No priest means fewer Masses at church

St. Charles Catholic Church in Bayport temporarily cancels some services


BAYPORT – Sometimes even churches have to take a summer break.

That’s the case at St. Charles Catholic Church, where they have canceled Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Masses this week and next week while the Rev. Mark Juettner is away, said church volunteer Charlotte Robledo.

But Robledo stressed that St. Charles will hold Masses Friday, Saturday and Sunday while Juettner is out.

It was decided to cancel the mid-week Masses after a substitute priest could not be found, Robledo said. St. Charles announced the cancelled Masses in its church bulletin last week, she added.

St. Charles will resume its regular Mass schedule when Juettner returns, Robledo said.

"Father Juettner will be back. We will have Mass every day," she said.
