As early as 1813, Mass was celebrated in private
homes throughout the area. St. Joseph Church
was built in 1841 by a diverse community of
Roman Catholic immigrants to meet the needs of
the growing Catholic population. The nearby
DuPont powder mills, where many parishioners
worked, provided the stonemasons who built the
walls of the church. When completed, the church
was dedicated to St. Joseph, patron saint of
workers. In 1848, the sanctuary was enlarged to
its current size. The bell tower was added in
1878 and enclosed in the vestibule in 1941. This
church is among the oldest serving Catholics
in Delaware.
