Welcome to the Churches of St. Joseph - Our Lady of Fatima - Holy Family


I am writing to let you know that Fr. Anthony Craig is on administrative leave to address personal issues not related to the sexual abuse of minors. To assist the parishes, I am appointing Deacon Daniel Goshey as Administrator in the interim. Fr. Craig will continue as pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church, Crosby; Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, Garrison and Holy Family Catholic Church, Hillman.


Fr. Anthony

Dear Parishioners,

This week I ask you to please pray for the priests of the diocese of Duluth. All the active priests will be at the clergy conference Monday to Thursday with our new bishop. We normally have a speaker on some topic, but this year it will be our bishop. It will be a very important time of discussion on various topics for the good of our local Church. This bishop has been very kind and open with we priests in his first months as our bishop. This makes me grateful to have him and hopeful for the future. 

As you probably know, last weekend we distributed our capital campaign launch document for your review. Those who were not at Mass at St. Joseph’s that weekend should be receiving a copy in the mail. After your careful review of the material, I invite you to join one of our feedback sessions on either Thursday October 7th at 6:30 PM or Friday October 8th at 9 AM.  

Also, on October 7th, the Church celebrates the feast day of Mary, Queen of the Holy Rosary. This feast day was established by Pope Saint Pius V on the anniversary of the victory at Lepanto on October 7, 1571. The naval victory was attributed to the Virgin Mary whose intercession was entreated through the recitation of the Holy Rosary by the Holy League Christian forces facing the invading Ottoman Turks. The Church then proceeded to dedicate the month of October to the Rosary so that individuals, families, and communities would pray it. Let us do this daily for protection of the Church from Satan, protection and spiritual growth of our families, and for love of our Lord’s saving mysteries. It is good to renew our devotion to Mary as individuals and especially families to pray the Rosary daily during the month of October. God bless you and love you.

In Christ,
Fr. Anthony
