Welcome to the new 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. Thom Lombardi - Pastor

Fr. William Kummer - Administrator

Saint Joseph, our patron, pray for us.

Scholarship Granting Organization Scholarships available!

As of July 1, 2013 the new voucher expansion bill goes into effect. More students may be eligible for vouchers and SGOs.

Do you think you may qualify based on your family’s income? Click Read More for the income requirements.

If one of your children already receives a voucher then your other children are also eligible.

Did your child receive a voucher last year but because of an increase in your income you are no longer eligible? The new law allows for an increase in wages up to 200% of free/reduced lunch.

Any student’s family that meets income requirements is now eligible for a SGO scholarship and then a voucher the following years.

Contact the school office at 260-639-3580 if you think you may qualify.
