Please note: Per the Episcopal Bishops of Massachusetts, it is strongly recommended for virtual services to continue until further notice. We remain hopeful that in-person worship will resume soon.
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, or diabetes patients, or have an autoimmune disorder, you are strongly urged to avoid attending large groups, including worship.
* During worship: We will not perform handshakes, elbow bumps, or other touching during the Peace, there will be in-one-kind Communion, and no passing of the offering plate (to be placed in a designated area), etc.
Until further notice, and per strong diocesan recommendations - Bible study will be on hiatus.
We understand these circumstances are unique and uncertain, but we must be vigilant in keeping everyone’s best interest in mind, while we seek God’s comfort and protection.
As this situation changes, we will keep you posted - your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
