Welcome to St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church, a Christ-centered community of believers from diverse backgrounds and interests. The parish was established in 1906 to meet the religious needs of several families that had emigrated from Italy and settled in St. Helena, Pender County. These were joined later by families immigrating from Austria, Czechoslovakia, Russia and the Ukraine. In 1952, the current site of the church and cemetery, about a mile south of Burgaw on NC Highway 117, was purchased and the Church was built. The rectory and parish hall were added later. The modestly sized parish is located in a predominantly rural farming region and through its ministries it serves people from Pender, Duplin and New Hanover counties. More detail
