Welcome to Our Lady of Grace and St. Joseph, two of the most deeply-rooted and oldest Roman Catholic churches in the United States. Our Lady of Grace, founded in 1851, and St. Joseph, founded in 1871, were merged into one parish in 2008. 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!
Each year, Cardinal Tobin invites us to make a financial sacrifice to support the extraordinary needs of the Archdiocese in an Annual Appeal. We are grateful for your generosity because it helps support essential ministries and programs of our Archdiocese.
Our Parish goal is $32,216. If we reach this goal in paid-in donations by June 30, our Parish is eligible for a 2% reduction in our annual assessment to the Archdiocese. Also, if we go over this goal in pledges as of June 30, we will be eligible for a rebate, which comes back to our Parish, unassessed, to be used at our own discretion.
Please support the Appeal by using the envelopes on the church tables, responding to the materials you may have received in the mail, or going online to donate.
Cardinal Tobin thanks us. Please pray for the success of the Annual Appeal. Your sacrificial support makes it possible for us to carry out the vital work that we are called to as missionary disciples of Jesus.
The Catholic Social Club has a ton of great upcoming events! Here's the current schedule. We encourage you to come out, make new friends and deepen your faith! For more info, contact Maria Zoccoli, our Pastoral Associate, at
The 2024 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.
Tickets for the parish's bimonthly raffle are available after Mass. The next winner will be drawn on February 26. 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. Thank you for your support!
