DIOCESAN UPDATE RE: IN-PERSON WORSHIP:
Because of the ten-fold increase in the number of active cases of COVID in Lewis & Clark County, and at the request of the County Health Department and the Diocese, we are strongly recommending a return to masks during worship. In order to be sensitive to providing adequate distancing during communion, we will also be coming off the altar rail once more and re-implementing communion stations. The chalice will remain available to those who wish to receive. These changes will remain in effect until the number of active cases declines again.
While receiving the vaccine is a personal choice that will be respected, we continue to strongly support the vaccine for all our members. In Lewis and Clark County the vaccine has proven to be 99.99% effective against COVID-19 and the Delta variant. Of all the new cases, 96.8% have been in un-vaccinted people.
