About Saint Joe’s

St. Joseph of Arimathea was founded in New Haven, in October of 2006. Since then the congregation has grown in both size and spirit.
As an Independent Catholic Church we offer an alternative for those seeking a more inclusive Catholic experience. For years many have felt shut out from experiencing their Catholic faith in its entirety. St. Joe’s strives to provide the sacraments to all God’s people, regardless of creed, color, gender, Sexual orientation, political affiliation or social condition.
Our congregation was founded to be a church of social change, speaking out for those who have no voice.
We offer opportunities for social outreach and ministry. We believe that actions speak louder than words and we are committed to living out our faith as Catholic Christians.
Our congregation is made up of a diverse group of people, coming from all walks of life.  No matter where you find yourself on life’s journey, this parish community welcomes you in the spirit of Jesus, who came for all.
We invite you to join us for our weekly mass and to embark on a new journey of faith. Become a member of a church that truly has no outcasts!

Start by doing what’s necessary;
then do what’s possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
