As the suburban expansion began to impact the Manchester area, it was decided to relocate the parish at its present location on Sulphur Springs and St. Joseph Lane.
A temporary church, eight classrooms serving 315 students, a convent, and a rectory were built on this new site.
In 1965, ten additional classrooms were added to keep up with the ever-increasing population of the Parish.
St. Joseph Parish became the first "mega-parish" in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
It's membership grew to three times the size of the average parish.
For twenty years it remained by far the largest parish in the state of Missouri.
