Parish Update -- May 1, 2021 - St. Joseph the Worker
Dear Parishioners of St. Joseph Catholic Church and Corpus Christi:
-- Though, the mask mandate will be lifted in the City of Starkville on May 1, the Diocese of Jackson has not lifted it's mandate. Though many have been vaccinated, this seems to be out of concern for the newer strains and for the number of people gathered in one space. Protocols may adapt very soon, but as of the present moment, not much has changed for Mass.
-The Ladies Auxiliary are having a bake sale. You can find the order form by clicking the button below. Proceeds will help sponsor the their yearly scholarship for a senior in High School.
