    Obligation to attend Sunday Mass to be reinstated.

    Archbishop Lori has announced that as of the weekend of June 26-27, all social distancing requirements at mass will be lifted and the obligation to attend Saturday/Sunday mass will be reinstated.  So, as of that weekend, the Saturday 4:30 pm 7:00 pm masses, as well as the 10:15 am, and 2:15pm Sunday masses will be held in the church at St. Joseph.  The 8:30am Sunday mass will be held at St. Augustine.  Note: The  St. James 10:30am Sunday mass will return to the newly renovated church on June 20.  It will be a great blessing to worship once again in our churches!
