MASS PROTOCOLS: Beginning Monday, May 4, St. Christopher’s will offer Mass for a maximum of 25 persons at each Mass. We will continue to celebrate Mass at 8:00 AM Monday through Saturday. Sunday Masses will be celebrated at the 5:30 PM Saturday Vigil, and on Sunday at 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM. All persons are required to wear a mask to attend but it may be removed when seated. 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; safe distancing guidelines of six feet between persons are even more important during these relaxed rules.
