Mass on Mondays At the last Marshfield Deanery Clergy Meeting, the six priests of the Deanery decided that they would take turns offering the Monday morning Mass offered at St. John the Baptist Parish. This would give all the priests of the Deanery the ability to take off most Mondays--the traditional and most convenient day for a priest to take off - while removing the weekly burden from the priests assigned to St. John’s. Since people from all of the deanery parishes utilize the Monday Mass at St. John’s, all of the deanery priests felt is was only fair to share the responsibility of offering the Mass.

At the last Marshfield Deanery Clergy Meeting, the priests of the deanery decided to add Confessions at Our Lady of Peace Parish in Marshfield on the third Friday of each month at 6:00 p.m. to complement the First Friday Confessions at St. John’s. Both Father Robertson from Our Lady of Peace Parish and Father Kitzhaber from Sacred Heart Parish in Marshfield will be hearing the Third Friday Confessions.
