Welcome to St. Joseph Parish!
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.

2020 Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service
Each year, St Joseph’s joins with several area churches for a Thanksgiving Ecumenical Service. Since we aren’t able to worship together this year, the Ecumenical Group has produced a video service that you can enjoy when it is convenient for you.
Featured in this service are the following:
Rev. Paul Grenon, St. Joseph Catholic Church, North Scituate
Rev. Johanna Marcure, Trinity Episcopal Church, North Scituate
Rev. Effie McAvoy, Shepherd of the Valley United Methodist Church, Hope
Rev. Kim Nelson, North Scituate Baptist Church
Fr. Dante Tavolaro, St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Greenville
The service also includes an original recording by the Trinity Episcopal Church Choir.
GIVING TREE INFORMATION: This year more than ever we need to continue our usual Christmas gift giving traditions. As we start Advent, we will continue to have our Giving Tree (the basket on the Altar) filled with the usual gifts we buy each year for children at Holy Spirit Church in Central Falls and for teenagers in state foster homes. If you have not been coming to church yet because of Covid, please consider stopping by the Church and picking up one or two of our little Angels from the Basket on the Altar. Please purchase the gift and return it to us by the weekend of December 14/15. Please do not wrap the gifts. Thank you in advance for you kindness.
