Welcome from the Pastor

Welcome to St. Joseph’s new website!

St. Joseph Parish serves all the people of the villages of Scituate, Rhode Island (Chopmist Hill, Clayville, Hope, Potterville, and North Scituate) as well as parts of western Johnston.  Founded in 1939, this parish was established to serve the Catholics of the region and to provide the Sacraments of the Church and teachings of Jesus Christ.  We have grown from a small handful of believers to now a community of about 1300 families.  As you will discover in viewing our website, we are a vibrant people of God, involved in the religious education of our young people and in outreach to those in need beyond our borders.

I am proud to be pastor here since 2001.  Together let us continue to grow in the love of Christ and His Church in gratitude for the many blessings we enjoy!

In Christ,

Fr. Roger A. Houle
