Reopening of Saint Joseph’s: Under present health regulations it is not possible to reopen St Joseph’s Church fully. When health directives permit, our joy will be to open the church doors at St Joseph’s, so that we may be together again around the Altar. The Pastoral Council with the Passionists, looked at all our available space. The maximum number present for a Mass is 45. With sadness I write these words. I never thought that restricting people for Mass could ever arise. Then the pandemic stopped our world and church in their tracks. Still, God is not absent but is with us as we pray and work our way safely out of this. This depends on all of us understanding why it is not safe to fully reopen the church to all who wish to come. Our history for the past 150 years had open doors to all – no passports needed, nor any certificates. But that day will come again and the sooner the better! God will lead us through this and has offered us a new way of being His People. ‘What did God teach us through Covid19?’, would be good for our next Conversation in better times that are coming.
In the meantime: weekday Mass at 8.30 a.m. and 11 am on Sat On last two Sundays of June, people wishing to come to a Sunday Mass, up to a capacity of 45 people, for information: go to: www.stjoeparis.org
