GRACE CHURCH COVID PROTOCOL
 The Vestry has approved an update to the COVID protocols
 in line with recent guidance issued from ECCT.

 For Communion, we will receive the host at the rail around the altar.   

We will serve the wine in separate cups for each parishioner. 

We look forward to worshiping with you.

Church School in August

     For school-age St. Peter's members! We are offering Summer Sunday Socials at the 9:00am Sunday services on August      28. We hope you can join us for some fun while we reconnect and plan some activities for our time together in the Fall!

 

Chapel on the Green on August 28

     St. Peter's will be hosting Chapel on the Green in New Haven on Sunday, August 28th at 2:00pm. Everyone is welcome to      help prepare food or come and serve in New Haven.

Wine Resumes During Communion

     St. Peter's has resumed the practice of offering Communion in two-kinds, both the bread and the wine. As in pre-pandemic      times, parishioners will have the option to either sip from the chalice, or to intinct (dip) the bread into the chalice. Please      understand that consuming the wine, or not, is your choice; as we have all learned over the 2+ years, we fully receive      Communion when we receive in one-kind. In fact, long before the pandemic, many of our siblings in Christ refrained from      communion wine for various personal reasons.

 

Related Public Health Information

     Please continue to be considerate of others. If you are feeling unwell, please consider staying home, and at the very least,      please refrain from partaking in the common cup. Masking remains optional and welcomed around St. Peter's. COVID-19      (among other public health concerns) is still with us, and we will continue to remain vigilant should adjustments to our      shared parish life become necessary. Finally, as a basic public health measure to combat any range of illnesses, let us all      continue to practice good hand hygiene, through washing and sanitizers.

 

Thank you for your continued attention and cooperation in caring for each other. As always, please contact Fr. Derek or any Vestry member if you have questions.
