St Joseph Church



St. Joseph Catholic Parish

Covid-19 Update


The church will remain open daily for quiet prayer.

All Masses and Communion Services will follow these guidelines:

Parishioners may seat themselves as they are comfortable. We ask that smaller groups or individuals sit in smaller pews so that our larger families can sit in the longer pews. Social distancing is maintained in the wing and the balcony.

Hand sanitizer is only required upon entrance to the church, per the Archdiocese of Washington. Sanitizer is available at communion, but not mandatory. There is hand sanitizer available at various corners of the nave and vestibule.

*By order of the governor, you must wear a face mask in religious facilities unless you have a “bona fide” exemption. If you do not have a face mask on when entering our facilities, we will assume you have one of these exemptions. However, ushers do have masks available if you simply forgot one.

Thank you for your cooperation!
