Mayor’s welcome St. Joseph began as a German settlement in 1854, and officially became a city in 1890. It is comprised of 3.89 square miles nestled west of St. Cloud, north of I-94. As Mayor of St. Joseph, it is with honor and a deep sense of ap- Schultz preciation I serve this city I am so very proud of. On behalf of the citizens of St. Joseph, I would like to extend a warm welcome to visitors and residents to our city. I invite you to spend some time here, shop in our stores, dine in our restaurants and talk to our residents. I am sure you will find the time you have spent in St. Joseph to be a unique experience and leave with many wonderful memories and a desire to come back soon. To our citizens, I want to thank you for entrusting me with leading the City of St. Joseph into the next exciting phase of our history. Harnessing the tremendous strengths, talents, creativity and diversity of our people, I know the City of St. Joseph will realize its full potential as one of the most unique and charming cities of Minnesota. St. Joseph is home to award-winning Kennedy Community School, a 138,000-square-foot, PK-8 school that received Gold LEED certification. Designed to accommodate the needs of 750 students, this building was constructed to operate

using 49 percent less energy than a typical school building of the same size. Kennedy Community School was also named among the first ever U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools, schools that demonstrate compelling examples of the ways schools can expand their coursework while also helping children build real-world skill sets, cut school costs and provide healthy learning environments. I welcome students from every part of our state, throughout our country and around the world who have come to St. Joseph to pursue their academic dreams and goals at one of our two exemplary post-secondary institutions – the College of St. Benedict and St. Johns University. We are committed to ensuring St. Joseph remains a safe and vibrant place for you to seek your education and enjoy your experience. Careful planning has allowed the city to maintain a significant amount of open space, park land and recreational areas. In addition to these areas, St. Joseph is the trailhead to the Lake Wobegon Trail, a 62-mile (100 km) trail along a former Burlington Northern Railroad line. This trail runs parallel to I-94, which passes through the cities of Avon, Albany, Freeport, Melrose, Sauk Centre and West Union and ends in Osakis. The redevelopment efforts currently underway in downtown are vital as we evolve into a more vibrant, energetic center where our community gathers. Our restaurants and retail stores have laid a strong foundation on which to build this redevelopment initiative within the heart of the city. In addition we have seen a keen interest

Stop, look and listen Cover photo by Kelly Brown

The Lake Wobegon Trail is one of my favorite spots on the planet. We are all so lucky to have it right here in our backyard. Sometimes the simplest things can be the most magical. A butterfly on a wild flower is a perfect example of this. All we have to do is stop, look and listen and you never know what you will find. I hope everyone has a great summer. Kelly.

in future developments on corridors that surround our community. Our friendly community is host to a variety of activities…July 3 Joetown Rocks Festival, July 4 Parish Festival, St. Joseph Art Crawl, the Farmers Market and Millstream Arts Festival. I encourage visitors to make plans to experience the festivities. The city website is designed to help you gain access to important resources in your city government and community. In our ongoing efforts to communicate effectively with the people of our city, our website (www.cityofstjoseph.com) will provide you with information about the city and community, and allow you to become involved with our city’s many programs and initiatives. You will find links to many of the departments you may need to access as residents or visitors in our city. I hope you find the website useful and informative. Please feel free to contact my office or leave input on our website as I value your comments, opinions and feedback. I am here to serve you and the city of St. Joseph and am very respectful and appreciative of the opportunity to do so. I look forward to working with you in the years ahead. Again welcome to the city; we are glad you are here. Mayor Rick Schultz rschultz@cityofstjoseph.com rschultz25@msn.com 320-260-0393

A pedestrian’s delight St. Joseph is proud of the many interesting and beautiful places it offers both residents and visitors. The city is exactly the right size for a leisurely stroll that takes in many sites and historical points of interest. In fact, many of St. Joseph’s most beautiful areas, such as the lush green college campus with its nooks and crannies of quiet restfulness, can only be seen and appreciated during unhurried strolls. The following are just a few of the city’s attractions: College of St. Benedict 37 S. College Ave. The campus right in the heart of downtown St. Joseph includes an intriguing blend of Old World-style and modern architecture. Visitors can enjoy lunch at the Gorecki Dining Center, stroll the tree-lined walkways, visit the museum and maybe even take in a play or other cultural event at the arts center. For more information about what the college has to offer, call 1-800-249-9840. Sacred Heart Chapel St. Benedict Monastery Located on the grounds of the St. Benedict Monastery just off Minnesota Street (St. Joseph’s main street), the Sacred Heart Chapel is a beautiful, quiet retreat from the busy world. Many visit the domed structure and its cloistered rooms to pray or meditate in its silent hush made soothing by filtered light and timeless stone architecture. Many visitors remark on the pervading sense of inner peace they experience while visiting the chapel. Tours and information are available by calling 320-363-7100. Art and Heritage Center St. Benedict Monastery The Haehn Art and Heritage Center and Whitby Gallery, 104 Chapel Lane, are also located on the St. Benedict Monastery grounds, just west of the Sacred Heart Chapel. The building includes spacious galleries that specialize in showing exquisite Benedictine art works and historical exhibits. Its gift shop offers crafts and art made primarily by Benedictine sisters.

Pedestrian delight (cont.) Libraries/Art Center Visitors might want to check out the superb libraries in the area, including the Clemens Library at the College of St. Benedict and the Hill Monastic Library at St. John’s University. The latter contains the most complete collection of originals and copies of manuscripts from the Medieval Age and is a magnet for medieval scholars throughout the world. Visitors should also be sure to check out the Benedicta Arts Center, which offers stimulating plays, concerts, poetry readings and other arts events throughout the year.

St. John’s University Located five miles west of St. Joseph just off Highway 75, this great “cousin” of the College of St. Benedict is also a perfect place for a stroll among its ivy-covered buildings and its spectacular landscape of hilly wooded land. The autumn leaves around the campus are so blazingly beautiful they attract people from far and wide. For more information about the university, call 320-363-2011.

Abbey Church The bell tower of this church rises magnificently – massive yet graceful – above the treetops and buildings of St. John’s University. Designed and built by the pioneering architect Marcel Breuer in the mid-1960s, the church is world-famous as a masterpiece of the cantilevered style. Its stained-glass windows alone are worth a trip to see it.

This Catholic church in the heart of downtown St. Joseph was constructed more than 150 years ago with stones hauled from parishioners’ fields. It’s the oldest consecrated Catholic church in Minnesota and still meets the needs of the 1,200 parish families today. The addition of a parish center in 2013 which connects the church and school building which houses All Saints Academy, now provides expanded opportunities for community and parish social events. For more information, call the parish office at 320-363-7505.

Wobegon Trail Completed in the spring of 2004, the Lake Wobegon Trail now extends all the way from St. Joseph to Sauk Centre with a northern link to Holdingford and beyond. In early summer 2004, a beautiful Welcome Center, which resembles the style of an old train station, was built at the start of the paved trail. Local residents and visitors from far and wide love to use the trail for hiking, biking, inline skating and, in the winter months, snowmobiling and/or cross-country skiing. Winding through beautiful scenery, the trail has become the pride and joy of the cities it connects. Built on an abandoned railroad bed, the trail was named for famed writer Garrison Keillor’s mythical Minnesota city. Keillor was present at the dedication ceremony when the trail’s first extension was built from Sauk Centre to Avon. A connection to St. Cloud is also in the planning stages.
