About St.Joseph's in OrléansSt. Joseph’s Church in Orléans is the jewel of the Parish, established in 1860. Still very active today, the Parish, over and above its religious role, contributes to the educational, cultural, social and community life in Orléans. Many organizations, such as the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the Knights of Columbus, the Daughters of Isabella, the Club 60 for seniors, the Boy Scouts, the Girl Guides and other community groups bring life and commitment to the parish. With its Neo-Gothic architecture and tall steeple, St. Joseph’s Church is a much-admired symbol of our heritage. The Church will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2022.
About our Steering CommitteeIn response to the expressed desire of Orléans’ community to save this regional icon, a steering committee has been established under the direction of our pastor, Father Maurice Dionne. The steering committee, composed of dedicated volunteers, has put together a strategic planning process for a much needed fundraising campaign. Time is the essence in securing funds to preserve this regional heritage.
