Worship Update: Mask Mandate
On Wednesday, July 28th, due to the recent surge in COVID cases and the highly contagious nature of the Delta variant, Bishop Russell re-issued a diocesan mandate, asking the diocese to return to wearing masks during worship.
St. Paul's will comply with the bishop's guidance and resume wearing masks at any indoor services or gatherings (including Coffee Hour). Other ways we are mitigating risks are:
Returning to receiving communion in one kind (bread only).
Tracking of attendance at all services to facilitate contact tracing, should it become necessary.The vestry, and staff of Saint Paul's are very excited to now be able to offer three worship services each week.
Wednesday Noonday Eucharist w/Healing Service
This service occurs at 12:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. For more information, click here.
Sunday Morning Services - 7:30 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. (10 a.m. with livestream)
In both services, we need to follow these steps:
- Masks are required.
- There is no longer an attendance limit for services.
- Music will now be instrumental and voice.
- Communion will be in one-kind - the bread.
- We have shortened the service (and the sermon) as provided by the rubrics of the Book of Common Prayer.
We are also excited that full communion and Coffee Hour have returned as well.
