IMPORTANT COVID—19 UPDATE:
Change in Sunday Services
The winter wave of the pandemic is here, and the bishop has urged all parishes to pare back in person Sunday services and revert to live-stream-only where possible. Therefore, this Sunday’s services, November 22nd, will be limited to 25 persons at each service, and the following two Sundays, November 29th and December 6th, will be live streamed only.
The diocese will reassess the situation at that time and offer updated guidance. It saddens me to take this step but, again, my duty is always to do what I must to care for you and our community. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. Fr. Winston+

For those Who are Ill
Merciful God, we entrust to your tender care those who are ill or in pain, knowing that whenever danger threatens your everlasting arms are there to keep them safe. Comfort and heal them, and restore them to health and strength; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
