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.

Peace and Social Justice
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). See page 3 in the bulletin for details.
