Changes to Advertised Weekly Worship
Mid-week Eucharist: The Wednesday 7am Eucharist is now cancelled until further notice beginning tomorrow, March 18th . We will continue to review the situation week by week.
Morning Prayer: Tuesday thru. Thursday, Morning Prayer will still be said at 9am in the chapel. I also encourage you to follow A Morning at the Office, Forward Movement’s Episcopal Morning Prayer. You can also find daily updated morning, midday, evening and night prayer here in simple text format. Remember, saying one of the four daily offices found in the Book of Common Prayer is a way to link into the Church’s world-wide cycle of public prayer like a lamp plugging into the electrical power source.
Meditation Hour: Thursdays 5:30 – 6:30 will still be held via Zoom – click here for invitation.
Sundays: The church will remain closed for Sunday worship until further notice. Following the pattern for this past Sunday, Sung Morning Prayer will be posted online for Sunday morning.
Holy Week and Easter: Online Eucharists will be streamed using Zoom on Palm Sunday, March 5th at 10am, and on Maundy Thursday, March 9th at 7pm. The Solemn Liturgy of Good Friday will be streamed on March 10th at 7pm. The Great Vigil of Easter will be streamed at 7pm Easter Saturday Eve, and Choral Eucharist will be streamed on Easter Day, March 12th at 10am.
Again, it is with the utmost regret that I have to announce these measures. I have tried to balance the need to flatten the curve of infection spread in line with the guidance given by Governor Raimondo and reiterated by the Bishop Nicholas, while at the same time maintaining a semblance of worship routine that includes opportunities for safe public prayer and meditation.
Please remember social distancing does not mean social isolation. If you find yourself feeling isolated or in need of practical assistance, please let us know. The best way to do so is to phone the office between 9:30 and 2:30 weekdays or to email Susan Esposito, Linda+ or myself for a quick response.
