St. Joseph’s Reopens For Mass

St. Joseph Parish is happy to announce our new Sunday schedule of Masses, effective immediately. 

  • Weekends: Saturday: 5:00 p.m. Sunday: 7:30 a.m.; 9:00 a.m.; 10:30 a.m.; 12:30 p.m.; and 5:30 p.m. in the Church and 11:00 a.m. in the Auditorium.  

  • Weekdays: Monday through Friday: 8:00 & 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning: 8:30 a.m.

Following government directives, the church is allowed to admit 25% of possible occupancy – approximately 180 people. Worshipers will be expected to bring their own face coverings and to wear them while they are in the church, as well as to maintain proper distancing. Proper seating is also indicated. Pews have been marked to indicate which pews are open and which are closed. Elderly parishioners and those with health issues are encouraged to continue to remain at home and avoid any crowds.

Since we will again be celebrating Mass in our church in real time, we will not be taping and posting any further video Masses on our website or on You Tube. We do not have the facilities for live streaming. Mass is available on television on such stations as CFN (Catholic Faith Network) or EWTN. We apologize for any inconvenience.

As we resume Mass, we rejoice at this step out of our separateness and toward shared life and prayer.

Sincerely yours in Christ Jesus,
James P. Swiader
Reverend Msgr. James P. Swiader, Pastor

December 8, 2020 inaugurated the Year of Saint Joseph, below is the prayer promulgated by Pope Francis

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
