Reverend Joseph Stoverink, Associate Pastor


My thanks to Bishop Rice for sending me to the St. Agnes Cathedral for my first assignment as a new priest. I was ordained May 26, 2017 at St. Vincent De Paul Parish in Cape Girardeau where I grew up in the Church. I come most recently from St. Meinrad Seminary in Indiana, where I was taught by the monks and lay faculty. Before seminary, I was a student of Notre Dame Regional High School and graduate of Truman State University, receiving a BA in Romance Languages. I’m eager to share the good news in Springfield! I also bring with me experience as a musician, first and foremost on piano.

Here’s to many good memories as your servant and associate pastor in the coming years.
