In Church Mass with the Community

Let Us Support One Another and Do Our Part As Best We Can

May the Grace of God and the fullness of his blessing be on your families during this time.

Balancing the physical, public health precautions deemed necessary with the spiritual good of the faithful, Christ the King Parish resumes limited opportunities for our faithful to return to our churches while maintaining the necessary, required public health precautions present in the CDC Guidelines as the Diocese gradually and safely moves toward the full restoration of Catholic spiritual and sacramental life.  The Post‑Pandemic Parish Task Force of Pastors (P4) has developed “Directives” that all parishes are to observe for participation at “in Church” public Masses and sacramental administrations throughout the Diocese of Trenton.

The following are the procedures and requirements Christ the King Parish is to follow in order that we may offer the sacraments and for the faithful to participate in them. All these norms will help us to protect you and all other members of our community. I hope we can count on your patience and collaboration.  

My dear brothers and sisters of Christ the King Parish, I would like to announce the great news of once again being allowed to celebrate mass in our churches at Star of the Sea and Holy Trinity, with a limited public celebration of the mass and sacraments beginning with the following dates:

“In-Church” public weekend Masses will begin with the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, June 13-14, 2020.

We are allowed to use 30% of the capacity of our church:  At Star of the Sea we are allowed the maximum of 150 persons (100% capacity is 496) and in Holy Trinity we are allowed 70 persons (100% capacity is 240).

“In-Church” public weekday Masses will begin on Monday, June 8, 2020.

We will be allowed to have only 25 persons in the church building.

for our Revised Mass Schedules beginning June 8, 2020
