Together in Spirit

Covid-19

We know that the Covid-19 is affecting all of us and in different ways. Here are St. Joseph of the Lakes current guidelines:

We at St. Joseph of the Lakes continue to follow Archdiocesan and Minnesota Department of Health Guidelines for best practices regarding Covid-19 in celebrating the Mass and other operations here at St. Joe’s.

The mask mandate has been lifted. We recommend that those who have not been vaccinated or care for a person who is immunocompromised to continue to wear a mask for Mass. If you are ill or caring for someone who is ill, please continue to watch the Mass online as the dispensation from our Sunday Mass obligation is still in effect in these cases.

Our parish has returned to congregational singing and our priests and lay ministers are processing in at the beginning of Mass and out at the end of Mass. W have also returned to processing up for communion (Body Only) and social distance requirements in the pews are being relaxed. We will have sections of pews available for those who prefer to social distance.

If you have any questions regarding Covid-19 procedures here at St. Joe’s please contact Amy Moore at [email protected]

*By attending the 5:00 pm Mass on Saturdays you agree to be filmed for our recorded online Mass.
