ABOUT THE CHURCH
ABOUT ST JOSEPH’S CHURCH
St. Joseph’s Parish has been a Catholic mainstay in the Yorkville neighborhood since 1873, when it was founded by Jesuits from what was then St Laurence O’Toole Church (now St. Ignatius Loyola) to minister to the German speakers who at the time made up the largest segment of the Yorkville population.
Although St. Joseph’s Parish was founded in 1873, its origins go back more than a decade before that – to the time when the German-speaking Catholic immigrants who were clustered in Yorkville worshipped in the chapel of the now defunct St. Joseph’s Orphanage, located on Avenue A (as York Avenue was then called) and 89th Street.
