COVID-19 Updates

 

Our church services went online in March 2020, but we opened to public worship in September. Unfortunately, Waterloo Region was designated a Red Zone and we closed again on Nov.29th. In person services returned on Wednesdays in June 2021, and on Sundays on Sept 12th. (Wed at 10 am, Sundays at 8 and 10 am).

Covid protocols for in-person worship include mask wearing and social distancing (seating is limited). Singing is permitted – prayer books and hymnals are in the pews. 

Mar 14, 2022 – From the Bishop’s office: 
As our province lessens COVID-19 restrictions, the diocese will also make some changes to our guidelines, effective Palm Sunday (April 10th). In order to allow parishes to plan for Holy Week, some changes are highlighted:

  • Parishes may cease contract tracing.
  • Parishes may remove physical distancing requirements and return to pre-COVID capacity limits. This also means that parishes may reinstitute processions and full choirs. 
  • For parishioners who find they are uncomfortable with this, options include attending the 8 am Sunday service, or Wednesday 10 am Eucharist service.

The requirement that facemasks be worn at all times by all persons over 2 years of age who can physically remove their facemask, remains in place. We will revisit this requirement after Easter Sunday.
