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

Latest News

On Sunday, September 27th, OLG/SJ will resume CCD classes virtually.

For this year only, we will not have a Kindergarten session.

The details for going virtual are still being worked on, but we will be using Google Classrooms where the lessons will be posted weekly by teachers. We will also be using the Pflaum weekly handouts so they could be downloaded and printed out. The teacher may also have other handouts or assignments.

Father Philip will also resume his brief video chat on the weekly Gospel.

We are also hoping to have either a thirty-minute ZOOM lesson and or a short video introduction by the teacher. Those details are still being worked out as we recognize that parents, guardians and teachers will be adjusting to the school academic year. A brief survey was emailed to existing CCD families on August 31st.

Registration will be done online through Google forms - links to the English and Spanish forms on our homepage.

Last day of registration will be September 22nd.

In the Fall, our CCD classes will be taught remotely. Donna Zukowski, our faith formation coordinator, who is also a whiz at computer programming, is finalizing the program and information will be forthcoming. We can use some teachers to assist. If you are interested, contact Fr. Santora at the parish or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

All adults looking to prepare for first communion or confirmation, or to become Catholic, are welcome to contact Fr. Phil and register for our RCIA program.

Mientras sigue nuestra reapertura, con favor de Dios, estamos buscando ayuda para muchas cosas en nuestra comunidad, especialmente en San José. En particular, necesitamos más voluntarios para nuestro flea market, café los domingos, y el ministerio de musica. Simplemente no es justo ni posible, seguir cargando a un puñado de gente con estas responsiblidades; es importante, urgente, que nueva gente se ofrezcan para estas cosas, o no van seguir en el futuro. Tantas veces, he escuchado las excusas, "no tengo tiempo," o "no tengo talento." Con todo amor y respeto, yo les diría: ¡tonterías! Con cualquier cosa, pueden hacer tiempo, y aprender - cantar, hacer café, organizar ropa, muebles, etc. Nadie tiene que ser perfecto o "talentoso." Perfeccionismo es un gran enemigo para nosotros; no permitan, que el "perfecto" se vuelva el enemigo de lo bien. Una invitación especial a los jovenes de nuestra comunidad - adultos jovenes, adolescentes, padres con niños pequeños, y nuevos "empty nesters" - ¡nuestro futuro depiende de su disponibilidad y generosidad! Por favor, consideren ofrecer su tiempo, unas horas del mes, para proveer asistencia, y servir a nuestra comunidad. Pueden hablar con P. Felipe si estan interesados. Gracias a todos por su generosidad.

We are tentatively planning a Fall Festival which will feature the huge used book sale in the school hall, FALL INTO BOOKS. And it will feature Bernadette’s Café for breakfast and lunch. We will be enlisting some volunteers to help us set up and break down the school hall. We hope you will help.  

Justine Cloud of Bayonne won $358.00 in the August 31 raffle. Thank you for your support.

October 26 tickets are available after Mass. You may take some tickets home to sell to family, neighbors and co-workers. Or contact Socorro at the Parish Center and she will mail them to you.

Please consider making a Mass or memorial intention for 2020 at Our Lady of Grace or St. Joseph.  You can call or come by the Parish Center for OLG Masses (411 Clinton St.) or the Rectory Office for St. Joseph Masses (61 Monroe St.) during office hours (listed on the front of the bulletin).  Alternately, you can use the request form located on the church tables.  There is no limit on the number of Masses.

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!
