Saint Joseph of the Palisade

For over 150 years the Parish of St. Joseph of the Palisades has opened the doors of faith to people of Northern Hudson County. Now we welcome you!

We invite you to come and experience that faith in study, in faith formation and in service to the community.

We invite you to educate your children in our elementary school or our religious education program for children of the public schools.

We invite you to quiet prayer in daily Eucharistic devotion; to participate in and honor the devotions so central to the faith life of our varied ethnic communities; to explore the meaning of a life in faith in all of its stages.

Come be with us at St. Joseph of the Palisades. See the life we live here and that we celebrate. Enjoy imagining your place in our parish as you peruse this web-site of information.

Many Parishioners of St. Joseph of the Palisades do not know that our parish has a second church where we celebrate Mass on weekends in both English and Spanish, hear confessions weekly on Saturdays and hold morning Mass three days a week.

It is a large and beautiful space with fine acoustics and a most worthy setting to celebrate the Lord’s presence. And it is never crowded! It is an especially attractive alternative for the 10:00 a.m. English Mass when our Main Church is so filled with children of our catechism program. And the later Mass in Spanish at 12:15 p.m. is a wonderful alternative for those who enjoy a quiet morning at home before Sunday Mass.
