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

At St. Joseph’s, preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation begins when our parish teens are in high school. The Sacrament is celebrated during the Easter season of their second year of faith formation. Stu- dents attend preparation sessions, starting with a time of worship, and share in small group discussions with Catechists following a lesson on a particular theme.  Discipleship service, retreats, and participation in the Mass and special Liturgies are also part of the preparation process.

This year, the program is flexible and we can alternate between an online program which will tranistion to an in-class program as soon as conditions permit this year.

When we transition to classroom instruction the Sacrament of Confirmation program will meet on  Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m., in the Parish Hall.
