This Sunday brings to a close our worship schedule of two Eucharists each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., with the later Eucharist on the Good Shepherd Green, weather permitting. We are grateful for all those who have attended and supported these services: altar guild, ushers, lectors, musicians, and those who have set up and cleaned up after each service.

It is no longer necessary to sign up for worship service attendance in advance. 

Next week on Trinity Sunday, May 30, we return to one Eucharist on Sundays at 10:00 am in the church and online. Capacity is limited to 60%, masking continues, and we will continue some of our efforts in physical distancing.

We have returned to in-person church school for children. O
ur CE Committee has worked diligently to make this possible, and it is important to know that we are following more-extensive protocols than necessary: both to minimize risk and to keep children from being "close contacts" in the case of possible exposure. Church school has relocated to larger rooms with superior ventilation. Atrium will be in the Loring Room and Elementary Sunday School will be in the downstairs nursery. Children must wear masks and stay more than six feet apart.

Congratulations to our graduating seniors! This Sunday, we will recognize our graduates, offer a gift to each of them, and they will take part leading in our worship.
