Mass and Devotions

The dispensation of the obligation to attend Mass has been extended to September 6.

Celebration of the Mass is central to the life of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Wauwatosa. Through the Mass, Christ's sacrifice on Calvary is made present.

  • Saturday Vigil Mass – 4 p.m.
  • Sunday Masses – 8 and 10:30 a.m.

People age 5 and over attending Mass are now required by the state and by the City of Wauwatosa to wear masks. Exemptions to the mask requirement include: Individuals with medical conditions, intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental health conditions, or other sensory sensitivities that prevent the individual from wearing a face covering. Ushers have disposable masks if you forget to bring one.

Daily Masses: Temporarily only Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8:15 a.m. There will be no pre-Mass Perpetual Help Devotions on Tuesdays.

Sunday Mass attendance is limited to 175 people at each Mass. (We have been averaging about 100 people per Mass.) Tuesday and Thursday Mass attendance is limited to 50 people at each Mass.
