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!

We invite all our LGBT brothers and sisters, their family and friends to join us for our 4th Annual Pride Mass on Sunday, June 27, 2021, at 10:30 Mass at Our Lady of Grace Church, 400 Willow Ave., Hoboken. Please reach out to others and let them know they are welcome.

We began our parish LGBT outreach called, “LGBTQ at Grace,” after our archbishop, Cardinal Joseph Tobin, welcomed a gay pilgrimage to our Sacred Heart Cathedral in Newark in May 2017. The following year he invited 20 LGBT Catholics to the cathedral for dinner and a discussion. Our LGBT leader, Gary Stavella, and Christine Zuba, our May parish Zoom chat guest speaker, attended. Since then, we have held meetings pre-COVID and now on Zoom.

People ask me, “Why do you have a Pride Mass?” Because we believe the lives of all people are worth dignity and respect and we have failed as a Church to do that with our LGBT brothers and sisters. That is part of our official catechism.  Pope Francis has asked us to go to the peripheries to find people who have been estranged, disenfranchised or rejected and bring them into the fold.  As we prepare to celebrate our Fourth Annual Pride Mass, we reflect on how inclusive Jesus was and how we need to bring that quality to our parish and Church.

We invite you to sign this LGBTQ youth anti-bullying pledge. Cardinal Tobin was among 18 members of the Church hierarchy to sign it. Your name is kept private.

"As Catholic Bishops in the United States, we join with the Tyler Clementi Foundation in standing up for at-risk LGBT youth in our country. As we see in the Gospels, Jesus Christ taught love, mercy and welcome for all people, especially for those who felt persecuted or marginalized in any way; and the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that LGBT people are to be treated with respect, compassion and sensitivity.”

The St. Joseph's Flea Market has re-opened with a new schedule! Come every FRIDAY from 10 am to 12 noon and SUNDAY after the 10 am Mass to the St. Joseph's Flea Market in the Church basement at 61 Monroe Street in Hoboken. Park in our lot next to the rectory and enter through the alley between the rectory and the church.
 
Get great buys on clothing, accessories, household goods, decor, seasonal items and more. We also accept donations of clean, gently-used items during office hours and flea market hours only.
 
We appreciate the tireless dedication of Martha Valerio, Maria Rentas, Rosalba Cardona and Filomena Baeza to re-launch the flea market.
 
Please stop by to check it out!

The New Jersey Catholic Conference of Bishops has agreed to lift the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass, as of the celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi (June 6).  Please read the announcement.

We thank you for helping us reach our Archbishop’s Annual Appeal goal. Now, if we can redeem the goal in paid pledges by June 30, 2021, we get a 2% reduction in our 2022 annual assessment to the Archdiocese, which is a significant amount of savings. 
 
Also, if you have not yet made a donation or a pledge, it is not too late!  
 
Please consider taking four minutes to watch the appeal video:  www.rcan.org/video
