From Fr Brent
The times, they are a changing!
It has been an eventful 24 hours in the life of the COVID-19 pandemic, or at least in our collective response to it. As of yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control lifted many (if not most) pandemic restrictions on those who have been fully vaccinated. Changes in mask protocols for fully vaccinated people and the state’s removal of limits to the size of indoor gatherings will impact our lives in countless ways, not least our common life at St. Francis by the Sea.
Your vestry and key liturgical leaders will confer over the next few days to determine what our reopening will look like in light of these changes. Rest assured we will be careful and cautious in our decision making. That said, it sure does look like our regathering process be a lot easier than it might have been. Hallelujah! Stay tuned.
In the meantime, if you have been vaccinated, on behalf of a grateful community, THANK YOU! And if you haven’t, from both a public health and a moral, Christian-concern-for-neighbor perspective, please join the ranks of those doing the right thing and get your shot.
