Public Celebration of the Eucharist has Resumed

The St. Joseph's College Worshipping Community is safely gathering again for both weekday and weekend Masses.

In-person public celebration of the Eucharist has resumed at St. Joseph’s College, with the usual pre-pandemic schedule:

Weekdays:
12:10am on Mondays and Wednesdays
12:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays

Weekends:
4:30 pm on Saturdays 
9:30 am, 11:00 am, and 7:00 pm (our student mass) on Sundays

Confessions:
11:30am-12:15pm on Tuesdays
3:30pm-4:15pm on Saturdays.

All of our masses will be in the main chapel. 

The 9:30am Sunday mass will also be live-streamed.

 

St. Joseph's College Chapel
 

We are following these protocols for in-person Masses: 

  • Masks will be very strongly recommended (except for at the altar and the lectern; masks will be briefly lowered to consume the Body of Christ, only offered under one species).
  • There will be no communal singing and only one or two musicians, and no wind instruments will be used. The first masses may be without music.
  • The holy water font will not be filled, and the sign of peace will be by bowing, not handshakes.
  • Pre-mass Reconciliation will occur either in the Boardroom (access via the outside door and back deck through the confessional), in the confessional, or on the back deck, at the
    discretion of the confessor. Masks must be worn by both confessor and penitent.
  • Cleaning: the sacristan will see that high contact areas are wiped down after mass (door handles, handrails, and the tops of pews.)
