Come and visit us.
St. Joseph Catholic Church is located in southern St. Petersburg, Florida, on 22nd Avenue South, just east of the 22nd Street traffic light. If you are visiting this area on vacation, we are very convenient to the downtown area and the beaches. See the map for precise directions.
St. Joseph's is a happy, loving parish known for its hospitality and spirituality.
