Welcome to St. Joseph Catholic Church in French Settlement and St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church in Whitehall! We are a faith family dedicated to serving our Lord. We gather in the name of our Heavenly Father, we are guided and protected by the Holy Spirit, and we strive to imitate Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Word. We invite all who enter our beautiful churches to join us in worship, where we give thanks and praise to our God, and are sent forth to serve our families, our local community, our state and nation, and the poor and vulnerable members of society.
