The first mass in the Moose Jaw parish of Saint Joseph was celebrated in 1883 by Father Saint-Germain. The Catholic service took place in a Canadian Pacific Railway car because the church had not been built at the time.

The first church was purchased by Father Gratton in 1891 for $200. The very modest building was located at the corner of Manitoba Street and 10th Avenue.

A brick church was finally built in 1901. The old one, which had become dilapidated over time, was sold to a  Moose Jaw resident and was made into an ice house.

La première messe de la paroisse Saint-Joseph a été chantée à Moose Jaw en 1883 par le Père Saint-Germain. L’office catholique eut lieu dans un wagon de train du Canadien Pacifique car l’église n’était pas encore construite à l’époque.

La première église fut achetée par le père Gratton en 1891 pour la somme de 200$. L’édifice, très modeste, était situé à l’angle de la rue Manitoba et la 10e avenue.

C’est finalement en 1901 qu’une église en brique sera construite. L’ancienne, devenue vétuste avec les années, sera vendue à un résident de Moose Jaw et deviendra un entrepôt pour de la glace.
