The Sacrament for Anointing of the Sick is for anyone facing serious illness or surgery; failing health; or the need for any physical, mental or emotional healing. You don't have to be dying to receive this sacrament.  It is an expression of God's presence and healing power and care. The Sacrament of the Sick can be received more than once.

Additional Information about Masses at St. Joseph and St. John

We are approved for Phase 3 parish operations, however, the the only change is in the number persons who may attend Mass.  Under Phase 3, Ushers, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers are counted in the total. It is clear that neither St. Joseph's nor St. John's can have 50% of occupancy and still maintain the six foot Safe Distancing that is required. 

There could be some misunderstanding about the pew situation. A family unit can all sit in a pew, but if another family or individuals are seated in the pew they must maintain six foot safe distancing from the others to their side. The COVID-19 Supervisor and Ushers will need to carefully insure that the requirements are met at all times. 

Also, remember that effective Friday, June 25th, face coverings are not only required at Mass but also when you leave your car to enter the church.

Consider Cemetery Ministry

Read more about this important ministry.  The burial of the dead has always been recognized by the Church as a religious rite and a corporal work of mercy. Dennis McPhee has served our parish in this role for over 40 years and we thank him for his dedication.  Please prayerfully consider sharing your talents in this wonderful and essential ministry.
