After a good bit of agonizing, reading, and consultation with parishioners, public health officials, and others I have decided to suspend this Sunday’s Eucharist.
Many of us, myself included, fall into the high-risk category in terms of age and pre-existing conditions. I respect those who are determined to keep the pattern of sacramental life going. I also find the call to do our part to “flatten the curve” by practicing social distancing very seriously.
We do not have to be spiritually isolated while we are physically isolated. At the bottom of this letter you will find instructions to log on to an All Saints Zoom account so we can interact on Sunday at 10:00 to say Morning Prayer together. We will follow the service with a virtual coffee hour.
