Gathering in-person at St. Paul’s

Based on the guidance of our Bishop and the CDC, beginning May 23, 2021, St. Paul’s is lifting social distancing, room capacity and masking requirements. Those who are not fully vaccinated or are at high risk should continue to wear masks while indoors. This is a way we continue to care for our parish’s children who cannot yet be vaccinated and others at risk. By using our facilities, you agree that you understand and assume the risk of potential exposure to COVID-19, and agree to release and hold St. Paul’s harmless from any claim associated with exposure to the virus.

During Worship

  1. Wine at communion will be received by intinction. When you receive the bread, if you wish, the priest will dip the wafer into the wine and place it on your hand. If you prefer not to receive the wine, you may say, “No wine.”
  2. Socially-distanced seating is available in the first rows on the lectern side of the nave. We ask those using this seating to be masked.
  3. We will not pass the plate during the Offertory. Plates will be located at the exit for your weekly gift.
  4. Nursery is available for children (birth-5 years). Children over 2 years old should wear masks while indoors.
  5. Hand sanitizer is located throughout the building and in worship spaces for your use.
