NEW OPPORTUNITY - Communion at home
(Pick up or Delivery available)
The Bishop has given us permission to deliver pre-consecrated wafers to parishioners, who for safety reasons must continue to worship at home.

This means that while you are watching the live-stream at home, you can receive communion (in one kind) at the same time as everyone who is worshiping in-person.

Below is a link to a sign-up sheet for those interested in picking up (or having someone deliver) a supply of wafers (enough for the Sundays from All Saints Sunday until Christmas Eve).

Pick-up date: Sat., October 31 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm
At F.D. Johnson entryway (17 Clark Street).

Note: We have been given strict guidelines regarding how to prepare the packets of wafers including the need for handwashing, gloves, and masks. We also ask that you plan now for where you keep your supply so that the sacrament is handled with respect and reverence.

Are you interested in joining our Tech Ministry?
Since the shut-down in March we have been live-streaming our 10:00 am service. It started with just a cell phone on a tripod. Now we have special live-streaming equipment, a camera installed, and new sound equipment. Alex Miglio has spent hours helping us to improve the stream and setting up the new equipment. We are now ready to expand the team so that both Alex and JT can take some Sundays off from running the equipment.

Are you interested in being trained? Please reach out to Cheryl and we will arrange for a one-on-one with either Alex or JT to learn how the equipment works. You can reach Cheryl at
In-person Worship continues this Sunday - Oct. 11
Once again, we are offering the opportunity for in-person worship this week. Space is limited in-person due to social distancing requirements, so reservations are required. Follow the link below to reserve a spot. Please be in touch with the Parish Office if you encounter any difficulty in making a reservation. We know the link from the E-news did not work last week. We have checked to be sure the link is good, but if you ever encounter any difficulties, you can always visit the website at to find the link.

Some important instructions:
  • Please monitor your health and those of your family members. If you are having any symptoms consistent with Covid-19 please participate from home. Check for the most recent list of possible symptoms here.
  • Masks will be required during the worship service.
  • Bathrooms are available on a limited basis (emergencies only).
  • Enter the F.D. Johnson entryway (the entrance on Clark Street).
  • Exit the Common Street doors (the red doors).
  • While in the building, please follow the signs and instructions from our ushers. Thank you!
  • Our services will continue to be live-streamed for those worshiping at home. While the cameras are mostly focused on the clergy, you may appear on the live-stream when you receive communion.

We are grateful to the Worship Advisory Committee and the Vestry who worked with us to prepare for this next phase. We will continue to meet with the Worship Advisory Committee to fine-tune what we doing in Phase 2 and prepare for the subsequent phases.

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Cheryl and Paul via the church email:
