Masking at St. Francis Xavier Parish
On July 27th, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that all wear masks in indoor public spaces, regardless of their vaccination status and age. The Missoula City-County Health Department also urges the pubic to wear masks. These are recommendations, not mandates.
Bishop Vetter has requested that all Catholic institutions in the diocese follow the guidelines of their local health department . Therefore, we are encouraging everyone to wear masks while inside the church when it is not possible to social distance.
The dispensation of the Sunday obligation to attend mass is still in effect for those who are ill, have underlying health issues, or are concerned about the spread of the Covid virus or other contagions.
The 10am Sunday Mass will continue to be live streamed.
Please note that all the priests of the parish have been vaccinated, and we encourage all the faithful to do likewise, according to the recommendations of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and directives of your personal healthcare providers..
Together as a community of faith we can work to lessen the personal and collective challenges of this pandemic.
C. Hightower, SJ
