|After consulting with the Sr. Warden, I have decided to suspend in-person worship at Good Shepherd (effective immediately). The infection rate in Gloucester City is now 33.4 per 100K (next to Cape May county-which has a 52.5 rate- Gloucester City has the highest infection rate in the state of NJ). |
#1. There will be no Saturday evening service this evening
#2. The pulpit exchange with Fr. Todd Foster will be rescheduled
#3. Tomorrow’s service will be broadcast on the YouTube channel
#4. We will not resume in-person worship until the infection rate is below 25 per 100K (which is in harmony with what the Diocesan protocols recommend).
We were hoping to avoid the suspension of in-person worship, but I am convinced that the most prudent thing (in the face of the threat of the Delta variant and a dangerous rise in the infection rate in our county) is to do precisely that. Thanks for your understanding and for your prayers.
