• In view of the requirements of the Diocese of Manchester and the mandate of Bishop Peter Libasci during this medical emergency, beginning March 17, 2020, all public Masses are to be cancelled both during the week and on the weekend. St. Joseph’s Church will be available to individuals for private prayer. Father Elson will celebrate Mass privately every day for the intentions of the people and Mass will not be suspended or changed. 

In Addition:

  • All special Faith Formation and Parish events (the Easter Basket Drive, Crowning of Mary, Bake Sales, Faith Formation’s End of Year Celebration, St. Joseph’s Feast dinner) are cancelled or postponed until further notice.
  • There will be no First Reconciliation preparation classes this year. We will work with those students in the fall.
  • Faith Formation students will complete on-line Personal Safety lessons at home. Students will also continue to work on their Gospel Weekly lessons.
  • Parish Pastoral Council meetings are cancelled until further notice.

Please let Father Elson know if you have any questions or concerns. Take care of yourself, your loved ones, and your neighbors. Pray for an end to this and healing for all. Until we meet again…
