Our diocese suggests that “congregations are strongly encouraged to keep in place safety protocols that assure maximum protection for all, especially safeguarding parishioners and clergy age 65 and older.” To that end, we require masks to be worn. Any individual who has tested positive for COVID-19, is feeling sick, or experiencing symptoms should stay home. We want to assure you that we are following the CDC, state, and diocesan safety guidelines, as well as guidelines from national choral organizations.

 

As of Palm Sunday this year, we are permitted to serve both bread and wine at Communion. Peter Browning and the lay eucharistic ministers will give directions during the service for doing this safely. During the 16 months of virtual and outdoor services, we upgraded our air filtration system to improve air quality within the church.  We will continue to livestream our Sunday morning and Thursday evening services for those who are not able to join in person. We will have a supply of masks available in the narthex for anyone who needs one. We will continue to make hand sanitizer available.

 

All who are vaccinated may shake hands or hug if this feels right. If you are not vaccinated, please continue the elbow bumps.

 

Our Covid exile has been a long journey. We continue to value safety and to be as flexible as we can in the path toward a new normal. We will update these guidelines as Covid-19 Community levels change. For our full policy on masking click here.
