PARISH PANDEMIC-RECOVERY UPDATES CONTINUE TO EVOLVE

CURRENT CHANGES TO PROTOCOLS

The red pew ropes, in place to assist with social-distancing since the re-opening of our church last Pentecost, have been removed, except for the area in the southeast front section of the church.  Parishioners are asked to be courteous and welcoming as others enter the pews.  The section near the front of the church will remain roped for an as yet underdetermined  time to provide socially-distanced seating for those who still desire it.  We have also replaced the holy water stoups at the doorways, as well as the missal/hymn books in the pews–all in compliance with the directives of Bishop Noonan.  We also intend to restore passing the offering baskets through the pews to receive your gifts of stewardship in the near future.  As of now, members of the Assembly are encouraged by our Bishop to continue wearing face coverings.  Please use your own wise judgment in this matter.  Fr. Ben, Pastor
