Public Masses at St. Joseph to Resume Sunday June 14

Thanks be to God.

St. Joseph Cathedral announces with great joy that both daily and Sunday public Masses will resume starting June 14.

  • Public Sunday Masses will be celebrated at 9 and 11:30 a.m.
  • Public Daily Masses beginning June 15 will be celebrated at 12:07 p.m. only

This is the first step in a phased reopening, and we hope to return to our full schedule of Masses soon. More details will follow as we receive guidance from the Diocese in implementing our proposed plan.

Bishop Robert McElroy has noted: “I will continue to dispense all Catholics in the Diocese of San Diego from the obligation to attend Mass for the foreseeable future. All of us must urge sick or especially vulnerable members of our communities to refrain from coming to Mass.”

St. Joseph Cathedral will continue to offer online streaming of Masses.

In compliance with Governor Gavin Newsom’s guidelines, the maximum capacity for Sunday Mass will be 100 inside the Church and 50 in the auditorium. Maximum capacity for daily Masses will be 100 inside the Church. All retired persons and those whose schedules allow are encouraged to attend Mass during the week, reserving space on Sunday for those who cannot attend on other days. Please note:

  • Face masks, the use of hand sanitizers and social distancing will be required.

We will need a great deal of assistance to safely and reverently celebrate the Mass. If you are interested in volunteering to help, contact
