Welcome to St. Joe’s!
Our vibrant faith community has been an integral part of Manchester, Ballwin and west St. Louis County since 1865.
Among the largest parishes in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, we are comprised of more than 3,000 families and households today—serving each other and sharing our faith through over 80 distinct ministries in worship, education, social outreach, athletics, community and stewardship.
Of course, a parish this large can be a little overwhelming when you first arrive. We hope you’ll take some time to explore all that St. Joe’s has to offer you (and your family.) Chances are, you’ll find it’s a great place to grow in faith and build lasting friendships that feed your spirit.
