Welcome to the web site of Saint Joseph Catholic Parish, Hessen Cassel, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The parishioners and I are so excited you have decided to stop by and visit us.

The purpose of this site is to tell you the story of Saint Joseph Parish. It will provide you with all sorts of information about our church, our fantastic school, and all of the parish's other ministries as well as important things you need to know about your Catholic faith. As you browse through it you will see that some of it is still under construction. We hope that you find here what you are looking for. If not, please feel free to contact us directly.

In the meantime, may the Lord JESUS continue to bless you and your family.

Fr. William Kummer - Pastor

Saint Joseph, our patron, pray for us.
