Attendance at Holy Mass
On Saturday 4 July we will return to having all the readings at the Masses. There will still be no singing.
All are still be required to wear masks to enter the Mass. Social distancing will still be in force. Thank you to all who are doing your part to make everyone’s life easier during this frustrating time. Thank you also to those who are faithfully attending Mass and to all who continue to support the Parish financially and spiritually. If you are truly homebound — not getting out except for doctor appointments– Deacon Clapp willl be available to safely bring Holy Communion to your home. You may leave a message for him at the Parish Office and he will contact you to schedule a time.
The virus is not going to go away. From what I can tell, the way we are following guidelines about sanitizing the building between Masses, social distancing, masks, limiting the amount of time we are together in the building and extra respiration by not singing, etc., if you are getting out to go to the grocery or other places, then there is no reason that you cannot come to church unless you are ill. God bless.
I am sorry for the inconveniences. 
Thank you to all who are striving to be cooperative and are trying to make the best out of this difficult time.
To be succinct the guidelines are:
Everyone must wear a mask.
Everyone must use hand sanitizer.
Chairs are not to be moved or grouped together.
Fill the gym chairs before the parish center chairs.
Bathrooms are for emergency use only.
Due to limited capacity, we cannot accommodate guests at this time.
Doors open 15 minutes before Mass and lock at Mass time or capacity of 95.
Use Parish Center door to enter/exit Masses
Those who are at risk of infection due to age and/or weakened immunity are encouraged to continue to pray at home and, if possible, to avail themselves to participation in the Holy Mass via media opportunities.
Out of charity toward others, those who are ill, fever, cough, etc., within the past 24 hours or who have been with others who are ill, have been ill and have not yet finished quarantine, should refrain from returning to Mass at this time.
Thank you for your patience and for practicing your Faith.
Livestream Masses from Saint Joseph Parish  will continue to be offered for the homebound at 5, 8, 1030.
Readings for Holy Mass
Sacrament of Penance & Reconciliation
Confessions are heard on the parking lot on Saturdays at Noon (I will not wait around if no one is there).  For those who are homebound due to the pandemic Bishop Medley continues to encourage you to examine your conscience at home and make a perfect Act of Contrition.
