Mass with Extra Precautions
On Sunday, Aug. 16, St. Joseph, Crestline, Ohio will have their first 10:30 am Sunday "Mass with Extra Precautions" in the Convocation Center on the St. Joseph, Crestline campus. The huge size of the Convocation Center should prevent over-crowding and a social distancing problem that we have run into in the past and should allow a seat for all who wish to attend! 
P.S. (There is AC in the Convocation Center)

Father Chris will be live streaming Mass on Facebook, for anyone who would like to pray at home. They can watch the parish Facebook page for dates and times. Anyone can access this. It isn’t necessary to have a Facebook account.

Parish History Book.

Copies of this keepsake edition are
