Sunday Masses may resume on June 28, 2020 at 50% of building capacity. At that time, the pastor is to determine the proper schedule for Sunday Masses, taking into consideration the needs of his community and the need to allow time to sanitize the church between Masses. Sunday Masses and other devotions will continue to be livestreamed. In addition to parishes, the Diocese continues to broadcast live Masses and recorded events on the Diocese of Dallas website and local television. During such Masses, there will be an act of spiritual communion.

  • All Catholics of the Diocese of Dallas remain dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass “on Sundays and other holy days of Obligation” (canon 1247) and remain dispensed until further notice, even after public Sunday Masses begin.
  • Saturday Masses, including vigil Masses, may continue at 50% of building capacity. Saturday vigil Masses may continue on June 27, 2020 at 50% of building capacity. The number of Masses celebrated on Saturdays is to be determined by the pastor.
  • Public weekday Masses (Monday through Friday) may continue at 50% of building capacity. The number of Masses celebrated on weekdays is to be determined by the pastor.

Pastors Column

After the celebration of the 25th anniversary of my Priesthood Saturday the 12th of September, I took out time on Sunday afternoon to reflect on all that happened at Mass and the reception. All the while sitting in my office, I was looking at the beautiful art picture from Lindsey’s art class. It was so gorgeous to look at, and I could not let go of the kind words and compliments of the kids to me as they depicted all those in the artwork. What a joy to have that artwork with me and to place it in a place of honor. I now have something with me that I am going to brag with as people come by to visit with me. It captured for me the unhidden joy and interest of all of you my beloved friends here at St. Joseph. Your conspicuous excitement over the 25th of my Priesthood was noticed by all our visitors and deeply felt by me. THANK YOU, VERY MUCH.

A lot did go into the celebration of my anniversary. It was all possible first by the grace God and then by the loveliest instruments he has chosen to organize it all. Our very amiable and amazing business manager Cathy Stagner with the rest of the office staff, Esmeralda Nuñez, Nancy Martinez, Tara Bart, Lydia Diaz, Mr. Rosas did not spare even a moment of rest until they saw a wonderful celebration take place. I thank them and their families for their generosity and allowing that they use their precious family time to take care of me. Those who helped at the liturgy as well cannot escape anyone’s notice, the Deacons, the lectors, the altar servers, the ushers and of course Kristin Bittick and choir that treated our musical palates with the most melodious and devotion inspiring sounds.

At the reception, well attended as the Mass, we were treated with the delightful meal prepared by our own Sara Mallord. We had as well some delicious meal – ‘a taste of African Cuisine’ – thanks to my friends coming from African communities from other Parishes. Simply put, I had a memorable occasion. I must give shout out to Scott and Dina – the Rolens, Robert and Alma – the Alvas, the Wilsons – Robert and Delores, Paula Boyd, Lindsey rayers and gifts. May God reward you abundantly and may the celebration of my Priesthood remain a blessing to all of us, Amen.
