I would like to register as a new parishioner.

If you would like to register as a new member at St. Joseph Parish, please click here to open the New Member Registration Form. Fill out the form to the best of your abilities listing only those currently living in your home (adults/children over 21 should register separately; please do not list children who have moved away). Please give as much information on Sacraments as possible, and call your church of Baptism to receive a "Certificate of Baptism." Completed forms can be emailed to the parish office or mailed to the Mount Saint Peter parish office at 100 Freeport Road, New Kensington, PA 15068.


I would like to schedule a Mass for a loved one.
