UPDATE ON PROTOCOLS FOR COVID-19:
The protocols for COVID-19 have been relaxed since the outbreak of the pandemic. However, there are still some advisories:
- Masks are not required for indoor congregations but the Diocese recommends masks in light of the Omicron outbreak.
- The use of hand sanitizer is encouraged as well as social distancing.
- Missalettes are available in the pews. However, please consider using your device if you wish to follow along with the Liturgy. There are several apps available for your use. Click here for a sample. You may want to purchase a St. Joseph Missal for the same purpose. Catholic Supply (St. Louis) is one source for the missal.
- There is no dispensation from attending Mass or Holy Days in the Diocese of Jackson. Attending Mass on a weekday instead of Sunday or a Holy Day does not fulfill the obligation. Those who are sick, infected or have low immunities are dispensed ordinarily from the obligation to attend Mass.
There will be no Parish School of Religion (PSR) this month (JAN) due to the Omicron outbreak in schools. We hope to resume in February.
