Dear Friends of Saint Joseph Cathedral,

Greetings in Jesus Christ, and welcome to the Cathedral website! As Rector of this historic church and beautiful family of faith, I am very pleased and proud that we can share with you many of the dimensions of Cathedral parish life through this useful media.

Saint Joseph Cathedral was founded in 1869 and later became the seat of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Manchester, when the Diocese was canonically erected in 1884. Throughout the past 142 years, the people of Saint Joseph’s have served one another in love and witnessed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Cathedral has many rich and noble traditions, not the least of which is a deep reverence for the sacramental life of the Church, which is expressed so joyfully and lovingly in the celebration of Holy Mass every day. There is also a tremendous spirit among the families of the parish; a spirit of generosity, warmth and kindness which is easily noticed when one enters the church on any day. There exists here a strong corps of volunteers who give generously of their time and talent, all to build up the body of Christ.

Here at Saint Joseph Cathedral the vision of Christian life is alive and well, active and growing. I hope you will find your tour through this webpage informative and inspirational, and know that you and your family are most welcome here. We would love to have you walk with us on our journey of faith.

With prayers for God’s rich blessings in your life,

I am Yours faithfully in the Lord,

Monsignor Anthony R. Frontiero
