Protocols and Worship Times:
MASS PROTOCOLS AND CURRENT INFORMATION: Per Bishop Oscar S. Solis of the Diocese of Salt Lake City, our current Mass protocols continue. Worshippers (except liturgical ministers serving in the sanctuary) MUST wear cloth face coverings upon entering the church until they depart. Masks must remain on the face throughout the whole Mass, except when receiving communion, and put back on afterward. Ushers will assist with seating required at six-foot distances. Saint Christopher’s will offer Mass for a maximum of 28 persons at each Mass. We celebrate Mass at 8:00 AM MST Monday through Saturday. Sunday Masses are celebrated at the 5:30 PM MST Saturday Vigil, and the 9:00 AM MST Mass on Sunday. 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. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. PLEASE NOTE: Families or groups of 4 or more are encouraged to arrive at least 20 minutes before Mass is scheduled to begin, so as to be seated together obeying the six-foot distance requirement with other worshippers.
NOTE: The above Mass information supersedes the schedules listed below.
Mass OR Sunday Celebration in the Absence of a Priest is held every Sunday at 9:00 AM MST.
Confessions can be heard before Sunday Mass from 8:15 – 8:45 AM MST.
Also join us to receive the Eucharist from Monday through Saturday at 8:00 AM MST.
Additionally, under our HOME page, please check CHURCH NEWS for special Mass times.
What is a Sunday Celebration in the Absence of a Priest (SCAP)?
“When a priest cannot be present for the celebration of Mass on the Lord’s day, it is of paramount importance that the parish or mission community still come together to celebrate the resurrection of the Lord… If, in the judgment of the diocesan bishop, it is not practical or possible for the community to participate in the celebration of Mass in a church nearby, they should assemble for Sunday worship in their own community under the leadership of the person whom the bishop and pastor has designated to lead them in prayer…” -Committee on Liturgy, United States Council of Catholic Bishops
The SCAP service is not a Mass, but does fulfill your Sunday obligation. Hosts consecrated by our priest are distributed during the SCAP. This service has been in effect since 1994 and was revised in 2009.
