OCtober 4th

Beginning Sunday, October 4, we will begin to gather as a church family for a service of Holy Eucharist at 10:00 a.m. Reservations will be necessary, so please read the detail below.

 

The Sunday morning service has been on hiatus since mid-March due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. The Bishop had originally asked all the congregations to halt gatherings until plans could be put in place to assure a safe environment for all worshippers. Over the last several weeks, we have “put our toes in the water” with brief services on Sunday evenings and Thursday noon Eucharists with Unction.

 

We are now ready to take the next step.  Our parishioners have expressed a desire to gather once again for the Eucharist.

 

Some key details for the service: 

  • Reservations for the service must be made in advance.  You may reserve seats by either phoning the church office and leaving a message (251 943-2173) or by emailing the church at saintpaulsfoleyoffice@gmail.com.  Please mention the number of people you will bring with you.
  • The maximum attendance for the service will be 45. Reservations beyond that number will not be accepted, but we are open to scheduling an earlier Sunday service if our attendance indicates that such a service is needed in coming Sundays. People from the same household will be seated together.
  • Wearing of masks will be required, as will social distancing.
  • Communion will be in one-kind (the bread) and will be distributed one person at-a-time at the altar gate.  The bread will be in a small paper cup, making this communion “touch free.”
  • Passing of the peace will be virtual and non-physical – with a wave or a nod.
  • The Bishop has asked that no singing be done.  Music will be on the organ or piano.
  • Ushers will seat people and will provide for an orderly, safe departure.
  • The service will be briefer than a typical Eucharist, to provide for minimum exposure.
  • If you are feeling ill, have been exposed to Covid-19, or have a compromised immune system, you should consider worshipping at home on one of the sites suggested in our newsletters.

If you have questions, please direct them to our interim rector, Fr. David, at canonjohnson@gmail.com or by contacting the parish office.

 

We truly hope this is beginning of the restoration of Sunday morning services at St. Paul’s.
