Returning to In-Person Worship
On August 9th, 2021, the Center for Disease Control announced that Onondaga County, along with several other New York Counties have seen a HIGH RISE IN NEW COVID-19 INFECTIONS.
While St. David’s Vestry has consistently followed a slow and cautious path, St. David’s has taken a pro-active position in reinstating a MASKING REQUIREMENT FOR ANYONE ENTERING THE ST. DAVID’S BUILDING. Regardless of a person’s vaccination status.
We continue to encourage Social Distancing except within a family group.
We also continue to receive the Holy Eucharist in both kinds.
What the way forward looks like:
- Careful and Cautious
- The Peace: Because of physical contact and proximity concerns members are asked to limit physical contact to those in your own family group, and to share the Peace in other ways through nods, waves, etc. to other parishioners.
- Eucharist: The Eucharist will return to being celebrated in both kinds.
Singing continues to be restricted, except by up to four (4) people per service, who maintain a safe from all others.
We will continue to require reservations for all services and events for the time being.
The website will be updated every Sunday afternoon with the links for the next service.
An email will be sent out on Monday each week with two (2) buttons. One will have the link for 8 am and the other for the 10 am service. Everyone MUST register for a service due to the requirement of contact tracing. Anyone who wishes to be on the “Automatic Reservation” list should contact David Burgess as soon as possible.
We will still have a need for lay participation, whether live or recorded.
