St. Joseph is a Roman Catholic church in Brookfield, Connecticut, part of the Diocese of Bridgeport.

History[edit]

A St. Joseph Mission Church has existed in Brookfield since the mid-1880s but the present parish was founded in 1941. The present St. Joseph Church was designed in the late 1980s by Antinozzi Associates now of Bridgeport, CT.[1] The present church was dedicated in 1992.

Peragallo Pipe Organ[edit]

The organ was designed by the Peragallo Pipe Organ Company of Paterson, New Jersey. It is a pipe/digital 3 manual instrument and was originally installed in 2002. In August 2010 the Parish announced plans to bring Peragallo back to modify the instrument.
