Public Masses Resume; Saturday Mass Starts at 4 p.m.

The public celebration of Sunday Mass has resumed. We limit attendance at each of the three Masses to 175 people (we have been averaging about 100 people per Mass). The Saturday Vigil Mass starts at 4 p.m.

Daily Mass have resumed twice per week. There will be 8:15 Masses on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be no Perpetual Help Devotions on Tuesdays, until further notice.

The dispensation of the obligation to attend Mass has been extended to August 2.

Read about the restrictions and attendance limitations. People attending Mass are encouraged, but not required, to wear masks. (Ushers and communion distributors are required to wear masks.)

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.
