Rev. MSGR. JOSEPH VOGELWEID, P.A., the longtime pastor of St. Peter's Catholic Church in Jefferson City, MO from 1938 to 1969, served the Jefferson City Roman Catholic diocese for many years as well as the Catholic population which worked in the State Capital.
A native of St. Louis, Msgr. Vogelweid was ordained on June 14, 1917 by Archbishop John J. Glennon at the New Cathedral of St. Louis, and served at a number of parishes in Jefferson City and elsewhere as associate pastor and pastor.
When the Diocese of Jefferson City was established in 1956, Msgr. Vogelweid became part of the clergy of the new diocese, which he served in various diocesan-wide functions, among them being the first Vicar-General (deputy to the authority of the Bishop of the Diocese).
He remains the first senior priest of that diocese to serve as Protonotary Apostolic, an honor conferred by the Vatican.
Msgr. Vogelweid also served on the Jefferson City Park Board as a member. After retiring as Pastor of St. Peter's in 1969, he continued to serve in various pastoral and ministerial roles in the Jefferson City area.
Msgr. Vogelweid's funeral Mass was concelebrated at St. Peter's Church by Bishop Michael McAuliffe and other clergy of the Jefferson City diocese with a large crowd of mourners in attendance. He was buried on the Diocesan Priests Lot at Resurrection Cemetery in Jefferson City.
A large grey granite ledger stone marks his resting place. He was widely mourned by both the Catholic and non-Catholic residents of Jefferson City, with whom he was quite popular.
