Bishop Reed's Letter provides guidance on staged reopening for in-person
worship. The overarching concern is that risk remains. We are still living in
the midst of a global pandemic. The Diocesan Guidelines and local plans cannot
eliminate the risk. Our goal is to act intelligently and faithfully to reduce
risk to one another and to our communities.
We are mindful that some 90% of our congregation is in the at-risk group and
vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus. So, I am especially guarded about our restart
since our area statistics are so sketchy and testing is so limited. I am
grateful for the live streaming worship we are currently offering to help us
stay connected. These online services will continue in the some fashion even
after we restart public worship.
I personally applaud Father Jim's assurance that the online services will
continue when the Ministry Center reopens for in-person worship.--Jo-Mae
During this time of social distancing we are learning what it means to be the
Body of Christ while not gathering publicly for worship. We will be staying
connected to the St. Peter's community online. Check out our
page and attend the Facebook Live services.
Videos of the live services will remain on our Facebook page to watch at your
convenience. Watching the video live has the benefits of allowing you to add
your comments and connect with members of your St. Peter's Family during the
service. However, you can still add comments while watching the recorded
services. We look forward to your comments, "Likes," and
