HOW TO PASS THE PEACE AT THIS TIME
As we have a number of people for whom close contact is still not a good idea,
we will continue to pass the Peace with a solemn bow.
The Passing of the Peace should be managed reverently and with no talking other than the authorized responses in the missal. If someone offers to physically Pass the Peace it is fine to fold your hands and bow instead of shaking hands.
Please do what is safe for your situation.
We know that some people are not yet able to participate in church in person.
The absent members of the congregation will be remembered in prayer.
