From the Bishop: Updated COVID -19 Guidelines: Phase 2(d)
St. Matthew’s, Kenedy had been scheduled to host 5th Sunday in November. Due to rising numbers of COVID, and out of an abundance of caution, this has been cancelled. We will get through this. I pray we can all, safely, be together soon. Blessings.
From the Bishop. This can also be found under the top line menu tab, COVID-19 INFORMATION. I thought I would put it here for easier finding. Stay safe. Clarifying Guidelines for Phased Return to Congregational Life
Yeee – haaa! Our PIM churches, being compliant with Diocesan directives, will be able to restart in person worship next Sunday, 6 Sept. Our Clergy will begin their regular rotation, with the exception of our Canon Missioner. Rev. Gina continues to recover. As a result of this, St. Matthew’s will have Morning Prayer. All others will have a Priest. It will be outstanding to be together once more!
