Welcome to St. Joseph Basilica
Welcome to the web site of St. Joseph Basilica in Alameda, CA, a parish in the Diocese of Oakland, CA.
On this site there is information about our church and location, our schools and parish community. You will also find our history, and the most important aspect of our life together, the celebration of the sacraments.
FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT
Our ways, O LORD, make known to me; teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my savior (Ps. 25).
Dear sisters and brothers:
At the beginning of his ministry, “the Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert.” (Mk 1:12) In those forty days alone Jesus confronted challenges and temptations, and the tone was set for his future actions. We are also invited to spend 40 days in the desert this Lent. Not a literal desert (unless you happen to be able to take off for Death Valley for the next six weeks) but figuratively, to an interior place of silence and solitude where we have time and space to listen to God.
