Welcome to the Church of Saint Joseph in Jim Thorpe. We are one of two Roman Catholic parishes in our Carbon County community that forms part of the Diocese of Allentown. Our parish was founded in 1873 by German immigrants who settled in this area and worked in the railroad and mines.

The Church of Saint Joseph in Jim Thorpe is a Roman Catholic Parish of the Diocese of Allentown. Our Church is guided by Sacred Scripture and the authentic Magisterium of the Catholic Church as interpreted by the Bishop of Rome in communion with the college of Bishops. We strive especially to witness to Christ’s command to love one another by living the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy. Conscious that we are a church of sinners in need of redemption, we gather weekly on the Lord’s Day to seek both reconciliation and courage to live as committed disciples of Jesus
