St. George's Episcopal Church: Welcome back to church -- Sunday, 09-12-2021

Welcome Back to Churchlease Join Us for In-Person Worship

Welcome Back

September 12, 2021

 

 

Please Join Us As Our Parish Opens for

In- Person Worship

 

 

This coming Sunday, September 12, 2021 we will reopen St. George's Parish for both the 7:30 a.m. service and the 10:00 a.m. service. We welcome all to join us as we worship together for the first time in 19 months.

 

I am excited for our opportunity to worship together again -- to being together, safely, in Christian community. As we prepare for our reopening, I am encouraged by data reported by the New York Times September 7, 2021. The article reports that data now available points to the fact that for those who are vaccinated the COVID infection is uncommon - about one in 5,000 per day with some areas such as the Northeast one in 10,000.

 

This new data provides a lot of comfort as we reopen. However, I also remain cautious as we come together to worship because I want to ensure the health and safety of our entire community. To that end, I am implementing a phased approach to our worship.

 

Phased Liturgical Approach: In order for St. George's to be a safe environment for in-person worship, I have taken steps to phase our liturgy during this time. This phased approach will limit the number of people serving on Sundays as well as our liturgical music. The phases will be implemented with a careful eye on COVID and following the CDC, NIH, and City of Washington's guidelines.

 

Actions Taken: In addition to a liturgical phased approach, we have also taken actions that enhance the overall safety of our indoor environment. Those actions are listed at the end of this email.

 

Zoom: For those who do not feel comfortable gathering at St. George's for in-person worship, we will continue to be on zoom. Please see below for the zoom information for our Sunday 10:00 a.m. worship.
