Morning Prayer on the Rectory Lawn – Sundays 9:00 a.m.
Beginning Sunday, June 7th, there will be an “in person” service of Morning Prayer on the Rectory Lawn each Sunday in June, weather permitting. Social distancing rules will be followed. This service will not be broadcast / streamed / Zoom.
This will be the regular service from The Book of Common Prayer. You may either print the service booklet before hand, or bring your own prayer books. There will not be copies provided as part of the current social distancing rules. (If you borrow a prayer book from St. John’s, please just stack it in the narthex when you return it. We will figure out later “disinfectant protocols” to deal with them.)

Please note that if you wish to sit, you will need to bring your own chairs. And currently the Rectory proper is off limits with social distancing rules, including the bathroom.

Evening Worship on the Rectory Lawn — Currently Scheduled for June 14th & 28th at 5 p.m.
These services are in addition to the standard Zoom Sunday morning devotion and will be held weather permitting. They will be “in person” on the Rectory Lawn for those who feel comfortable doing so. Social distancing rules will be followed. They will not be broadcast / streamed / Zoom.
People are welcome to stay and chat afterwards. And I am not opposed that a picnic dinner follows afterwards for those who want a longer outing on the Rectory Lawn. However, food is not to cross “household boundaries.” That is to say, this will not be a potluck parish event but rather a venue for individual households who choose to use the Rectory Lawn as a park for their own private picnic dinner.
Please note that if you wish to sit, you will need to bring your own chairs. And currently the Rectory proper is off limits with social distancing rules, including the bathroom. (Also, it is a bit messy given that I haven’t had to clean the same way with the Bible Study being done via Zoom…)
