COVID-19 In-Person Gathering Safety Protocols

For your safety and the safety of all our parishioners, visitors, and staff, we follow these procedures as required by the Diocese of Washington:

  • Everyone must wear a mask. Please bring your own.
  • Everyone must wear a mask indoors.
  • All participants will mask during the service. If leading worship in a speaking role, you may unmask to speak your part, then immediately re-mask.
  • If you are in a higher-risk group, please consider continuing to join us virtually.

Eucharist (Communion) Protocols

Everyone is invited to receive Holy Communion. Communion will be distributed by the priest standing below the altar steps, center aisle. The priest and the communion minister will be masked and gloved. Please approach the priest by the center aisle. You may receive the bread (wafer) only, or you may have your wafer partially dipped into the wine by the priest. The priest will place the wafer in your hand. Gluten free wafers are available by request. If you prefer not to receive communion, please cross your arms across your torso for the priest to bless you. Please return to your seat by the side aisle.
