Covid-19 Update

Important Updates to Mass Procedures as of 11/20/2020

According to the Maryland Governor and Charles County Commission, churches may have in-person services to 50% building capacity.

Daily Masses, Saturday 4:00pm Mass, Sunday 9:00am and 11:00am Mass— The church is open at 50% capacity, which is 124 people. Ushers keep a head count of everyone in the building. There will be a strict cut-off at 124 people. (Sunday 11:00 am Mass is currently the only Mass time that has regularly reached this number)

The church is open daily for quiet prayer.

We have resumed taking up the collection during the proper part of the liturgy, at the Offertory Chant. The ushers will come to each pew, wearing masks and gloves, for you to place your offering in the basket. For your comfort and convenience, we are still recommending online giving.



For the most up-to-date information about masses, confessions and other news, please sign up for email updates by texting “Pomfret” to 84576. You may also visit us on social media:  St. Joseph’s – Pomfret or @stjoepomfret.  For questions or assistance with this, contact Beth in the parish office.

PLEASE sign up for Online Giving  to support your parish during this crisis.  It is easy and secure:  click on the Online Giving tab above.
