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. We would like to extend a warm greeting to you and encourage you to explore the ministries and activities that occur in our parish.

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. We are here to help support you locally as you live the Catholic faith in a global society, and 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. Welcome to our parish, and we look forward to growing in faith with you!

The Easter collection is our second most important. As we install air conditioning in OLG Church and plan to replace the front church doors at St. Joseph, we hope to reach our goal of $38,000.  This special collection is open until the Feast of Pentecost on June 5.

Please read the Easter appeal.  We appreciate your generous support of our community and historic church buildings!

Over two years ago, we renovated the top floor of Kelly Hall, the remnant of the orphanage that is at the end of the Willow parking lot, to an emergency apartment. It is now named The Johanna Fugazzi Apartment after a generous donation by her sister, Marie Crowley. It was intended to help people who need temporary housing. We are planning to welcome some Ukrainian refugees. It can comfortably accommodate four people. We will work with the Ukrainian Community Center in Jersey City. But first, we need to plan, recruit volunteers and get everything in order to hopefully welcome them in June.

Parishioner Maria Zoccoli has agreed to chair this project and will coordinate parishioners who would like to volunteer on a weekly team to assist the refugees. Please contact the Parish Center at 201-659-0369 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Bishops of New Jersey have permanently transferred the observance of the Ascension of the Lord to the following Sunday. In 2022, the Ascension will be celebrated on Sunday, May 29, with its vigil on the evening of Saturday, May 28.

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of St. Joseph Church, we have undertaken an extensive renovation of the sanctuary. In support of this huge undertaking, we are offering a limited number of opportunities to dedicate the sanctuary benches on a first-come, first-served basis. We will prepare a small plaque to place at the end of each bench to memorialize each dedication.

A $400 donation will dedicate a single bench, while a $750 donation will dedicate a double bench and allow for two dedications.  Please complete the form on the church tables and return it to the St. Joseph Office at 61 Monroe St. or the OLG Parish Office at 411 Clinton St. along with your donation. Please complete a separate form for each dedication.

Thank you for your support!

The 2022 Mass books are open for in-person reservations at each church during office hours.  You may also complete and mail in or drop off the reservation sheet on the church tables.

It is customary to reserve Mass intentions, which are printed in the bulletin and announced at Mass. You may reserve Masses for the deceased and also for living intentions like a birthday or wedding anniversary. If you plan to notify someone about the intention, we have Mass cards for living and deceased.
