COVID-19 Safety and Precautions
Here are the restrictions we will be operating under, and how we are going to handle them, please note per diocesan guidelines, none of these are optional and all must be followed:
You will need to make a reservation to attend the 9:30 AM service. No more than 50 people may be in the church - this includes the clergy. We are required by the diocese to keep a list of everyone who attends in the event there is exposure to the virus. The balcony will be reserved for families in the same household of four or more.
Because of the restriction of only 50 people in the church, the altar party will consist of an acolyte, Deacon Susie, and myself. Choir remains suspended. We will ask for volunteers to read from each service. If no one is willing to read, the clergy will step in.
Everyone must wear masks.
Receiving the chalice will not be permitted. Communion will be in one kind - host only, for safety reasons.
Passing of the peace remains suspended.
There will be no social time or receptions at this time due to social distancing and health reasons.
Funerals and baptisms are now permitted, but will follow the same restrictions.
