Dear Saint Joseph Parishioners:
I was notified today that an individual who was at the parish facility but did not attend Mass on Sunday, October 24, 2020 has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual is receiving the appropriate medical attention.
Following diocesan protocols, I immediately notified the local health department and our diocesan officials to make them aware of the situation.
Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and diocesan guidelines, the spaces occupied by this individual were closed for an airing out and were thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
Out of care and concern for every staff member and parishioner, I urge you to contact your primary health care provider immediately if you feel ill.
Please join me in praying for this individual and all who are affected by COVID-19 at this time.
Yours in Christ,

Reporting Child Sexual Abuse and Sexual Harassment
The Diocese of Richmond encourages individuals to report abuse directly to law enforcement authorities by calling the Attorney General’s Clergy Abuse Hotline at 1(833) 454-9064. In addition, we place no deadlines or time limits on those who contact the diocese to report the sexual abuse of minors by priests, deacons, and or other personnel.
After first contacting the civil authorities, in a commitment to support and facilitate healing, individuals who have been sexually abused by a cleric, religious, employee, or volunteer of the Diocese of Richmond are then encouraged to contact the confidential Victim’s Assistance Reporting 24 Hour Number 1-877-887-9603 or Director of Safe Environment 804-622-5203 or by email at [email protected].
