Attendance at church is open to everyone.

If you, or a family member, are feeling unwell, or have symptoms of cold or flu, PLEASE STAY HOME until you feel better and no longer have symptoms.

Social distancing is no longer required, but recommended to the extent possible. Particpants are urged to avoid "bunching" and maintain a safe distance from others when seated in pews and receiving communion.

Masks are not required but are WELCOME especially during flu/cold season.

These simple acts of Christian love and charity towards the elderly and vulnerable in our parish family are greatly appreciated!
