History of St. Joseph

The land on which St. Joseph Church now stands was purchased from two neighbours, George and John Baker on August 23, 1894, each ceding a portion of his property.

The cornerstone was laid and the church built in 1895. The pews were made in 1906 by Bill Ryan, brother of Father Frederick Ryan, the then parish priest.

The same year, the bell was bought from the Meneely Company of West Troy, NY, and bears the following engraving: "The Immaculate Conception—Godfather: Henri McQuade, Godmother: Mrs. L. McQuade" and the names of Joe Beaumaster, Owen Goodine, Isaac Sullivan, John Baker, and Lewis McQuade.

The rectory, built in 1926, once stood on the church ground; in 1929, a sacristy was added on to the rear of the church. It is now incorporated to the Paul Baker house, next to the church.

Prayer of St. Joseph

Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God. I place in you all my interests and desires. Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.

Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls - Pray for me.

This prayer was found in the fifteenth year of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In 1505 it was sent from the Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle. Whoever shall read this prayer or hear it or keep it about themselves, shall never die a sudden death, or be drowned, not shall poison take effect of them; neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy; or shall be burned in any fire, or shall be overpowered in battle.

Say for nine mornings for anything you may desire. It has never been known to fail, so be sure you really want what you ask.
