2022 Liturgical Calendars: The new calendars are in! You may pick one up in the Narthex or in the office. 

COVID Precautions and the Omicron Variance: Bishop Benfield has strongly urged all congregations to mask through the whole service, including while singing. This variant is quickly becoming the predominate variant infecting people in our communities, including those of us who have been vaccinated. Vaccination does provide protection against severe illness but we need to do our part in protecting those around us by reducing the potential of its spread.
