Welcome to the St. Joseph Parish website. Our parish is a place
where people from all walks of life learn, share, play, celebrate
and suffer together. In all of these experiences we meet Jesus
Christ. We are not an accidental collection of Christians who
happen to live together in the same neighborhood. We are the
Mystical Body of Christ!
In the mid-1800s, 35 Catholic families lived near Cottleville
when one acre of land was purchased for our first church building.
Today with more than 5,000 families we are the largest parish in
the Archdiocese of St. Louis. I invite you to learn more about St.
Joseph Parish and School. God has lavished his grace on us. He has
poured out his love into our hearts. Come experience this grace and
love. Meet Jesus Christ, "the definitive answer to the question of
the meaning of life" (Pope John Paul II, The Church in
