Old Mission San Jose
Founded 1797

We Welcome You to Join Us in Our Mission.

History

At the Ohlone Indian village of Oroysom, Padre Fermin Francisco de Lasuen founded this fourteenth of twenty-one Franciscan missions June 11, 1797. Taught by Padre Narciso Duran, the Ohlone orchestra and choir became famous. By 1830 almost 2,000 Indians were living at the mission. The 1868 earthquake destroyed the adobe church and most other mission buildings. The church was rebuilt in 1985. Additional details can be found here with photographs here and here.

Love

In this week's Reading we are reminded of the love Jesus wants us to share: (Matthew 22:34-40)

"You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Please join us at Mass online as we celebrate this holy season and find ways we can be inspired by Jesus's love.

Today, Saint Joseph Parish/Old Mission San Jose is an active and faith filled parish with many ministries to participate in. See the vision we share in our parish family. During the coronavirus outbreak, please join us for Mass online.
