St. Joseph, Sea Isle City

Since its foundation 118 years ago in 1884, St. Joseph Church has been serving the Catholic community of Sea Isle City, through not only weather extremes, but population extremes as well. To meet the enormous seasonal changes, St. Joseph parish expands its regular weekend Mass schedule from 6 Masses to 17 weekend Masses in three different locations.

The church building itself has been moved one block and has undergone several interior changes and remodeling but still has the ceiling that, legend holds, was made from the inverted hull of a ship--not so difficult to believe of an area where fishing was the predominant resource.
