At St. John the Evangelist, the health and safety of our community is a priority. We have been constantly adapting our COVID-19 protocols to reflect the recommendations of public health officials and the Episcopal Church.
Our current safety protocols are:
Masking in worship is strongly recommended but not required, especially for those most susceptible to the virus.
We will practice “Holy Assent”; checking with others near us before removing our own masks (in groups and 1-on-1 meetings), before standing close, shaking hands, etc.
Educate our members about healthy practices and display signage about symptoms with a request to stay home if symptomatic.
Use the transept altar for Eucharist, so parishioners are not passing through the Chancel where choir members are singing.
- All paid personnel/staff are up to date and current on their Covid-19 vaccines and boosters, and encourage you to do the same.
