The Supreme Court Decision this past Wednesday caught us off guard. We were hoping that the Church would be open for Christmas, but now we can return to having a limited number of people at Mass in order to maintain safe social distancing.
Because this is the holiday weekend and the entire staff is off, we are not prepared to open this weekend. We will start celebrating Mass this coming Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8:30 a.m. A reservation is not needed for those Masses.
We will begin celebrating Sunday Masses again next Sunday December 6th. There will be two Masses at 8:30 and 11:30 a.m. and attendance is limited to around 100 people at each Mass.
You will need to make a reservation for those Masses beginning next Thursday morning December 3rd by going to the parish website stjosephbuffalo.org or by calling the office at 833-0298 extension 312.
In the meantime, please join us this weekend for our online Mass for the First Sunday of Advent, and have your Advent Wreath ready to be blessed.
Sorry for any inconvenience but we want to keep you and our parish staff safe during these difficult times.
God bless you and stay well.
