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.

A group of us attended Palm Sunday Mass. Following the Mass, we went on the docent-led tour. We had about 20 in our group. The docent was fabulous; very knowledgeable. The church is amazing. We were also able to see the rectory next door.
