The Vestry held a special meeting and decided to approve a proposal to resume “in-person” worship beginning during Holy Week. The decision was difficult (every member of the Vestry expressed ambivalence: a desire to resume in-person worship but also a deep concern for the health and safety of every member of the parish) and it was not unanimous. But it is the decision and we move forward “Joyfully, Hopefully and CAREFULLY“. It is important that parishioners remember three things:
#1. The protocols that were established back in November will continue to be maintained (masks; social distancing; no congregational singing and the distribution of the host only in the pews)
#2. It will be necessary to pre-register for every service and a maximum attendance of 40 will be permitted (this number includes the Celebrant; Deacon; Lector; organist and ushers).
#3. No one should feel obligated to attend just because in-person worship will be resumed. We will continue to “live stream” all services using the Zoom platform (we are working to upgrade the quality of our presentation with the purchase of new “hardware”).
“In-person” worship will also resume for Saturday, 5:30pm and Sunday, 10:00am Services. A FlockNote to pre-register will be sent out each Thursday of the week. Deadline for registering will be Friday, 12 Noon for that week.
