Mass Information
Indiana Catholic bishops have extended the dispensation from the obligation of Sunday Mass attendance until further notice. Please see the diocesan COVID-19 website for more details as well as information for Catholics, such as livestream and TV Mass information, as well as prayers and resources such as spiritual communion.

Saint Joseph Parish will continue with our normal Mass schedule while taking appropriate precautions. We also invite you to subscribe to our parish YouTube channel to access weekly Masses on video as well as other videos including rosaries and hymn sings from our parish choir.

Update 3/29/2021: Following the most recent directives from the diocese, all Masses at Saint Joseph Parish will now include congregational singing. Masks must be worn by congregants when singing.

Way of St. Joseph Pilgrimage Walk
Celebrate the year of St. Joseph by participating in a family-friendly pilgrimage from St. Joseph Church in Mishawaka to St. Joseph Church in South Bend on Saturday, May 1, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker. The Way of St. Joseph will begin at 9:00am at St. Joseph Church, Mishawaka, and will wind along the River Walk to St. Joseph Church, South Bend, where it will end with a prayer service, food, and fellowship in the parking lot and playground. There will be three on-ramps along the route for any participants who may prefer a shorter route.

The event is free, but registration is recommended at For any questions, contact Fr. Matt Fase, C.S.C., at

Flowers for St. Joseph
During the Year of St. Joseph, we have moved our statue of St. Joseph forward to a more prominent location in the front corner of the church. There are votive candles, a kneeler, and prayer cards available to invite moments of prayer. Beginning in the Easter season, members of the parish are invited to bring in flowers to place by the statue. Sign up here to bring in flowers. Contact Theresa Slott at with any questions.

Learn About & Support Hope Ministries
Hope Ministries, a faith based ministry in South Bend, seeks to transform the lives of its guests who have suffered the ravaging effects of poverty, addiction, and homelessness. The pandemic has created new and unexpected challenges for Hope and our parish’s ministry there. Demand has skyrocketed. On a typical pre-pandemic first Friday, the parish would serve around 100 people. Now that demand has more than doubled to 250 people. Plus, we can no longer cook and serve the meal. For the past year, parishioners have donated money, and volunteers have purchased the makings of hearty meal and delivered the supplies to Hope where guests and staff prepare and serve the meal. We are in need of regular, monthly donations to sustain Saint Joseph’s monthly work at Hope. Contributions in support of this ministry may now be made online at

If you are interested in learning more about Hope and participating in this ministry, view the recent online conversation about Hope or contact John Conway ( or Cathy Hall (
