For more than 140 years, St. Joseph's Catholic Church has stood in the shadow of the Capitol Dome, at the top of the Hill. Before there were buildings to house the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress or even offices for America's elected representatives, there were two institutions that stood side by side on Capitol Hill - the United States Capitol and St. Joseph's Church.
