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

Are you interested in switching banks or do you already have an account at Investors Bank? There are two great programs that they offer to support non-profits such as Our Lady of Grace and St. Joseph, which is an account holder there.

New Account: If you are interested in opening a new account, please take one of the "Sweet Deal" cards on the church tables and be sure to mention that the parish referred you when you establish your account. Through their "Refer a Friend" program, if your new account meets certain criteria, you will receive a $50 gift card and separately the parish will receive one as well -- win, win! Read on to see how you can further support the parish with the Care2Share program once you set up your account.

All Accounts: If you open a new account or already have an account at Investors Bank, please consider enrolling in their Care2Share Affinity Program. By designating the parish as your non-profit of choice, Investors Bank will make regular donations to the parish at no cost to you. Please take a copy of the Care2Share materials on the church tables and get started today.

Investors Bank has a Hoboken branch at 221 River Street -- please ask to speak with our representative Jordania Rodriguez (201-222-9030) regarding either program. We appreciate your support!
