It is not sufficient for me

to love God

if I do not love my neighbor.

MASS PROTOCOLS:  As of May 23, 2020, 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 when entering and exiting the Mass, but it may be removed when seated at a safe six-feet distance from other attendees. As per our most recent guidelines from the Salt Lake City Diocese, it is recommended that masks be worn throughout the Mass for optimal safety. 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. Please consult our website or call the parish office with any questions. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

There are many more people in need during the pandemic, so thank you for your generosity. If you would like to make a monetary donation instead, please do so separately from our other collections.
