Parish Community Center


A Legacy for Tomorrow
            An Historic Opportunity for Today
 
Church of Our Lady of Grace and St. Joseph Community Center
 
The history of the Parish of Our Lady of Grace is rich in tradition, devotion, pride and dedicated parishioners. Our Church has been serving the distinct needs of the Hoboken community since established in 1851.  Through much sacrifice, the many generations of parishioners that have preceded us here at the Church of Our Lady of Grace provided us with many beautiful Church properties. 
 
Now, in different times, we come together and embrace the opportunity to express our gratitude for what we have inherited.   Our Church has been lovingly restored, our magnificent organ refurbished and we now have an opportunity with the addition of St. Joseph’s Parish, established in 1871,  to create a beautiful Parish Community Center from our underutilized Convent.
 
Renovation of the former convent required quality workmanship and bold innovation and while we have done most of the work we still have a way to go. For starters, the Parish Center is now fully accessible, with the installation of an elevator. Several walls have come down to create a new library, two conferences rooms as well as meeting space for parish committees. We have also created office space for Parish business, offices for our priests and a gathering space for our parish societies. Included an updated kitchen and dining area. Our plans include room for other non-profit agencies and we seek to continue our association with important community programs like “In Jesus’ Name”.
 
This project is a significant one for both Our Lady of Grace and St. Joseph’s as together we embark on our next chapter together. Our goal is to create an unbroken chain of invigorating parish life that will handsomely and immeasurably enrich our unique Hoboken community. We can, through a sense of grace, sacrifice and stewardship, preserve our rich history and prepare our parish for the next three hundred years of service.
 
It is our sincere hope that every parish family will consider contributing toward the creation of The Parish Community Center in some fashion. We understand that not everyone is as financially fortunate as others, but every gift counts!
