Funeral Procedures during COVID-19
Our lives have all changed due to the pandemic. However the painful loss of a loved one has not. Because of our belief not only in the immortality of the soul, but also in the resurrection of the body, the Church professes hope in the face of death, and acts with charity in the funeral rites.

If you are a parishioner scheduling a funeral at St. Joe’s, know that we pray for you and will help you with the funeral Mass arrangements. Call us at (716)833-0298. Thank you for your patience and understanding of these mandatory state imposed restrictions.

To comply with NYS and diocesan guidelines, if you are not vaccinated we ask that you continue to wear your mask and maintain distance.

  • We will maintain distance between households so we will continue to ask you to follow the directions of our ushers.
  • To enter church, we ask that you continue to please use the glass doors off of the parking lot.
