Note from Father Phil Regarding Parish Covid Protocols
Going forward,with the guidelines of the CDC and Diocese of NJ we will observe the following adaptations to our policy.
10 am: masking is optional (nothing changed)
8 am: Masks will be worn by altar party when consecrating and distributing Holy Communion.
Members of the congregation are expected to remain at discrete distances when gathering in the sanctuary and when coming forward for Communion.
Note: the wearing of masks is appropriate and necessary for some of those in our community and we respect and honor everyone.
Also note: we have never had a single instance of community spread throughout this now-ending pandemic. Your priest chooses to be vaccinated and boosted with all available vaccinations including the seasonal flu and others. Our church is one of the safest arenas to attend public gatherings and has been for the past 2 1/2 years.
