Dear friends,

Evensong is evening at 7:00 pm. In-person attendance is possible for a limited number of attendees, and we invite the wider parish to join online each Wednesday evening.

Recordings of Evensong remain on our YouTube channel after they are broadcasted, and you can engage in worship later if you cannot join us in real time.

Thank you for continuing your support of Good Shepherd. Pray for your parish, its leadership, and our common future.

thanks, peace, Jay+

General information regarding our outdoor worship: 
Register in advance (click here or use the link above) if you plan to attend.*  

Attendance is limited to 25% of the seating capacity, both on the Good Shepherd Green and in the church.

Arrive and depart through the Beacon Street entry. Do not come through the building or down the back driveway unless you need to avoid using stairs. 

Individual bulletins include music, readings, and text from the prayer book. These are only used once and are recycled. 

Tents/ canopies are provided for shade and protection from the elements. Spread out as you are able and never ignore guidance on physical separation.

Each individual/ family must sit at least six feet apart. Please bring your own lawn chair or blanket. 

Wear a mask upon arrival and departure, and continue to wear your mask as much as possible throughout the service. 

Communion is distributed individually, using separate vessels. Please bring your own or use one of the paten/ chalice pairs at the church. Wine is only available when received in individual vessels. 

To access the restrooms, walk via the playground up the rear driveway, not through the entrance to the Common Room. 

In the case of inclement weather, worship will move into the church. Inside, other guidance and limits are in place. 

*Advance registration helps us to plan for your safety and to cap attendance at a safe level. We will endeavor to accommodate those who have not registered in advance, though this will only be done if space is available and physical distancing is possible.

We know that Christ is raised
and dies no more,
Embraced by death
he broke its fearful chords.
And our despair he turned to 
blazing joy. Alleluia!

We share by water
in his saving death.

Reborn we share with him
an Easter life.
As living members of one
Living Christ. Alleluia!
