In line with the latest  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.

Anniversary of our Salesian Saints

Beginning the weekend of January 22nd and 23rd, Salesian Congregations and organizations around the world begin a year-long Double Jubilee Anniversary observance of the 400th Anniversary of the death of St. Francis DeSales and the 450th Anniversary of the birth of St. Jane DeChantal. The life and teachings of these two Saints are the foundation of the ministry of the Oblates of St. Francis DeSales who staff this parish. Throughout this coming year, we will highlight important events and dates in the lives of St. Francis and St. Jane to mark the Jubilee and to help us grow in our understanding and appreciation of these two Saints.

This week we mark the birthday of St. Jane DeChantal on January 23, 1572 and the feast day of St. Francis DeSales on January 24th, the day that marks his burial in Annecy, Francis in 1622.

May our celebration of these two Saints help us to live in the present moment where God’s grace is always found.

The Synod – The Pope is calling you!

Earlier this year Pope Francis called on the entire Church to begin a synod process. Synod is a Greek word meaning, “journeying together.” Bishop Luis Zarama of Raleigh is inviting everyone in our diocese, including those no longer affiliated with the Church, to provide feedback through an online questionnaire. Following the survey process, which begins this week, in-person meetings will be held throughout the diocese to help the Church hear the voices of the Holy Spirit and of its people.

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  are available in the office and on the website .  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.
