MASS DURING THE WEEK
MONDAY – SATURDAY
CONFESSIONS BY APPOINTMENT
MASS PROTOCOLS 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 masks upon entering the church until they depart. Masks will remain on the face throughout the whole Mass except when receiving communion. Saint Christopher’s will offer Mass for up to 28 persons at each Mass, with seating at six-foot distances required. 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.
This weekend we will be accepting donations for Diocesan Priests’ Retirement. Priests provide pastoral care throughout the Diocese of Salt Lake City well beyond the usual retirement age. These donations will help pay the monthly living expenses of retired priests, who no longer rely on parishes to support them after active ministry. The collection provides partial funding for the diocese to utilize in caring for and providing the necessary resources to our diocesan retired priests. Place your donation in the extra collection basket at the back of the church.
WE MADE IT!! 2020 DIOCESAN DEVELOPMENT DRIVE as of August 31, 2020: Goal: $8,725 / Total Pledged: $9,303.75 / Total Paid: $8,753.75. Number of Donors: 15. Parish Families: 48. Thank you to our donors!

OPEN DOOR SATURDAY is back! Every first and third Saturday from 10:00 AM until Noon. If you know someone who may be interested in coming back to the Catholic Church, or who is simply interested in what we are about, please spread the word that we would be more than happy to speak with them! Join us again on Saturday, September 19.
NEXT WEEKEND, Pope Francis has asked us to support the Pontifical Collection for the Holy Land, to help Christians in the Holy Land maintain holy structures and do vital ministry in an area where Christians still experience significant persecution. Your support helps the church minister in parishes, provide Catholic schools, offer religious education, and provide humanitarian aid to refugees. With your contribution, you become an instrument of peace and join with Catholics around the world in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land. Because of our disrupted Holy Week schedules, Pope Francis has asked us to take this collection in September in place of the customary Good Friday outreach. Thank you for your usual generosity!!
