Trust in the
ABUNDANCE of GOD
Today’s reading from Matthew (Chapter 14) is the story of Jesus’ multiplication of the loaves and fish, an account that appears in each of the four Gospels. Surrounded by a crowd of followers seated on the grass, Jesus takes five loaves and two fish, says a blessing, and feeds the multitudes, with enough left over to fill twelve baskets. This miracle story is an anticipation of the Eucharist in which we are fed by the abundant grace of God.

New Outdoor Mass Schedule
In compliance with State of California, County of Los Angeles, and Archdiocese guidelines, indoor Masses have been suspended until further notice. We are happy to report that St. Joseph the Worker has outdoor Masses in the School pavilion area.
We now must have a record, for the purpose of contact tracing, of who attends each Mass (weekends and weekdays) in case an individual tests positive for COVID-19. Since initiating this procedure, we have revised the tracing form to make it more useful. Please download, print, and complete the New Contact Tracing Form and bring it with you to Mass. If you cannot print the form, one will be provided to you when you arrive.

Supporting Your Parish
During this challenging time, please continue to support your parish. Our parish must continue to pay ongoing expenses (e.g., salaries, insurance, utilities) during these difficult circumstances. While we understand that everyone’s situation is different, we encourage you to continue your financial support for St. Joseph the Worker.
