4. When you arrive, leave a space on either side of your car when you park. Wear a mask when you get out of your car.

5. Follow signs to “Sign-In Table” where you will get your temperature checked. Masks, hand sanitizer and Book of Common Prayer will be available if you do not have them. You are required to wear a mask over your nose and mouth or a plexiglass face shield that covers your whole face the entire time.

6. You will be directed to your seat.

7. After the service, you will be asked to leave the worship area in a specific way. Please follow those directions. Be patient as slower parishioners may be ahead of you when leaving.

Starting October 4th, the Virtual Service will be at 8 am!!

 

  • Check in to zoom or YouTube prior to the 8:00 am start time.

  • If there is a weather cancellation for the outdoor, in-person 10:00 am service, it is likely the virtual service will be held at 10:00 am instead of 8:00 am for that day. We will do our best to notify people of this occurrence.
  • The current practice of holding church using zoom, Facebook and YouTube streams will continue at 8:00 am only. Music will continue to be provided virtually.

 

 

Modified Communion:

  • Kenn will advise parishioners at the 8:00 am virtual and in the 10:00 am in-person services on the appropriate way to experience communion at home with the blessed bread.

Recovery Ministries

The Rev. Anne McKeever, Diocesan Recovery Facilitator

Isolation is perilous for people in recovery. We learn that our sobriety depends upon keeping connected to sober people, being accountable to others, being of service to others.

Some people in recovery attend one or more meetings a day. Many people attend several meetings a week.

With quarantines, self-isolation, and lockdowns spreading in response to the COVID-19 virus, and with many in-person support groups ceasing to meet as ordered, other sinister viruses can spread as well: powerlessness, loneliness, anxiety, fear, shame, all the hurts and harms that fuel addictive behaviors.

As our Diocesan Recovery facilitator, I’ve begun compiling this collection of online/virtual recovery support resources. It’s just the beginning. Please share with me resources you find, too.

Please share these resources with your congregations and friends. Learn who might need frequent check-ins by phone. Let’s work together to stay as healthy as possible in these tender times.

  • Rev. Anne’s article and curated list of resources are available here: conta.cc/2wr45Yj
  • Here is an additional article from Episcopal News Service: Episcopal churches reluctantly close their doors to 12 step meetings
