Attendance at Holy Mass
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 closest to the Altar and fanning out 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.
 
 
Livestream Masses from Saint Joseph Parish  will continue to be offered for the vulnerable homebound at 5, 8, 1030.  Those who are regularly out in public should be attending Mass in person unless you have been out of state, have been around those who have active COVID or have any symptoms of the virus.
    
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.   Others are expected to come to confession to be absolved before receiving Holy Communion unworthily.
