Christ the King Re-Opens!
CHRIST THE KING
NOW SET TO RE-OPEN
This is just a word of thanks, in advance, to that small army of volunteers who have prepared for our “re-opening” for Masses this weekend. The church has been completely sanitized. And we have volunteer crews (who have assembled all the necessary supplies) for repeated cleaning of the church following all our weekend Masses. So, thanks to those family crews who have volunteered to do this.
In addition, our lectors, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion and servers have been prepared in advance as well.
I will offer the customary 8:00 am Mass on Saturday morning and all our weekend Masses (Saturday, 4 pm; Sunday, 7:30 am, 9:00 am & 11 am).
Some area parishes determined they could not re-open this weekend because they felt they could not ready themselves in such a way as to abide by the Governor’s (and Bishop’s) Phase One plan. Thanks to our many volunteers
we will be able to do so
and I am grateful.
Just a couple of other reminders…
receive Holy Communion at Mass
…a volunteer will apply sanitizer to your hands. Rub it quickly and then immediately proceed to either Msgr. Sullivan or either of the two extraordinary ministers on the sides. You can then remove your mask and receive Holy Communion in your hand. After placing the host on your tongue please put your mask back on as you return to your pew.
We need to keep the Communion line flowing. Also, markings on the floor indicate social distancing.
wear your mask
throughout Mass. During those parts of the Mass that I am not speaking I will be wearing my mask. During Holy Communion the extraordinary ministers and I will be wearing masks.
can be placed in the basket as you enter the foyer. There will
taken at the Offertory.
Other instructions will be given during the Mass.
(outdoors, in the rear of the church) have been moved to
1:00 to 2:00 pm
to enable me more time to prepare for the 4:00 pm Mass.
Thank you all for your continuing support and God bless you!
Msgr. Thomas Sullivan
