COVID-19 Update 11/18/2020

Dear Fellow Parishioners, This is the latest update to the Covid-19 restrictions in the Santa Cruz County, as per Governor Newsom. Effective Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 all Churches are closed for indoor service until further notice. This is extremely difficult and challenging for all of us especially as we are entering the Advent and Christmas seasons. Because of the unpredictability of the weather, we have decided to live stream the Mass at 7:00am and 10:00 am on Sundays. There will be no weekday daily Mass or Saturday Vigil Mass. If you participate in the Mass at home, you can come to the church from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to receive communion outside the front doors of the church by Father and an Extra Ordinary Minister of the Eucharist. Please wear a mask and follow the signs for safe distancing. If you are not feeling well, please receive spiritual communion at home. Offering baskets will be available for your convenience. Advent books will also be available for a donation. Thank you for your patience and support of our Parish. We will inform you of any updates or changes as soon as we hear. God’s Richest Blessings, Fr. Wayne Dawson Pastor

 

Registration is Open for Fall 2020

First Eucharist - Begins Sep-Oct 2020

At the heart of who we are as Catholics is the Eucharist. Signs, symbols, tradition, and anticipation all blend to create a true desire within our children to celebrate the mystery of transubstantiation.

At St. Joseph's, students begin preparing for First Eucharist in 2nd grade or above. Students, along with their parents, attend preparation sessions with Catechists. Discipleship service, a retreat, and participation in the Mass and special Liturgies are also part of the preparation process. The Sacrament is celebrated during the Easter season.

The Sacrament of First Eucharist program will meet on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m., in the Parish Hall, once the program begins.
