Look at what's happening at Christ the Servant!


Sunday Liturgy

Christ the Servant continues to post the Saturday mass by Fr. Bob on facebook and YouTube (@christtheservant) at about 4:30 pm on Saturday. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl4CVB_eUB4ts51DxKyoiag The plan is to continue providing a Mass each week as long as necessary. The Mass will be posted at 4:30 pm Saturday, and remain available during the rest of the week.


Radio Broadcast of Mass

Even with the precautions being taken at mass, you may still feel it best to participate by listening to mass while being in your car. When mass is going on, you can listen to the audio on 88.3 FM. We found that the reception is best on the northern end of the original parking lot. (That's the side of the building the transmitter is on.) A communion minister will come outside the entrance doors for radio listeners to come receive communion. You must still observe use of face masks and social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be available for your use as well.


Anniversary Mass/Parish Picnic

Join us as we celebrate Christ the Servant's “30 + 1” Anniversary of the first mass in our Parish Building. Come worship as we mark this occasion on Sunday, September 19 at the 10 am mass.

Our Parish picnic will be on Sunday, September 19, 2021 from 12 to 4 pm on the Parish grounds. Due to Covid, it will be BYOP ( bring your own picnic lunch) and CTS will provide safely served cake and iced water. Other activites are also planned.

See more information on page 5 in the bulletin.

Peace and Social Justice
Fair Housing Seminar - September 28, 2021

Christ the Servant Peace and Social Justice Committee is sponsoring a free seminar on Fair Housing Past and Present on Tuesday, September 28th at 7:00 pm, at Christ the Servant Church. The guest speaker is Rachel Watson, Director of Outreach for Hope Fair Housing. Learn about the past and present status of fair housing conditions both nationally and locally. Housing discrimination is real, and it is happening right now. According to government estimates, more than four million instances of housing discrimination occur each year, though only 1% is reported (from Hope website).

Huge thank you

A HUGE thank you to all who are able to continue to support the parish financially during this difficult time! If your finances allow, please continue your alms giving as most parish costs are ongoing.

Your financial support is still needed for us to be able to meet the financial commitments of the parish. We still need to pay the mortgage, utilities, and payroll. We’ve adjusted the thermostat to use less electricity and gas, and salaried employees (diocese-wide) have taken a 1/3 reduction in salary for at least the month of April. Thank you to the many people who are continuing making contributions to the parish, either by mailing in your gifts or contributing online. To contribute online, click on the black and yellow “Donation” button near the upper right of the home page.
God will see us through this time, together.
