Welcome to Our Lady of Grace and St. Joseph, two of the most deeply-rooted and oldest Roman Catholic churches in the United States. As of January 2008, we merged into one parish with one website. This website provides an overview of the ministries and activities that occur in our parish.

At this time we would like to extend a warm greeting to you and encourage you to explore the rest of the site. We are a large community that is here to help fulfill your spiritual needs as well as help you find some peace in the busy Hoboken and Jersey City areas. Throughout these pages you’ll notice that we are here to help support you locally as you live the Catholic faith in a global society.

Our entire parish family wants you to know that regardless of any situation or the past, we welcome you to share your talents and interests with us. Each day we strive to create a spirit-filled and service-oriented parish that is a beacon of faith, hope, and love not only within our community but in our society as well.

Please feel free to visit us at any time, join us at one of our Masses, or attend one of our events! Once again, welcome to our parish, and we look forward to growing in faith with you. May God bless you and keep you.

Warm Regards,
Church of Our Lady of Grace & St. Joseph

Latest News

At OLG, our Book Ministers are hosting the Winter Book Sale, “From Ground Hog to Mardi Gras,” now through Sunday, Feb. 23.  Come early to OLG Mass and browse at the church entrance to get some good buys during the month of February! 

We begin Lent on Wednesday, February 26. Ashes will be distributed at all our Prayer Services and Masses.

OLG Schedule: 10 AM, 3 PM and 5 PM Prayer Services; 12:30 and 7:30 PM Masses

The 7:30 PM Mass at OLG is especially planned for Young Adults. The leadership team will be present and serve in several ministries: music, hospitality, and liturgical.

“The Art of Pausing: A Lenten Retreat to Reclaim a Sense of Balance in Our Lives” with Judith Valente is scheduled for Saturday, March 7, from 9 AM to 3 PM in the OLG Parish Center at 411 Clinton Street.  $20 cost includes a morning snack and lunch.  Sign up by completing and returning the registration form by Monday, March 3.  The registration form is available on the church tables or it can be printed from the website -- please see right side of our homepage.  Please join us! 

Each year, our Archbishop Cardinal Tobin invites us to support and help those who need it in our Archdiocese. Through Catholic Charities, for example, we offer mental health counseling, assistance for challenged adults, a residence for abused women who have children and the St. Lucy’s Homeless Shelter in Jersey City, to name a few. There are also other ways we help Cardinal Tobin support our schools, seminarians and senior priests.

Each parish is given a goal, and ours is $30,000. We need each person’s support. If everyone would donate $100 over the year, we would go way over our goal. But if you give something – any amount – it helps us reach our goal and we increase our participation rate, which is a good sign. Every registered parishioner received a letter and pledge envelope in the mail. Please return them in the collection or to the Archdiocese. If you did not receive one, please take the brochure and envelope on the church tables.

You also can donate online: www.rcan.org/ways-to-give  Please designate "Our Lady of Grace/St. Joseph Parish in Hoboken" under "Select Your Parish" so that our parish receives credit for your generosity.
