Welcome to St. Joseph Basilica

Welcome to the web site of St. Joseph Basilica in Alameda, CA, a parish in the Diocese of Oakland, CA.
On this site there is information about our church and location, our schools and parish community. You will also find our history, and the most important aspect of our life together, the celebration of the sacraments.

 








A COUNTER CULTURAL KING

Today we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King, instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925 in response to the growing secularism in society. “If we ordain that the whole Catholic world shall revere Christ as King, we shall minister to the need of the present day, and at the same time provide an excellent remedy for the plague which now infects society. We refer to the plague of anti-clericalism, its errors and impious activities.” (Quas Primas #24). Click here for more info
