Reopening for MassReopening for Mass at St. Charles will occur sometime after Multnomah County enters Phase 2. This will allow for a greater number of people to attend. Strict conditions will still apply: physical distancing, masking, sanitizing, no singing, no Communion Cup, no Exchange of Peace, and more. We will continue to offer the Zoom Service for those who are not yet ready to worship in person. In the meantime, if you wish to attend a weekday Mass, contact Leif at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will put you in touch with a neighboring parish.
