In line with the latest State and Diocesan guidelines, all pews may now be occupied with no attendance limit.  Wearing face masks is now a personal option and no longer mandatory.  Those who feel uncomfortable being inside the building under  the new guidelines are invited to remain outside, where  the audio portion of Mass will be broadcast and Communion will be distributed. Please be aware that Bishop Zarama, Diocese of Raleigh, continues to dispense the faithful from their Sunday obligation, especially the  elderly, those sick, those with pre-existing health conditions or other vulnerable people.

We pray that the Covid virus continues its retreat and that our parishioners and visitors remain in good health.

Weather Alerts

Dare County Weather Policy’s

The Church will be closed and all activities canceled if a LOCAL State of Emergency is declared by Dare County or the Town of Kitty Hawk that includes mandatory evacuations or restrictions or prohibitions on travel in Kitty Hawk. Never put yourself at risk of accident or physical harm to come to Church in dangerous conditions, even if a delay or emergency has not been announced. We have been assured by the Diocese of Raleigh that the Catholic faithful are not obligated to attend Mass when prevented by unsafe travel conditions.

Since our new inclement weather policy governing closures and cancellations will now be tied to County and Municipality States of Emergency, we urge all parishioners to sign up for County Alerts.


 Registration forms for next year are available in the office and on the website and due back by August 1, 2021.  Please call Kerri Engley at 252.261.4700 with questions.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word Program

Our Children’s Liturgy of the Word Program meets on most Sundays throughout the school year at Holy Redeemer by the Sea. We do not yet have a date for beginning this ministry this Fall due to the restrictions in place for COVID 19.
