Current Schedule Update

Beginning Sunday, September 13, our service times will be

8:00 AM – Rite 1 8:00 AM – Rite II 11:00 AM – Zoom worship

The Nursery will not be available at this time.

The church and Waterman Hall have been deep cleaned and the carpet was cleaned as well.  Entry to the church will be through the front door only and exiting will be through the side door.  (In the event you are not able to use the stairs, an exception will be made to use the side door with the ramp). Waterman Hall will be available for restroom use only.  Only one person in the rest rooms at a time.  The kitchen door will be locked so you will want to park in the front of the church. 

Face masks must be worn when entering the church.  Reserved signs will be on the pews available for use, and you will be able to sit only with your family. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available if you forget yours. Hands must be sanitized before accepting communion.  Wine will not be given.  Fr. Georges and Fr. Mark will wash and sanitize their hands before giving communion.  Please leave your mask on until you return to your pew to take your communion.  Everyone should follow social distancing of 6’ apart. Marks on the carpet will indicate a distance of 6’.  No handshakes or hugs during the Peace, please, just a sign of peace.  Bulletins will be on the usher’s table in the back of the church.  Bulletins should be taken home or placed in the recycle bin in the back of the church – please do not leave in the pews.  We will not be passing the baskets for your offering, please place your envelopes and offerings in the basket provided, or mail to the church office. The pews and doors will be wiped down after each service.

Unfortunately, we are not able to have singing at this time. Larry and Sarah will provide organ music for the Prelude and Postlude.  There will be no coffee hour and you are asked leave the church building as soon as the service is over.

These precautions are for your safety and should be adhered to.  Thank you all for your understanding as we work to open our church in this new environment. Please call the office if you have any questions.

Praying the Daily Office

At the heart of Anglican spirituality is prayer. Prayer affords us a personal connection with the Divine. When we pray, we talk with God. This serves an endless list of needs, and provides an endless list of benefits. If you’ve been seeking a way to fit more prayer into your daily life, the practice of praying the Daily Office – morning and evening prayer – can be a fantastic way to build a habit of prayer.

“Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.” ~ 1 Chronicles 16:11
