About Us

St. Joseph Parish, together with our sister parish of St. Francis of Assisi, is part of the Medford Catholic Collaborative. St. Joseph Parish was established June 2, 1912, and is located in downtown Medford at 118 High Street. Please visit our website at www.medfordcollaborative.org for more information about our parish life, mass schedule, and upcoming events.

The purpose of the Medford Catholic Collaborative is to help our community know, love and serve God in this life so that we can be happy with Him forever in the next. Our goal is to be informed disciples and loving witnesses to our personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
