Old St. Joseph Church is not only located at the heart of campus, it is the heart of campus.

Welcome to Old St. Joe’s

We invite you to visit Old St. Joseph Church, the home of
St. Norbert College Parish. Established in 1969 as the first college parish in the United States, ours is a Catholic church community with its roots in the Norbertine tradition. Our membership extends to the 2,200 students who call St. Norbert College home, our faculty and staff, and to many who continue to celebrate their active ties to the college. 

But, while our work and ministry keep us focused on the college community, our doors are open to all. Through our common liturgy – the “font and summit” of our life together in the Church – we are able to extend a warm welcome to people of all ages from all over the world.

Where to Find Us
Old St. Joseph Church is located at the heart of the St. Norbert campus at 123 Grant St., De Pere, Wis. Our parish offices are also on campus in Todd Wehr Hall, Suite M22.
