Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021

St. Joseph, Waukesha

Our Parish Roots

The theme of generosity is central to the 180-year history of St. Joseph Parish. The consistent appearance of generosity can be traced back to 1842 when Reverend Martin Kundig said Mass in a log house  on East Avenue and Main Street. Many construction and renovation efforts have taken place at St. Joseph including the construction of an 8-room school building and gymnasium in 1958.

The Hispanic Catholic parishioners in Waukesha have had a strong presence since 1966 when the Spanish Catholic community was formally recognized. In 1973, St. Joseph hosted the first Sunday Mass in Spanish. In 1979, the Hispanic Ministry Office was created, helping to connect the needs of the Hispanic Catholic community with its priests and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. We honor our history through our shared mission: “We, the Catholic Community of Waukesha,  transformed by the Holy Spirit, worship God; follow Christ through Gospel-centered lives; celebrate our diversity, welcome, love and serve all.”
