Keeping the Parish Community Connected
Worship With Us | Sunday, September 19

Morning Light Service | 9:00 AM
In-Person at 64 Beacon Street or Virtual on Zoom

Join us for our weekly Morning Light service at 9 AM. We're excited to offer both in-person and virtual options starting this Homecoming Sunday!

For those who wish to continue to worship with us virtually, the Zoom link and service will remain the same. We'll open up Zoom at 8:50 for greetings, start the service promptly at 9:00, and a short "coffee hour" will follow the service, hosted by our musician Skip Lewan

If you would rather join us in-person for Morning Light, doors will open at the Little Chapel at 8:45 AM. Masks are required. Congregants will sign in for contact tracing purposes, and some pews have been removed to allow spacing between worshippers. 
Morning Prayer Service | 11:00 AM
In-person at 58 Tremont Street or Live-Streamed on YouTube
We are thrilled to worship together again inside our historic chapel for Homecoming this year!

For those who wish to worship with us in-person, doors open at 10:30 AM. Masks required. Worshippers will be asked to sign in for contact tracing purposes and masks are required. An usher will escort you to your pew and we ask that you remain in your pew for the rest of the time inside to maintain 3 feet apart from others. Prelude and live-streaming will start at 10:50 AM.

For those who wish to worship virtually, we are continuing to improve our live-streaming equipment and process. Join us on YouTube (link below) at 10:50 AM from the comfort of your own home. You can also find the link on our YouTube channel homepage or our website homepage.
COVID-Related Reminders
Just as a reminder, those who will be joining us for our first in-person worship services, masks will be required inside both Chapels at all times and attendees will be requested to sign in for contact tracing purposes. We also ask all to maintain at least 3 feet distance from those outside of your household.

Tomorrow we will send our final e-blast about Homecoming with more information so check your inboxes before Sunday. Regardless of how you choose to join us for Homecoming, virtually or in person, we are grateful to have you!

King's Chapel Memorial Project
Presentation On October 3
For the past several months members of the KC Memorial Project have been in communication with Mass Design Group, the firm which designed the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, in Montgomery Alabama, as well as the Gun Violence Memorial. Mass Design has strong ties to Boston as well as national and international experience in justice based design.
With the thought that Mass Design might be the best firm to engage to help us to move forward in our thinking as well as with the actual design work, we have asked them to make a public presentation to the KC membership outlining their experience with both physical and living memorials and including a discussion of how they might help us if they were to be engaged as consultants.
Their presentation is scheduled for October 3, either by Zoom or at a venue to be determined. Prior to this date we have also asked them to make a preliminary presentation to the members of the Memorial Committee so that we can preview the presentation and help them focus it on our specific concerns. This particular meeting will occur later this month. Once we finalize the program and meeting details we will share that information.
As we continue to move forward with this project we will provide updates and announcements as necessary. We continue to seek your prayers and your support as we do the difficult but also transformative work of acknowledging and learning from our history.
