My dear friends in Christ,
I pray continually that you are doing well.
From the Bishop’s office – “As you may be aware, Premier Doug Ford announced today that the gathering sizes for private social gatherings has been reduced to 10 people inside and 25 people outside. This does not apply to staffed facilities and businesses or to places of worship. Our diocesan guidelines of a maximum of … 50 people … that can be seated safely distanced still applies. Following the diocesan guidelines, social distancing, wearing a face mask, and frequent hand washing will help keep the risk of COVID-19 transmission in our buildings low.”
So, we will gather for Holy Communion at 8am and 10am in our beloved and sacred space. If you have RSVP’d for Sunday worship, please do bring your mask and be prepared to listen carefully to directions from myself and the team greeting you at the main church door. The doors will open approximately 15 minutes before each service. At this time, we are unable to gather after the service for refreshments.
Additionally, we will be gathering online via YouTube at 10am – https://youtu.be/_XbHcSVbNEg. if you are more comfortable worshiping from afar. We will continue the pattern of joint online worship with St. Augustine, St. James, and the Parish of the Southern Trinity (Colchester & Harrow) that we established way back in March. Also, I am working through the technical requirements to offer live streams of our 10am Sunday morning worship, watch for information on that in the near future.
I look forward to seeing you online or onsite tomorrow.
