Prayer for Lent: Dear God, just as the rains from heaven prepare the lands to flourish, we know that your blessings are bestowed upon us. In this season of preparation, help us grow closer to you as we make time for prayer, solitude, and reflection. Make ready our ears to hear your loving call amidst the stressful and hurried days that make up the storms of our life. Loving Father, we know that we do not face such days alone; your divine strength is our unfailing aid as we await the joy of the Easter season. AMEN -2015, Creative Communications for the Parish, Fenton MO
See Fr. Rick’s Pastoral messages on the opposite side of the bulletin for our Easter schedule. Remember that all schedules are Covid contingent.
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.
