Precautionary measures against COVID-19: Please note that masks are recommended, but no longer required. However, our Bishop, following state and CDC guidelines, continues to urge the use of masks while singing. We will maintain our practice of receiving Communion in one-kind only, namely in the Bread. Theologians for centuries and still today remind us that Christ is present in either or both elements of communion.
