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.

FINANCIAL REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER 12-13, 2020:  Offertory $1,043 /  Donations Mail $40 / Renovations & Improvements $115 / Priests’ Retirement (20-2209) $1,175  =  $2,373

THIS 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 accept donations in September in place of the customary Good Friday outreach. Thank you for your usual generosity!!

OPEN DOOR SATURDAY IS BACK!   Every first and third Saturday from 10:00 AM until Noon. If you missed meeting with us this weekend, join us on Saturday, October 3rd. 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.

PRAY FOR THE SICK: Please offer your prayers and your special intentions for:  Barbara Burgess, Roberta Champlin, Denise Drinkwater, Nancy Goebel, Sandra Kirkland, Laura Klina, Patti Lindh, Louann Marocchi, Tom McDonnell, Aileen Norton, Jim Norton, Jim Prag, Michael Ramirez, George Reese, Lucy Sanders, Linda & Kenny Spencer, Laurel Steele,  Peter Stephan, Linda Tarrant, Barbara Walk, Debbie Wentz, those who are ill with Covid-19 and those caring for them, and for our Service men and women and their families.

The talents that we each have been blessed with can only be developed if we use them fully to benefit the lives of others as well as our own. Karen Casey, The Promise of a New Day
