Information about our regathering for in-person worship,
following the time of COVID-19 closures.
In-Person Worship Sundays at 9:30 Reserve a spot in lawn or car today!
Our highest priority in planning for this time has been the health and safety of every one. And although we will begin to offer in-person worship, we will continue to offer online worship options for those who cannot or are not comfortable gathering in person.
Morning Prayer will be offered in the church yard.
We will be gathering for Morning Prayer on Sundays at 9:30 AM. Following are the guidelines we will follow:
The service will be held in the church yard in front of the church.
Attendees need to bring their own chairs or a blanket to sit on.
Masks must be worn by all & social distancing must be observed.
Attendance is limited to 25 people (this will increase once our county moves into green).
Advance reservations MUST be made. No walk-ins.
We will keep track of all in attendance so that we can contact everyone present if someone were test positive for COVID-19.
The service will be relaxed. Feel free to bring a beverage, an umbrella (for sun or rain protection), bug spray, sunscreen or anything else you may need.
Reservations will open each Monday for the following Sunday service. Online reservations can be made by clicking on the reservation box above. Once you have submitted the online form, we will be in touch with you to confirm your reservation. Your reservation is not confirmed until you hear back from us. If we have already reached our maximum capacity, you will have the option of signing up for the following Sunday. It is important to note that the attendance numbers will increase once Luzerne County moves in to green phase. At that time, we will continue to do advance reservations but will be able to take more of them.
We are working on a plan to broadcast audio to car radios. If all goes well, this should start happening in the middle of July. More to come soon regarding this.
The priority of the Episcopal Church, our Diocese and our Parish is the primacy of love and the health and safety of our people. We have made a conscious decision to move slowly and conservatively in our approach to re-gather. If we make a mistake in our re-gathering we would prefer to err on the side of love and safety. We do not want to jeopardize anyone’s health.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
We look forward to being together in worship soon!!
