MASS PROTOCOL UPDATES AS OF JULY 10, 2020: Per Diocesan policy, in accord with current public health recommendations, the people (except liturgical ministers serving in the sanctuary) must wear cloth face coverings (masks) upon entering the church until they depart. Masks will remain on their face throughout the whole Mass except when receiving communion. Seating at six-foot distances is required. Saint Christopher’s will offer Mass for up to 28 persons at each Mass. Please note that any Mass that you attend during the week will satisfy your Sunday obligation. As always, the greatest concern is for each person’s health and safety, thus it is up to each person to make the decision that is best for them and the community. There will be no gathering before or after Mass. Please consult our website or call the parish office with any questions. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

TODAY, we are accepting donations for the Retirement Fund for Religious. “Every dollar makes a difference in covering our expenses,” says a Trappist abbot. Hundreds of U.S. religious communities struggle to provide for aging members because most senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests served for little pay. Your gift helps these communities bridge the gap, offering support for medications, nursing care, and other necessities. Please be generous.

FINANCIAL REPORT FOR JULY 26, 2020:  Offertory $1,115 / Donations Mail $85 / Renovations & Improvements $45 /  Church in Africa collection (20-2210) $20  = Total: $1,265.

June 2020: Income $18,614.60 – Expenses $9,556.39 = $9,058.21 Difference. (Income includes special $5,376.96 donations for rectory renovations and $3,136.70 in related expenses)

From the Office of Safe Environment: The Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City is committed to the protection of children and young people.

In addition, if the alleged abuser is an employee or volunteer of the diocese or the alleged abuse occurs on diocesan property, call the Diocese of Salt Lake City Office of Safe Environment at     801-328-8641.
