Effective June 15, 2020, Bishop Guglielmone has given parishes permission to increase our allowable capacity to 50 %  for Masses. This increased capacity must comply with all guidelines previously established and continue the requisite social distancing to ensure the safety of all present. (See guidelines posted on the Church doors and at www.sjccs.net)                                                                      Additionally,  beginning June 15th we will be able to resume small group meetings on the parish campus– as long as all guidance regarding social distancing and sanitizing are followed. If your group would like to return to meeting please contact the church office to schedule. Please note that previously scheduled (standing) meetings will not be automatically resumed. You must contact the church office to be added to the Parish Calendar. We will be scheduling three months at a time for the remainder of 2020.
