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:

  1. Masks are not required for indoor congregations but those who are unvaccinated are urged to wear a mask in respect to others.
  2. The use of hand sanitizer is encouraged as well as social distancing.
  3. 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.
  4. 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, immunity compromised, or "scared of infection" are dispensed ordinarily from the obligation to attend Mass.

---

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is held on Sundays at 4:00pm before the 5:00pm Mass.

Anointing of the Sick is offered on Fridays during the 12:10pm Mass. Conditions for the sacrament are here.

FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students) have "Holy Hour" on Thursdays following the 8:30am Mass. All are welcome to join.
