Masking at St. Francis Xavier Parish
On July 27th, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) started to recommend fully vaccinated individuals, along with unvaccinated individuals wear masks in indoor public spaces. The Missoula City-County Health Department has started urging the pubic to start wearing masks again. These are recommendations, not mandates.
Bishop Vetter has requested that all Catholic institutions in the diocese follow their local health department guidelines. Therefore, we are encouraging both vaccinated and unvaccinated to wear masks while inside the church when not able to social distance. This encouragement continues to be grounded in the Honor System. If you or your family are uncomfortable attending Mass while some do not wear masks, the dispensation of Sunday obligation is still in effect. Sunday Mass will continue to be live streamed at 10 am.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and care for your parish community.
