CURRENT MASS PROTOCOLS CONTINUE:  Per Diocesan policy in accordance with current public health recommendations, the people (except liturgical ministers serving in the sanctuary) must wear cloth face masks upon entering the church until they depart. Masks will remain on the face throughout the whole Mass except while receiving communion. Saint Christopher will offer Mass for up to 28 persons at each Mass, with seating at six-foot distances required. Groups of 4 or more worshippers are asked toarrive at least 20 minutes before Mass begins, to be seated per distancing protocols. 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. Please consult our website or call the parish office with any questions. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
