About Us...

Our parish was first started as a mission of the Catholic church in Petaluma in 1914.  It officially became a parish in 1918.  

St. Joseph Catholic Church in Cotati, CA is dedicated to the Universal Call to Holiness. In other words, your sanctity in your ordinary life.

Please join us for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Stay connected with us by signing up to our email list.  

My hope is that you feel welcomed and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church your spiritual home.  I look forward to meeting you.

Fr. Raúl Lemus, Pastor
