OUR WORSHIP SPACE

Saint Joseph the Worker church was built in 2000 after moving from our location at 261 Lake Street where Saint Joseph Chapel was located since 1955. The church is designed to seat over 800 parishioners.  In addition to the beautiful worship space, there are staff offices, several conference rooms/classrooms, a full kitchen and a gymnasium.

The Altar dominates the sanctuary of the church. In the Sacred Congregation of Rites, Eucharistic mysterium, the main altar of the church is described as “the sign of Christ himself, the place at which the saving mysteries are carried out, and the center of the assembly, to which the greatest reverence is due.”

Crucifix

This beautiful crucifix was purchased from St. Kieran Church in Berlin, NH.
