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.

SAFE ENVIRONMENT ANNOUNCEMENTThe Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City is committed to protecting children and young people.

NEXT SUNDAY, September 13, we will have a special collection 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. Please use the special envelope in the bulletin to make your donation.

The parish office will be closed on Monday, September 7, in observance of Labor Day. In case of emergency, please contact Saint George Catholic Church at 435-673-2604.
