St. Michael and All Angels
We seek to be a light of Christ in the community, where all are welcome to experience God's love and blessings.

Covid-19

(Last revised July 14, 2021)

We are proud to be a community where all are welcome, and we want to provide a safe environment for the health and well-being of our parishioners and guests. As the Covid-19 pandemic infections continue to trend downward in our area, new recommendations have been made regarding protocols while in our church building and on our grounds:

Masking

Indoors: Masking is optional for those who are fully vaccinated and required for those who are unvaccinated while indoors.

Outdoors: Masking is optional for all individuals (vaccinated and unvaccinated) while outdoors.

Receiving Communion

We have purchased individually packaged containers which contain a host and a small amount of wine. We invite all to come forward and receive a package. Once we have exhausted our current supply of individual packages, we will work to find a method for distribution which supports our understanding of Eucharist as consuming from a common cup.

Singing

Congregational singing is permitted. Masking while singing indoors is optional for those who are fully vaccinated and required for those who are unvaccinated.

Physical Distancing

The parish has returned to full capacity. If you wish to attend indoor worship in person while remaining distanced, please notify an usher or vestry member when you arrive and you will be directed to alternate seating.

Offerings

Passing of the collection plate during the offertory is permitted.

Contact tracing

All attendees must provide contact information for the party, consisting of a name and phone number, to the ushers at the rear of the church.

Gatherings and receptions

Large gatherings and special events are permitted with prior approval from clergy and wardens.

As a community, we will continue to support one another in times of trouble and in times of celebration. We encourage those who may be unable to attend in person to access our worship services remotely via our livestream on YouTube. We continue to promote vaccination, hand washing, good ventilation, and listening to our own bodies as the best way to see us through out of the pandemic.

This page will be continually reviewed and updated as guidelines change and the pandemic evolves.
