Title

History of Saint Joseph Parish, Burlington, Vermont, 1830-1987

Description

157 year history of one of the multiple Roman Catholic parishes in the city of Burlington, Vermont. St. Joseph Parish recognizes itself as "the oldest national parish in New England." From the parish website: "The story of St. Joseph's is, from the beginning, a story of working-class immigrants in a foreign land, isolated from the prevailing and more prosperous Yankee population, especially in the early years, by differences of language, religion and culture as well as by economic status....The French Canadian community at its best was a close and family-centered one, and the immigrants' desire was to re-establish here what they had enjoyed in Canada--a French-speaking community centered around a parish church, a school and a convent..."
