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.

NEXT WEEK we will accept donations for the Retirement Fund for Religious. Help our elders! In good times and bad, senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests have dedicated themselves to service and acts of mercy. Today, they pray for an aching world. Yet years of serving for little or no pay have left their religious communities without enough retirement savings. Your gift to the Retirement Fund for Religious helps provide medications, nursing care, and other necessities. Please be generous.
