Who We Are...
Saint Joseph Parish is a vibrant, welcoming Roman Catholic parish built on the pillars of worship, service, and education. Founded by Fr. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., we are the area's oldest Catholic worshipping community, and we have been stewarded by Holy Cross priests and religious since our establishment in 1853.
The educational ministry of our parish is Saint Joseph Grade School, a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. The plaque in the entryway of Saint Joseph Grade School reads "Be it known that Christ is the reason for this school," which centers our school community in faith upon entering our school and leaving the school. Our wonderful faculty and staff carry this message with them daily as they work to foster Catholic identity and maintain academic excellence.
