Yesterday diocesan clergy met with Bishop Fisher by Zoom. Due to the recent rise in Covid 19 cases, Bishop Fisher has advised us to halt in-person indoor worship. Therefore, and especially out of loving concern for keeping everyone safe and healthy, we will return to online Sunday worship only. There will be one service of Holy Eucharist via Facebook livestream at 10 AM this Sunday.
The St. John's staff, clergy, vestry and other lay leaders have started to revise plans for Advent and Christmas worship and activities as well as for children's and adult formation and ways to stay connected. More information on these will be following soon.
I am so grateful at how well this community has responded and adapted to the changing course of this pandemic. Please continue in prayer for one another, for those in need, and for our health care workers and researchers.
May we experience God's love enfolding us tenderly.
Grace and peace,
(The Rev. Dr.) Julianne Buenting+
