Welcome to St. Joseph Catholic Church (Bradenton, Florida)!

St. Joseph Catholic Church (located in Bradenton, Florida) is a vital, Christ-centered family where  members, as good stewards, are encouraged to participate in the  liturgical life and ministries of the parish according to their God-  given time, talents and treasure.
