SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT
“If God is for us, who can be against us?” Perhaps the better questions would be: Are we for God? It is understandable that those who see themselves as Christians, assume that God is on their side and therefore they must be in the right. The Pharisees also thought this way but they were roundly criticized by Jesus. We are not all knowing and just – that is God. We are trying to learn how to be more like God, our Father. We need to develop a humble spirit and an open heart so that we may learn how to be on God’s side rather than insisting that God support our ideas and plans.
To you will I offer sacrifice of thanksgiving, and I will call upon the name of the Lord.

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 to arrive 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.
