Parish Prayer Concerns

For the Church, and particularly for the clergy, staff, and people of Grace Church, that we may be signs of Christ’s light for all who have lived in darkness, of hope for all who know pain and suffering, and of love for all who have been rejected. For those who are confined to their homes, and those who are separated from loved ones or from their parish families. For all who are in need of our prayers, whether because of illness, injury, poverty, loss, persecution or uncertainty, that God will grant them relief, healing and hope. For all who have died, and all who mourn.
Weekday Visits to Grace

To insure your safety and maintain the workplace standards established by the Department of Health, we ask you to let us know ahead of time when you will be stopping by. When you visit please use only the Clergy Door, which is the first door on your right in the Hicks Street courtyard. Sign the Visitors Log at the door (should we need to do any contact tracing), sanitize your hands and, as always, wear a mask.

To minimize traffic, particularly while children are at school, please refrain from moving through the Parish Hall. The restroom at the back of the sanctuary is available for your use. We thank you!
