 St. Joseph Parish Mission

​St. Joseph Parish is a faith community established in 1891 to serve the spiritual and temporal needs of Catholic Christian believers in the New Kensington area. As a Catholic Christian community, our parish is dedicated to the worship of God and celebration of the sacraments. We are committed to knowing Christ and the power of the Resurrection. With this understanding, we seek to serve our brothers and sisters in this church, in the community, and throughout the world in bringing about the Kingdom of God. ​

 St. Mary of Czestochowa Parish Mission

​The parish of St. Mary of Czestochowa in New Kensington was founded in 1893 by Polish immigrants who came to industrialize and farm the area. Now a Catholic community of various ethnic backgrounds still committed to our baptismal call to be the Body of Christ by hearing the Word of God, celebrating the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, and becoming Christ to one another.​

Called to use our unique and special gifts, bestowed upon us by our heavenly Father, we are committed to strengthening the faith of our members from the youngest to the oldest, continuing our journey of a lifetime, and reaching out to the wider community by education, service and evangelization. We seek to build a stronger community through the efforts of all parishioners, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
