1. All Families

Greetings St. Joseph Marello Parish Families,

 During this very uncertain time of closures, distancing, and separation, our God is with us.  At St. Joseph Marello parish, you are in our prayers at each Mass for strength and perseverance.  Parenting today has presented many new challenges to you and we are here to walk with you, and support your family mental, faith, and sacramental needs.  To that end, we wanted to re-introduce ourselves!


Pete Buccola has assumed responsibility to coordinate the K5 Religious Education program, including the sacraments of First Reconciliation and Holy Communion.


Mary Maguire and Lisa Nolette oversee the Edge program for kids in middle-school grades 6-8, including the sacrament of Confirmation.


Lindsey West most recently joined SJM parish as Director of High School Youth Ministry and Young Family Ministry Coordinator.  Her bio is here at https://stjosephmarello. org/


Together, with the support of our pastor, Father Phil Massetti, OSJ, our parish council, and countless other volunteers, we are working diligently to support you this coming school year.  We are thinking differently and creatively this year--especially for communications and parish life...But we need your input!  Please take 10 minutes to provide feedback via this critical survey that will help our team focus our efforts.  

In the meantime, please stay connected with us:
