Announcement Regarding Return to Mass
Historic Church Open
The Historic Church is open Monday thru Sunday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm for prayer. Please abide by social distancing of staying 6 feet away from other people and no more than 10 people in the church at a time. It will continue to remain open for prayer even after we return to a limited public Mass.
Additional Opportunities for Interactive Prayer
St. Joseph’s of the Lakes offers the following online services to those who wish to participate interactively in worship services and Holy Week events using a video-conferencing system.
Having an internet-connected device (computer, cell phone, or tablet), an email account and a desire to actively worship is all that’s needed. If you are interested please send an email to [email protected] Usually a day or so before the worship or prayer session starts, you will receive an email invite with an active link from [email protected] To improve security, the email will have a short personal message stating the purpose of the Zoom session with a reference to St. Joseph’s of the Lakes.
A few minutes before the session starts, click on the link. If Zoom is not installed, it will do so, after which you will be asked to join the session. That’s all there’s to it.
Liturgy of the Word Service
This service is the online version of our Word and Communion services held in Historic Church or Small Chapel. To start it will be held every Monday starting April 13th at 8:30 am. If there’s more interest, other days and times can be added.
Prayer Group (Christian meditation, guided prayer, and Scripture study)
The Prayer group is hosting an online Zoom conferencing session every Thursday until we can once again meet at church. The start time is 7 pm each Thursday.
