We visited St. Joseph's for Sunday mass. We were very impressed with the architecture and art. We love visiting different churches on our travels. This was a memorable one.

Our daughter had her wedding here and the interior was a beautiful setting for it. Father Andrew is a very warm and friendly pastor. I highly recommend a visit!

We were there for Sunday services and felt like we were home. Not only is it a beautiful church, but the parishioners were welcoming and made you feel at home. Don't miss it if you are into seeing beautiful churches.

I have lived in the Bowling Green area for the past three years and finally took myself to Saint Joesph Church. I was so Impressed with the Church and the Pastor. I was bought up Catholic and was very proud to attend the mass and plan to continually attend.
