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 visitors. Jo and Ros from Sydney wrote, “We want to pass on a heartfelt thanks for your warm welcome at Saturday Night Mass. Apart from Christmas Midnight Mass in Slovenia 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.”
The Catholic Parish of St Joseph’s is committed to providing a safe and nurturing culture for all children and vulnerable young people in our parish.
