Mass Cancellation for July 4th

Dear friend of St. Joseph’s,Due to a 4K Walk and Run that is scheduled to take place in the Macon downtown area on Saturday morning, July 4th, we will not have a public Mass at our regularly scheduled time of 9:00 am. The 4K event route will require numerous streets to be blocked off downtown, including streets that encircle our church building and parking areas. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but we will still live stream the Mass at 9:00 am, but it will not be open to the public. Confessions at 3:15 pm and Mass in the afternoon at 4:30 pm will take place as regularly scheduled. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation and we hope you have a blessed Independence Day!God bless you.


Please read our reopening directives as we continue to reopen in a safe and healthy manner. The Sunday Obligation for the Diocese of Savannah has been relaxed until the end of July 2020 or until further notice.
