We, the people of God of Saint Joseph Roman Catholic community, Empowered by the Holy Spirit, must manifest to the city of Kingston, New York, and to the world, a clear vision of God's plan for His kingdom as we strive to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ, one another, and the universal Church.

We endeavor to be a welcoming parish, and are dedicated to creating an environment of faith through Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, Sacred Liturgy and by the reception of the Holy Sacraments, study, stewardship, and action, so that in union with our Triune Godhead, we may build up the Kingdom of God. Sharing these ministries, as the Mystical Body of Christ, we as the People of God at St. Joseph Parish challenge ourselves to witness to the truth of His Church in Word and Deed to one and all.

"St. Joseph's Parish celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in 1943. The occasion was marked by the publication of the Diamond Jubilee Journal, but the joy of the parishioners was marred because of World War II, with many parish sons in battle across the Atlantic and Pacific and the restrictions at home in their severest and most critical stage."

"For fifty years, the red brick schoolhouse across the street has been the religious training center of this parish. Thousands of young men and young ladies have come to it and learned of Christ and His great redeeming love for us. They have gone out from it to bring Christ into the homes, and streets and offices of Kingston, in fact they brought the message of God's love to all they met. Please God, all the children who go out from this new school, will go out filled with that same love of God and country and fulfill the purpose of every Catholic school."

"The school building rose and was completed as planned; it was opened for use in September; but Monsignor Connelly died on October 8, 1963. St. Joseph's parishioners, young and old, mourned the death of a dear friend, a dedicated pastor and a devoted father. In the sadness of genuine loss, the parishioners awaited the assignment of a new pastor until December, 1963."
