St. Joseph continues to follow COVID-related health and safety measures.
Those measures have allowed us to safely celebrate Mass each weekend, and twice-a-week daily Masses for parishioners.
We have increased our capacity for Mass attendance starting this weekend, but we have not let down our guard for health safety.
Here’s what you can expect at Mass:
We continue to update our website with the latest information relating to Mass and parish activities during the pandemic. See our COVID-19 page.

The obligation to attend Mass has resumed. Read the archbishop's column on restoration of the obligation to attend Mass, and on situations when you would be relieved of the obligation. We will have expanded capacity in church.
People attending Mass are required to wear masks, per the state order and per the Wauwatosa city ordinance. If we are found not in compliance, we risk losing the ability to have public Masses; the City of Wauwatosa is monitoring compliance. If you forget a mask, disposable masks are available; ask an usher for one. If you have a medical issue that merits an exemption, please let Fr. Dennis know of that situation.
The Saturday Vigil Mass starts at 4 p.m. Daily Mass is celebrated on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:15 a.m.

We are all pilgrim people on different legs of the journey home. At St. Joseph, we pray for all to encounter Christ, be transformed by Christ, and accept Christ's commission to spread the Gospel.
If you've been away from the church for a long time or short time, you're still welcome at God's home. If you are coming from another faith tradition or no tradition at all, we welcome you home to the Christian Church founded by Jesus and expanded by his apostles to all people.
If you've moved into the neighborhood and are looking for a vibrant parish for your faith life, we welcome you to our Christian family.
We're happy to answer questions about our parish, about the Mass, about Catholicism and the Catholic Church today, and about how we as a parish of St. Joseph in Wauwatosa can serve you. Read More.
