St. Joseph continues to follow COVID-related health and safety measures for the public celebration of Mass. Weekend Masses are 4 p.m. Saturday, and 8 and 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
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, 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.

Pope Francis has declared this the "Year of St. Joseph," our parish's patron. Read more about the designation and learn more about St. Joseph at a special section of the archdiocesen website. Then, watch for coming information on how our congregation will pay special attention to our patron this year.
With tremendous sadness we note the January 7 death of Fr. Steve Malkiewicz, OFM, who for many years celebrated Masses at St. Joseph. He was an incredible preacher who taught us much about our faith and about how to love life.
Eternal rest grant unto him, Oh Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

We won't be able to have the annual parish dinner auction this year due to the pandemic, but we still need your support. Last year, the auction raised more than $75,000 for the parish – money that funds the many services provided by St. Joseph and that helps keep the lights on. An offsite dinner might be possible on Saturday, March 13. Until then, you are encouraged to make an auction donation. Download the donation form, and return it with your donation to the parish office.

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.
