Greeting from our Pastor

“For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! “(The First letter of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians)


Welcome to St. Joseph Parish in Sapporo City. In the Japanese society we usually do not use the name of the patron saint but the name of the place where we preach the Gopel. So our church here in Tsukisamu area is officially called “Catholic Tsukisamu Church” in Japanese. More than fifty years have passed since the little flock of Jesus Christ began preaching the Good News here. The number of the faithful has been increasing but not enough yet. Woe is unto us, if we preach not the Gospel to the non-Christian society since they are in need of hearing the Gospel.


If you are looking for the Catholic Church where you can attend the English Mass, please go to the Website of the Cathedral (

Thank you.


May God Bless You!


Fr. Francis X. Fumio Sukegawa
