 Witamy (Welcome)...

Established in 1934, we are located at 395 South Main Street in Colchester, Connecticut.  We are a non-profit organization that has been serving the Colchester area for over 80 years. 

We take great pride in our Polish heritage and work actively in the community. We have many functions and events for both members and non-members. There is plenty of parking, and our recently renovated hall can be rented for special occasions.  

For the comfort of our guests and members, St. Joe's enforces a no smoking policy in our hall at all times, and restricts smoking in our bar during major events held at the club.  

See the

It is with a sad heart that we inform everyone of the death of Donald Rahl.  Don was a long-standing member of St. Joe's, and he was also on the Board of Directors. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.  He will be missed...

Niech Bóg błogosławi wam, naszym przyjacielem.
(May God bless you, our friend)

Donald Marshall Rahl(1957 - 2016)

Donald M. Rahl, 58, of Colchester and formerly of Smithfield, RI, passed away at Hartford Hospital on January 16, 2016 after a five year battle with melanoma. He leaves his beloved wife, Joanne (Germano) Rahl; his daughter, Jennifer DePiano of Lebanon; his son, Michael and wife Alissa Rahl of Michigan; two brothers, Scott and wife Dale Rahl of Westerly, RI and Steven and wife Bernice Rahl of Kennebunk, ME; five grandchildren, Nicholas, Luke and Alexa DePiano, Audrey and Emma Rahl, and numerous extended family members and friends. Born in Providence, RI on March 1, 1957, he was a son of the late Herbert and Jean (McGrillies) Rahl. Donald was a talented athlete. Beginning in his early years, he excelled in a wide variety of sports and was awarded the prestigious High School Student Athlete of the year in 1975 for the State of Rhode Island by the Providence Journal. He went on to receive a full baseball scholarship at Providence College. Donald married his beloved wife, Joanne on August 24, 1980. In 1982, the couple settled in Colchester, where they made their home and raised their family. Donald worked his entire career for Johnson and Johnson as a Pharmaceutical Representative. Donald carried his love of sports to the next generation through his active participation with youth sports in Colchester. He will be remembered fondly for these things and most importantly as a devoted family man and as a friend who could always be called on and counted on. Friends and family are invited to attend calling hours on Wednesday (Jan. 20th) from 4-7 PM at the Aurora-McCarthy Funeral Home, 167 Old Hartford Rd., Colchester.
