ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO



Who We Are

St. Joseph the Worker is a thriving Catholic community off of Highway 20 in Dubuque, Iowa. Established in 1949, the church has a proud history of faith, love and service.

SJTW has reaffirmed its goal to do as Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19-20, to “go and make disciples of all nations.”

If you haven’t been to church in a while and are looking for a closer relationship with God, we invite you to come check us out. We’ll make you feel welcome and help you fulfill your spiritual needs.
