Health Precautions recommended by the Church with regard to the corona virus.

There is no pandemic and we should not spread alarm, but we will adopt the following guidelines, to be prudent given the uncertainty surrounding the spread of the virus.  

  • Communion should be received on the hand, not by mouth, nor by intinction (dipping the host into the chalice)
  • All may still drink from the chalice. However anyone who is concerned about doing so should receive the host only. It is the understanding of the church that Christ is fully present in the host.
  • Anyone with the symptoms of a cough or cold should not receive from the chalice, or exchange the peace with a handshake. Anyone with a severe cough or cold would be well-advised to stay at home.
  • Others may still shake hands at the peace, however none should feel obliged. A bow of the head to accompany the greeting will suffice.
  • Holy water stoups will be removed.
