We have adopted safety protocols set forth by the Diocese, and we ask the following of parishioners:
* If you feel unwell in any way, please do not attend church.
* If you are in what is considered a “high-risk” group (i.e., chemotherapy, heart disease, respiratory, diabetes, etc.), or have an autoimmune disorder, you are strongly urged to avoid attending large groups, including worship.
* During the service: We will not perform handshakes, elbow bumps, or other touching during the Peace. Communion may be altered as necessary. And, the offering plate will not be passed, but placed in a designated area.
We understand this situation is unique and uncertain, but St. John's is determined to stay vigilant with everyone’s safety in mind, while we seek God’s comfort and protection.
As circumstances change, we will keep you posted - your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
