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

Do you donate to the parish using the Zelle mobile/online payment transfer service?  The parish's bank is making some changes that affect how we receive donations using this service.  As of September 26, the parish will no longer be able to accept donations made through the Zelle app.  We only will be able to accept Zelle donations initiated directly through your bank account -- if your bank partners with Zelle, and you access Zelle to initiate a donation by logging in to your bank's online/mobile banking platform.  If this change affects you, please consider contacting your bank or financial institution and designating a set amount each week or month that will be mailed as a check to either church: OLG at 400 Willow Ave. or St. Joseph Church at 61 Monroe St.  If you have any questions, please contact either church office.
We will not be using Missalettes next year so we invite you to purchase your own Missal to follow the Sunday readings and Mass. English Missals are $5; Spanish Missals are $8. Please complete and return the form in the bulletin in the collection or mail/drop off at the Parish Center or St. Joseph Rectory. Deadline to order is Monday, October 26, 2020. 

Please consider making a Mass or memorial intention for 2021 at Our Lady of Grace or St. Joseph.  You may reserve 2021 Mass intentions now by calling OLG at 201-659-0369 or stopping by the OLG Parish Center (411 Clinton St.).  For St. Joseph, please call 201-659-0221.  You may also complete the form in the bulletin and mail it in, drop it in the collection or at the Parish Center or St. Joseph Rectory.

The parish is hosting a Zoom discussion on "RECLAIMING WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP IN THE CHURCH” on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 from 7:30 to 9:00 PM. We have invited Sr Arlene Flaherty OP, to lead the discussion. Sr Arlene is a Bronx native and Blauvelt Dominican. She studied at Darlington Seminary the same time Fr Alex was there. She has worked in Jamaica, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan, and is now director of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation for the Atlantic-Midwest Province of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. As usual this will be an open, roundtable format conversation.  To sign up, please contact the Parish Center at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Mientras sigue nuestra reapertura, con favor de Dios, estamos buscando ayuda para muchas cosas en nuestra comunidad, especialmente en San José. En particular, necesitamos más voluntarios para nuestro flea market, café los domingos, y el ministerio de musica. Simplemente no es justo ni posible, seguir cargando a un puñado de gente con estas responsiblidades; es importante, urgente, que nueva gente se ofrezcan para estas cosas, o no van seguir en el futuro. Tantas veces, he escuchado las excusas, "no tengo tiempo," o "no tengo talento." Con todo amor y respeto, yo les diría: ¡tonterías! Con cualquier cosa, pueden hacer tiempo, y aprender - cantar, hacer café, organizar ropa, muebles, etc. Nadie tiene que ser perfecto o "talentoso." Perfeccionismo es un gran enemigo para nosotros; no permitan, que el "perfecto" se vuelva el enemigo de lo bien. Una invitación especial a los jovenes de nuestra comunidad - adultos jovenes, adolescentes, padres con niños pequeños, y nuevos "empty nesters" - ¡nuestro futuro depiende de su disponibilidad y generosidad! Por favor, consideren ofrecer su tiempo, unas horas del mes, para proveer asistencia, y servir a nuestra comunidad. Pueden hablar con P. Felipe si estan interesados. Gracias a todos por su generosidad.

Justine Cloud of Bayonne won $358.00 in the August 31 raffle. Thank you for your support.
