Attached you will find the latest directives for Episcopal congregations in the State of Michigan concerning in-person worship during this time in the global pandemic. This e-mail is to inform you of how we will offer worship at St. Luke’s given this new situation.
Evening Prayer on Facebook will continue to occur every evening but Wednesdays. Morning Prayer by Telephone will begin on Tuesdays and Thursdays In September, at 10:00 AM.
The Wednesday Noon and 6:30 PM services will be held outdoors, weather permitting. Please register for these services (by the Tuesday before) at email@example.com or by calling Linda Kreg at 269-345-8553. If there are strong winds and/or any precipitation, these services will not occur and the cancellation will be posted on our Website and Facebook page. Special Note: on Wednesday, August 5th there will be no services as the Rector will be away.
The Sunday 8 and 10:00 services will also be held outdoors, weather permitting. Please register for these services (by the Thursday before) at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Linda Kreg at 269-345-8553. We will decide on holding these service, or not, based on the prior Thursday’s weather report and any cancellations will be posted on our Website and Facebook page.
We will also continue to offer the Sunday liturgy on-line. This offering will be a recording of the Sunday liturgy at the church. Soon we plan for it to be live-streamed. If the outdoor service is canceled due to weather, the clergy and some staff will record a service in the building for our on-line offering.
As always, it is our goal to offer meaning worship both on-line and in-person. We hope, that you will choose the service that feels safe for you, and we trust that if you have symptoms of any illness you will stay home. We also hope that we will be back in the church building before our weather turns cold.
Please remember to pray for all people struggling and suffering with this disease. Please pray also for those who have died and those who are grieving.
Yours in Christ,
The Clergy and Staff of St. Luke’s
