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.
Beginning the weekend of July 1st, the St. Joseph community welcomes Fr. Paul Grenon as its new pastor. Fr. Grenon comes to our parish, having served for many years as the pastor of Saints John and Paul Church in Coventry, RI. Fr. Grenon will be at all the Masses this weekend, so please welcome him and introduce yourselves to him!
At the same time, the St Joseph community bids a fond farewell to Fr. Roger Houle who has served as our pastor since 2001. Fr Houle is assuming the role of Chaplin for the St Antoine Residence in North Smithfield, RI.
May our God shower both men with His Holy Spirit on both of these dedicated servants as they begin their new assignments!
