PHOTOS: The new St Joe’s

The new St Joseph’s church has officially been dedicated and is open for worship.

In a message to parishioners Msgr McLoone commented that “over the last seven years as we have planned and prayed about building a new church… Our Dedication Day Weekend will always be remembered as a significant milestone in the life of this proud and glorious parish.”

This Sep, that proud tradition will mark 162 years strong.

Three-and-a-half years ago, in Feb of 2010, the parish gathered to kick off Cherishing our Past ~ Embracing the Future, the capital campaign to raise money to build new church. Saturday’s Rite of Solemn Dedication, presided over by Archbishop Charles Chaput, and the special Sun masses marked the opening weekend.
