All times and churches are subject to changes which will be announced via our Facebook Page.

Dear Parishioners,

As we learn to implement the Bishop’s directives, it will take a lot of prayer and patience.

In simple terms, there will be No Masses celebrated for the general public. Our normal Mass schedule with its times and churches is suspended. I will offer Mass each day to fulfill the day’s intention(s).

Please make offertory donations online: St Anthony | St Joseph.

Masses are live-streamed at

Fr Patrick
