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

Our Winter Book Sale in OLG Church has begun and will continue until Valentine’s Day. You can get some good buys and huddle in front of the fireplace to read. We thank our Book Buddies Margaret Brophy, Robert McDonough, Erin Molta and Noreen Fitzgerald for their hard work.

We just renovated the interior of Kelly Hall for an Emergency Transitional Apartment. There is a large room as you enter, which would be a living room, a kitchen, laundry room, bathroom with a shower and a corner multi-purpose room. The large bedroom space will be divided into four small bedrooms. We need to furnish it and buy household items and are asking you to consider donating AMEX or VISA gift cards.

We will be convening later this month individuals who have background and experience in emergency housing as housing advocates, social workers, lawyers and much more. If you feel qualified to assist, please reach out to Fr. Santora at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We are also looking for a generous donor to name the apartment as well as a much more generous donation to rename Kelly Hall. We are dreaming but unless we do, we never know who is willing to help. Over the last five years we have restored the exterior of what we call Kelly Hall, named after Msgr. Kelly, a former pastor. This is the remnant of the former orphanage that was demolished in 1972. It houses the heating system for the school and church below. The large smoke stack reminds us that when it was built it was heated by burning coal. This building houses our new emergency apartment. We are looking for a very generous donor who would like to rename Kelly Hall after him or herself or a loved one, living or deceased. If you would like to discuss the possibility, please contact Fr. Santora.

Please consider making a Mass or memorial intention for 2021 at Our Lady of Grace or St. Joseph.  You may reserve 2021 Mass intentions 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 on the church tables and mail it in or drop it in the collection or at the Parish Center or St. Joseph Rectory. 

We now can accept donations and other payments to the parish from Venmo and Zelle!  It's fast and easy.  For more information and instructions, please click here.

Tickets for the February 22 raffle are available after Mass. You may take some tickets home to sell to family, neighbors and co-workers. Or contact Socorro Martinez at the Parish Center (201-659-0369), and she will mail them to you.
