Parish Guidelines

St. Joseph Parish Guidelines

In order to continue to serve you and at the same time protect one another from illness, please follow these simple guidelines, which are effective immediately:

THINK OF YOURSELF AS INFECTED!  This will help you THINK OF OTHERS

No one wants to catch a virus, nor does anyone wish to be the one who unknowingly passes a virus to a person with a fragile immune system. 

STAY AT HOME!  If you must go out, consider where you go, what you touch, how you clean before and after yourself.

OBSERVE all State of Maine-issued directives. 

CLOSED:  Church and chapel until further notice from the Bishop.  Please pray from home.

CLOSED!  The Parish Hall.

PARISH OFFICE:  Open to visitors by appointment only.

We will continue to staff the office.  Please call or use the email first instead of coming to the office in person or using your key. Contact:  [email protected]  or  207-667-2342

KEY HOLDERS:  Think twice if access to any of our buildings is absolutely necessary. Instead, accomplish what you can via phone or email. 

MASSES & MASS INTENTIONS:  Masses will be said in private by our Priests.  Mass Intentions will be honored.  New Mass Intention requests can be requested via email or telephone.

EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS:  May not visit hospitals, nursing homes or the homebound until the Bishop resumes public Mass.

SUPPORT:  An easy way to continue your financial support of your parish is to enroll in the WeShare program on line.  We thank you all in advance for continuing your pledges during this difficult time.  www.stjosephellsworth.weshareonline.org
