We will officiate a service of Holy Eucharist at 9:00 am in-person and online. You have our full support to worship from home if you do not feel comfortable coming in person. We will continue to share the bulletin online also. If you do come in person, please be prepared to keep your distance and wear your mask for the duration of your time at church, sign a contact tracing list, and participate less verbally than usual (i.e. no congregational singing or reading). Sunday School will be hosted online at 10:30 am by ZOOM.
The following precautions are highlights, but not comprehensive of the measures taken to maintain as safe an environment as possible for Holy Communion:
- No physical passing of the peace or plates, etc.
- No distribution of wine or passing of the chalice.
- Only the celebrant priest will handle the vessels and elements for Communion with sanitized hands and a mask. Gifts will not be brought forward for presentation, but will be present at the altar already for the celebrant.
- Ushers will be trained to direct the congregation one pew at a time to receive Holy Communion in one kind (bread wafer), one person at a time in the center aisle. The receiver should sanitize their hands as provided, outstretch their arms from the space marked for the priest to drop the wafer into the hand. Once received, the communicant should return to their seat, remove mask, consume the sacrament, and then replace mask.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Pastor Katlin.
