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.

All Souls Remembrance
Remembrance Photos: Oct 30-Nov 2
All Souls Mass: November 2, 8:30 am

During the month of November, we will remember our departed family members and friends. Submitted names will be included on a “Our Beloved Dead” poster during the month of November (updated weekly), and then in the parish bulletin.
There will be recognition of our beloved dead, particularly the ones buried from Christ the Servant this past year at the masses that weekend, and the actual All Souls Mass will take place at 8:30 am on Tuesday, November 2.
All are invited to bring a photo of a deceased loved one to be placed on a table near the piano the weekend of October 30/31. Please remember to take your photo home with you after mass, or you may leave it through the All Souls liturgy on November 2, and take it home then.
More information can be found on page 2 in the bulletin.


Electronics Recycling Event

Mark your calendars for November 20, 2021 8:30-11:30 am. Event will take place in the parking lot.


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.
