+ Following Bp. Michael's directive, we have suspended all public worship as of Sunday, March 22, and continuing through at least the end of March.
+ This suspension of public worship does not affect our personal lives of prayer, which will continue. Resources for making a "spiritual communion" during this hiatus may be found HERE. We are also publishing a weekly resource for spiritual encouragement found HERE.
+ This suspension is being done for the benefit of those most vulnerable and for the well-being of our health care system by slowing down the transmission of disease. It is a radical expression of what it means to love God by loving our neighbor.
+ You may choose to worship online during this time. One possibility is to join the worship offered at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC (www.cathedral.org) using the "Watch Live" feature, which will take you to the cathedral's channel on YouTube.
+ Parishioners are asked to maintain contact with each other via phone, e-mail, notes, &c., working to meet needs and keep connection. We are a “low tech/high touch” community, requiring creativity in such a situation as this.
+ We are grateful for all who pledge to give tithes and those who bring offerings. These gifts are vital to the ongoing operations of the parish, even in challenging seasons such as this one. Most banks and credit unions offer Bill Pay through their online banking system at no cost to you. Learn more on our Giving page.
+ Further information about how we will operate as a community during this period will be forthcoming. Practical suggestions for how to minister one to another during this time are welcome.
