COVID-19 Update - April 2021
As the Easter season begins, it is exciting to see some positive developments in the battle against COVID. Each day, more and more people are being vaccinated, and a palpable sense of relief is increasing. By this Sunday (April 11th), our entire regular Sunday worship team - myself, Joe and Diane - will be fully vaccinated, as will many other members of St. Francis. We are grateful for the gifts and talents of so many who have labored to research, create, manufacture, and distribute these vaccines. Despite the many challenges faced by any campaign of this scale, we can be proud of the speed and success with which this venture has been undertaken.
That being said, at St. Francis-in-the-Fields we will continue to proceed with caution, even as we slowly emerge from the isolation and separation of the pandemic. For the moment, we will continue to host a streaming-only service at 10 am on Sunday mornings. In addition, as of Easter Sunday, we have added an in-person, outdoor service at 11:30 am, weather permitting. To both exercise caution and be compliant with the Diocese of Pennsylvania, we will continue to follow certain restrictions: pre-registration, social distancing and masking will still be required.
Assuming vaccination rates increase and infection rates decrease, I am hopeful that in the coming weeks and months we will see more restrictions lifted and internal policies adjusted to reflect the positive developments. Our COVID Safety Task Force has done an outstanding job leading our congregation through this last, difficult year, and they will see us through to the finish line.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to cultivate a safe and healthy parish community where all people can find peace and love in Jesus Christ.
