Dear Parishioners and Visitors,
Thank you for complying so willingly and kindly to the pandemic protocols here at St. Joseph Church. Last week, 17 priests on the southern tier of the Diocese of Manchester were unable to celebrate Masses due to their own positive test results for COVID-19-related illnesses. As such, we continue to strongly encourage mask wearing while in the church building, we continue to apply a plant-based disinfectant to all pews and high-touch areas following each Mass, and the EMs continue to wear masks and sanitize hands prior the distribution of Holy Communion and following each time a communicant receives on the tongue. All food services in the parish hall remain suspended until further notice.
Again, thank you for your helpful participation in keeping yourself and those around you safe and healthy! We’ll get through this together … and soon, praise God!
With prayerful best wishes,
Fr. John Mahoney
