  • COVID Update for September 2021


    The St. Francis COVID Safety Task Force (CSTF) met on August 23, 2021, to review current guidelines and protocols. The CSTF continues to monitor the rise of positivity rates in our area, particularly in relation to the “Delta” variant. No significant changes to the current parish protocols are being made at this time. However, the following points were affirmed:

    ● Masking is strongly encouraged for everyone gathering for worship indoors at St. Francis. Masking is required for non-vaccinated individuals, including children.

    ● Vaccinations are strongly encouraged for all eligible members of our parish. Vaccinations are required for anyone serving in a ministry capacity during Sunday morning worship, including Choir Members, Lay Readers, Intercessors, Acolytes, Ushers, Greeters, Altar Guild, and the Audio/Visual Team.

    ● The return of indoor, post-service Coffee Hour and in-person Lectionary Bible Study will be delayed until regular, indoor gatherings are deemed reasonably safe.

    ● DIOPA protocols for the return of Church School (for children) and Youth Groups are being reviewed.

    ● Beginning September 12, 2021, the 8 am and 10 am services of Holy Eucharist will be held in the Nave, subject to all current protocols, and with generous social-distancing and ventilation options.

    ● The 10 am service will continue to be streamed on Facebook and YouTube.

    The CSTF is thankful for your support throughout the pandemic. Every significant, COVID-related decision at St. Francis derives from the input of the Lay leadership that makes up the committee. We appreciate your ongoing patience, understanding, and flexibility as we seek to make our worship as safe as possible for all people.

    Note: It is the position of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania and the Clergy and Lay Leadership of St. Francis-in-the-Fields that the three primary COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States (Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson) are safe and effective at reducing both the severity and spread of COVID-19. We encourage all eligible, unvaccinated members of St. Francis to consult their physician about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

    At all times, we ask that care and concern be shown toward others who are present for worship. Those who feel sick are asked to remain at home, attend virtually, and seek medical care if necessary. Those who are eligible and choose to remain unvaccinated are asked to especially consider the weak and vulnerable among us, taking all necessary precautions to reduce the potential spread of infection.
