Church History
German immigrants desiring to practice Catholicism in their native language founded St. Joseph’s Parish in 1863. Father John Ehrenstrasser became the first pastor in 1865. This handsome brick and stone church, the second house of worship for the parish, was constructed at a cost of $30,000 and dedicated on October 13, 1897 by Bishop Casper H. Borgess. While St. Joseph’s tranquil interior has seen several changes, its stately exterior has been only slightly altered over the past century.

Mission Statement:
We, the people of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Adrian, Michigan, are united by our faith in Jesus Christ, God’s Word, the Sacraments, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to show the gifts we have and grow as the Body of Christ in our services to one another and to our largest community.
