St. Joseph Co-cathedral, Pacific Street
St. Joseph parish, Prospect Heights, is located at 856 Pacific Street, Brooklyn NY 11238, telephone 718-638-1071. The website is linked here. The parish was established in 1850 by Archbishop John Hughes of New York. The diocese of Brooklyn was created in late 1853. "Diocese of Immigrants" shows an older church here with one steeple. The cornerstone of this church is dated 1912.
The above interior photo was taken in early 2012, before the extensive renovations.
This banner appears adjacent to the apse, along the Dean Street side of the church. Any photo may be enlarged by clicking on it.
The former school, built around 1920, is a senior residence at 683 Dean Street. The church apse may be seen to the east.
This view southeast from Atlantic Avenue shows both the church and the school. In 2012, construction continues on the 22-acre Atlantic Yards project, of which Vanderbilt Avenue (crossing this photo) is the eastern end. --- The bulletin reported attendance at three Sunday Masses on 8.14.2016 as about 375.
