St Joseph Elementary School
- 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.
