Parish Hours as of 6/1/20:

Our Parish Office is open from 8:30-12:30, Monday thru Friday:  Staff is working both remote and some in office.  We are checking voice mail and email daily - We are HERE for you!

The Church will be open daily from 8am-6pm to come and pray.  Please continue to social distance - 6 feet from one another.

Adoration will remain open 24/7 -  Until further notice there are no scheduled adoration hours.  The Adoration Chapel will remain open for anyone wanting to come pray, but the schedule is suspended to allow everyone to stay home if they would like to do so.  If you are an Adorer waiting for your replacement and they do not come, reverently cover the Monstrance.  Likewise, if you come in and Monstrance is covered, reverently remove and place on table to the left.  (April 13, 2020)

Thought for the timesRelative to the Governor's Mandate:  

We have offerings for Individual Reconciliation, the church open from 8am-6pm daily, and available  Adoration 24/7 to come as you wish.  However, our main goal should be to keep others and ourselves safe as we are mandated by our Governor to ‘stay home’ and only be out of our homes for food/medical/gas/exercise.  Use your judgment—but staying home and away from others is the best practice.

Reconciliation Schedule:

St. Joseph's:  Wednesdays at 6pm and Saturdays at 11am

St. Augustine's:  Sundays 7:30am
