St. Joseph’s Church is located on the corner of Macquarie & Harrington  Streets in central Hobart. It is the centre of worship for Hobart Catholic Parish.

St Joseph’s is the oldest Catholic Church in Hobart. The first Mass was celebrated on Christmas Day 1841.

The Community at St Joesph’s welcomes and encourages visitors. Jo and Ros, from Sydney,  wrote recently,

“To Fr. Peter,

I want to pass on a heartfelt thanks for your warm welcome at Saturday Night Mass.  Apart from Midnight Mass in Slovenia last Christmas your parish has been the most welcoming we have ever encountered.  I thought that you and your parishioners deserved to know how much it meant to two travellers. 

 Thank you.
Jo & Ros (Sydney)”.
