The Shrine is a beautifully retored 19th century Catholic church. St Joseph was built for German immigrants and staffed by Jesuit priests. We offer a Catholic mass every Sunday at 11am and a tour of the church follows each mass.

It has the feeling that God really is there, that he resides there, that he is happy there. It was a church built to glorify God and His creation, not to glorify man and his creativity. Please don't go unless you have plenty of time,...More

This is a small church in the City that is just beautiful. Not as well known as the Cathedral but very beautiful. It is worth a visit to see the detailed artisan work.
