time. The greatest outreach of our parish continues to be our food pantry. The numbers of people we help every day is staggering. Again, we can use your help with this also. Finally, the greatest asset of our parish, is the people who call St. Joseph their home.

Pastoral Associate: Deacon Pat Bradley
I was born in McKeesport, Pennsylvania the fourth of seven children in a strong Catholic family. I often refer to myself as a Roaming Catholic because of my years of travel. My family moved from Pennsylvania to California in 1960 when I graduated from high school. It was in high school that I realized that I was called to be a deacon. However, that was very pre-Vatican II and so I was told that I was crazy, I would be a priest. Priscilla and I married in Denver in 1965 and some time later the diaconate programs started to accept candidates. I was accepted into the formation program for the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey where we were living and, some 5 years later, was ordained by Bishop Guilfoyle on October 4th 1980. As to the roaming part I have served the people of God in the (arch)dioceses of Camden, Oakland, San Francisco, Zaragoza Spain, the Military Services, Denver, and now Cheyenne. Although I am assigned to St. Joseph Catholic Church for liturgical ministry, I am in full time ministry as Director of Pastoral Care at the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center here in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
