Mass and Devotions

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.
  • Daily Mass – 8:15 a.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays

People age 5 and over attending Mass are required by the City of Wauwatosa to wear masks that cover the mouth and nose through June 16. People attending Mass expect us to provide a safe environment, so we are enforcing the mask requirements. The Wauwatosa mask mandate remains in place.

Please note that the City of Wauwatosa is monitoring compliance with the mask requirement. If we are found to be in violation, we risk losing our ability to have public Masses, so please wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose.

We have taped off every other pew, so distancing can be maintained.

See the COVID-19 page for more details on health and safety precautions.
