The Co-Cathedral of Saint Joseph is a cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States. Located in Burlington, Vermont, it serves the Catholic faithful of the Diocese of Burlington. The mother church is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Burlington.HistoryThe original St. Joseph's church was the first French Canadian parish in the United States, founded in 1850. The cathedral was constructed to serve the growing French-speaking Canadian population that had immigrated to the North End of Burlington during the mid 19th century.The building was designed in 1883 by Fr. Joseph Michaud who was a self-taught architect hailing from Montreal. The cornerstone was laid on July 4, 1884. The church was dedicated on St. Jean The Baptist Day (Fête de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste) on June 24, 1887, and blessed by the Archbishop of Montreal, Édouard-Charles Fabre.The church seating capacity was designed to accommodate over 1200 worshipers.Because of low attendance and finances, the two Burlington Catholic cathedrals are in the process of merging. Sunday Masses will be celebrated at St.Joseph, while Immaculate Conception will have a weekday Mass at Noon and a monthly Mass in Vietnamese. Parishioners can also request to have their baptisms, weddings and funerals held there.
