St Mary's Parish


St. Joseph Church has a very long history with many stories. Part of its history is as a welcoming community for joining parishes of St. Paul of the Cross (1864), Dayton; St. Elizabeth (1939), Cherry Creek; St. John Fisher (1940), Dayton; St. Joan of Arc (1950), Perrysburg; and St. Joseph’s Church, (1898) Gowanda.

Together we continue to move forward and bring the Gospel message to our larger overall community. I hope that you might join us in continuing to bring the message of Jesus Christ to others, as we continue on our pilgrim journey each day.
