About Us


On behalf of our priests and entire parish family, we would like to extend a warm welcome! Based in the foothills of North Georgia, St. Joseph Catholic Church is located in Athens and also serves the communities of Bishop, Bogart, Comer, Danielsville, Hull, Statham, Watkinsville and Winterville. We offer religious education programs for children and adults, as well as spiritual and social activities and ministries in social and humanitarian concerns. As a diverse and multi-cultural parish, we welcome all to know and explore our faith, love God through prayer and worship and serve others as disciples of Jesus Christ.
