Dear Christ Church Family,

As if you have not heard this before, but for us all, it bears repeating:  There is a pandemic abroad in the land and the numbers of those affected continues to rise. 

The COVID 19 report this week says:  “Thursday marked another high day of new confirmed COVID-19 cases with more than 1,300 reported. The percent of positive tests remains elevated at 9% and statewide hospitalizations increased to a new high of 857.”

“We know the increases we are seeing are not due to testing alone,” Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen said.

Face coverings while in public, social distancing and washing hands for at least 20 seconds remain strong proven methods to help slow the spread of the virus, and they are low-cost, low-tech ways to protect each other and communities without hurting the economy.”

At Christ Church we are fortunate to have adequate space to practice social distancing, and we have a safe way of serving the Holy Communion in two kinds.  And please use your mask as your choose.   

So, let us continue our safe practices during this remarkable time, and remember that in our actions we are caring about our neighbors.

See you in church Sunday morning,

Fr. John
