A Note from Bishop Johnston
This week, Bishop James V. Johnston Jr. sent a letter to the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph regarding the general dispensation from the holy obligation to participate in Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation.
“As circumstances have significantly improved due to the availability of vaccines and other factors, I withdraw the general dispensation from the holy obligation to participate in Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation effective June 1, 2021, in advance of the Feast of Corpus Christi June 5-6, 2021. Those with serious health concerns, pre-existing conditions, or who are caregivers to the vulnerable continue to have the grant of a particular dispensation.”
All Catholics in the Diocese who are no longer dispensed are encouraged to return to Mass, and “Come Home to Communion”.

A Year of St. Joseph
In December, Pope Francis released a new Apostolic Letter “Patris Corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”) recalling the 150th anniversary of the declaration of St. Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. The Holy Father also proclaimed a “Year of St. Joseph” from December 8, 2020, to December 2021.
Holy Family is excited to spend the coming months celebrating St. Joseph as part of the patronage of our parish, growing in our understanding of this great saint, and living our faith under the example of St. Joseph’s virtues.
Check out the Year of St. Joseph page weekly for St. Joseph prayers, quotes from saints on St. Joseph, monthly themes based on the virtues of St. Joseph, and exploring St. Joseph through sacred art.
There will also be various events throughout the year including a study of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter, St. Joseph Feast Day activities, parish Clean-Up Day on the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, and much more. Stay tuned! St. Joseph, Pray for Us!
