Fr. Joseph Krupp

Diocese of Lansing

A self-professed “redneck,” Fr. Joseph J. Krupp (Fr. Joe) was born and raised in Montrose, Michigan. He is the youngest of six children born to Gordon and Martha (Ebenhoeh) Krupp. Fr. Joe’s mom and dad both say he “entered the world running.”


Fr. Joe’s childhood was filled with family, friends, faith, and work. His parents’ home was one with wide open doors, where all were welcome. This, Fr. Joe says, is where his formation as a priest and pastor began.

Upon completing his undergrad in history, Fr. Joe entered Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit. He was ordained a priest on 13 June 1998. Since then, he has been privileged to serve in Lansing, Ottisville, Jackson, Adrian, East Lansing, Hudson, Manitou Beach, and now Flint.

Although Fr. Joe’s primary focus is the faith communities of Holy Family in Grand Blanc and St. Mark’s in Goodrich, he occasionally accepts invitations to serve as a presenter at conferences and retreats. He enjoys writing as well, and has been proud to be associated with Faith Magazine, serving as a monthly columnist since its launch in 2000. Check out Fr. Joe’s book, Smart Answers and Bad Jokes from a Priest Who Proves that God Has a Sense of Humor.
