A note from Fr. Bob - September news

It’s finally here!  We’re coming back inside the church to worship.  It will have been 2 weeks short of 6 months since we could be together.  Oh, the live streaming was really pretty good.  The parking lot    Eucharist was nice, but hot.  I’m really looking forward to Sunday, September 6. We will gather together for our 8:00 Rite 1 service and our 10:30 Rite 2 service. Of course, some things will be a bit different.  Our first priority is to keep us all as safe as possible.  We may be overreacting, but I can’t allow us to  under react.

The first thing you’ll notice is that there won’t be any coffee or getting together in the kitchen before or after services.  We’re still not ready to have meals or social times.

The only entrance to the Nave will be through the Narthex (the Illinois doors).  The door to the Ohio parking lot marked Kindermusik will be open.  However, you will have to walk through the building, outside and in through the Illinois doors.

The Nave is set up so that every other pew is closed, and the two sides are offset.  Family units may sit together without distancing, but different households, including individuals, must stay 6 feet apart. 

Masks are required.

At Communion each pew will come to the front alternating right then left and so on.  Please maintain distance between each other in line.  Once you receive the host, please return to your seat by the side aisle.

After the service, please leave starting with the back pews and proceeding forward.

At the recommendation of the CDC, National Church and the diocese, we will not have congregational singing at the 10:30 service.

We will continue to live stream the 10:30 service.

It sounds complicated, but we’ll figure it out.  And, as the weeks go by, we’ll fix what isn’t working.

I’m hoping that the joy and excitement of being together and taking Communion together will outweigh the strangeness.  I do want to thank the Altar Guild, our choir, Bert Bostic, Matthew Molinar, Victor  Parra, Brenda Avelar, Emily Peek, Kaitlyn Klattenhoff, Kevin Leoffer, and Amanda Hill for providing  music, and all the readers for being so flexible during this very odd time. And, thank all of you for your flexibility and understanding.  We’ll get through this and emerge even stronger than before. Fr. Bob
