Thank You to All Who Helped Make the Pontifical Mass with Bishop Gainer Possible!

Our Traditional Latin Mass community gifted Bishop Gainer with a pair of Vimpae with both his current coat of arms embroidered (which will be removed after June 21st), and his new coat of arms (underneath the current shield) when he retires. The Parish of Saint Joseph gifted him with his own ceremonial Chrism Oil stock to take with him when he administers the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Mass Intentions

Currently there are Sunday and Holy Day Extraordinary Form Masses scheduled through September 10.  If you would like to request an Extraordinary Form Mass or Masses, place your intentions in an envelope marked “TLM Mass Intentions – Attn: Donna” along with a stipend of $10.00 per Mass and drop it in the collection basket, or call Mary Ellen at the rectory.  So that we can accommodate all requests, at this time no more than 5 intentions per family, please.


The Sacrament of Confirmation in the Traditional Latin Rite will be administered before the Latin Mass on Holy Trinity Sunday, June 4, 2023. Parents, if your children are twelve years old and older and are properly catechized and prepared to receive this Sacrament, then please make sure to contact Deacon Thomas Owsinski, the Parish Director of Faith Formation, to insure that the required registration has been received. Deacon’s email is [email protected]. Confirmation interviews will be scheduled with the Confirmandi during the month of May.

We are also happy to announce that Sheldon Altschuler, a member of our community, will also be baptized, confirmed, and receive his First Holy Communion at this Holy Mass on Trinity Sunday alongside his daughter, who will also be confirmed. Please keep Sheldon and all of our Confirmandi in your prayers.

After this Mass on June 4th we will have a light reception with cheese/crackers and drinks. Please note there will not be a potluck social on the fourth Sunday in June. Please bring drinks and foods, such as cheese and crackers, etc.
