HOLY MASS ON THE GRASS – SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 @ 8:30 A.M.

Please join your fellow parishioners as we celebrate the Eucharist this Sunday, September 6 at 8:30 AM on the lawn of St. Joseph’s campus. Our assembly of individuals and families has grown each week – last Sunday 306 of the faithful joined us – a record!  This Labor Day weekend there is an excessive heat warning. It will be cooler when we gather in the early morning, however if you struggle with heat issues, please stay home and watch our YouTube Mass. 

Just a reminder that masks must be worn. No Mask = No Mass.  Social distancing is also implemented. Our primary mission is to protect you, and for you to protect those around you as we continue to journey through this pandemic.  Thanks for your great co-operation.  Here are the other details:

  • Parking is available in the main parking lot only and not in the inner courtyard.
  • When you exit your car, please put on your mask and wear it properly covering your mouth and nose throughout the Mass.
  • Enter through the walk-in gate between the hall and the church. The gate will open at 7:45 AM.
  • Please bring your own beach chair, lawn chair or folding chair. If you don’t bring a chair, you’ll have to stand.
  • Please do not bring a couch or sofa!
  • The usual safety protocols will be in place:
    • You will be asked how you’re feeling that day
    • Make use of the hand sanitation station
    • Social distancing will be respected. Families may sit together and individuals and groups will sit 6-8 feet apart.
    • You must wear your mask throughout the entire Mass, except for when you approach the Minister to receive Holy Communion.

We’ve arranged the liturgical space so the sun will be at your back.  You may want to bring a hat.

Current COVID restrictions do not allow us to pass baskets for your stewardship gift.  We’ll have a basket placed at the exit at the end of Mass for you to offer your envelope or donation.  As always, thanks for your support.

If you’re staying at home, we’ll be praying for you. We are recording this weekends Mass on Saturday morning and it will be available through our social media sites at 4:00 PM.

Let us continue to pray for one another. Be safe and well! Stay cool during this weekend’s heat wave. God Bless You!

Peace, Msgr. Kevin
