Effective August 1, 2021
Due to the recent surge in COVID cases in our local area and new guidance from the CDC, the Bishop is requiring all those assisting with the distribution of communion to wear a mask. This means that clergy and lay eucharistic minsters will be wearing masks during the distribution of communion.
Anyone who has not been vaccinated is requested to please wear a mask and consider sitting in our balcony for your own protection. If you have not been vaccinated, I again want to strongly encourage you to get vaccinated. It is safe and effective. The vast majority of patients filling our hospitals are unvaccinated. As of July 27, 114 out of the 126 positive COVID-19 admissions at Archbold Hospital had not received the COVID-19 vaccine.
effective may 23, 2021
We will be providing two spaces for people who want to attend worship in person:
- Downstairs masks will be optional;
- Upstairs masks and social distancing will be required.
Anyone wishing to limit their exposure to unmasked people will have their own entrance to go straight to the balcony. We will also be providing pre-consecrated communion in sealed containers for those seated in the balcony. If, however, you still feel uncomfortable, we will be continuing our Sunday livestream for you to join us from home.
