According to the congregation, St. Joseph the Worker is a multi-racial parish:

Where we acknowledge that we are children of one God and brothers and sisters in Christ called to live in unity and peace, whose being is centered in loving God and others especially in the celebration of the Eucharist, which is a sign of our unity in Christ, whose love, is rooted in Christ, is expressed in our commitment to alleviate human suffering wherever it is found, and in our concern for justice for all people of the world especially the poor, the sick, the elderly, the youth and the oppressed.  Whose love is inclusive, welcoming all, respecting all and making our parish a sign of the unity to which the Spirit calls the church and the world.
