Response to COVID-19, Coronavirus

February 17, 2023

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange continue to follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, local health agencies, workplace safety regulators, Diocesan guidelines and other reputable data to navigate the Coronavirus pandemic with appropriate safety measures.


The following practices represent our efforts to provide for the health and safety of all who live and work on the St. Joseph Center (SJC) campus, as well as the health and safety of you, our beloved, extended Family of Joseph.

Attendees, guests, visitors to St. Joseph Center must follow requirements including: be symptom free of COVID or other cold and flu symptoms, or wear a mask indoors in Regina Residence and Sacred Heart Chapel at all times and physical distance when possible.

  1. St. Joseph Center is open for group bookings.  Guests must follow requirements stated above.

  2. Individual appointments are possible if requirements are met.  Guests must follow requirements stated above.

  3. Liturgical services in Sacred Heart Chapel are OPEN to visitors on Sunday at 9:00 am, and Monday – Friday at 11:00 am.  Guests must follow requirements stated above.  The schedule may periodically change due to private events such as funerals.  For the Sacred Heart Chapel Schedule, please visit:

  4. Our community of care at Regina Residence follows even more rigorous visitor guidelines.  Visits are allowed.

  5. We reserve the right to adapt, change or modify our safe practices without notice, in an effort maintain the safest environment as COVID-19 and other illnesses continue to evolve.

We began our safe practices and protocols in mid-March of 2020 to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our safety efforts will continue, adapting periodically as needed, and remain in place until further notice.

We believe that these measures are for the common good of our own community and the larger communities in which we live and serve.  We will revise actions based on reputable data.

Let us continue praying for the health and well-being of all in our Earth community, including those suffering the effects of the virus and all who minister to them.  We hold you in our thoughts and prayers.
