Covid-19 Safety

For the well-being of all in our congregation, we are taking direction from Public Health professionals and the Anglican Diocese of Niagara.

We have put into place the following practices: 

  • Maintain a physical distance of 2m between individuals who are not part of the same household for all ministries activities.

  • Masks are to be worn by all people over 2 years of age when indoors and when physical distance is difficult to maintain.

  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout the church for parishioners to use.

  • Clergy wash their hands both before and after worship and sanitize their hands before administering Communion.

  • Parishioners are screened before entry into the church. Those who are ill, or suspect they may be, are encouraged to stay at home to recover and to request a pastoral visit if desired.

  • We have adopted a contact-free Exchange of the Peace, with a smile, brief word or wave to those nearby. 

  • Clergy greets parishioners at the end of services without physical contact.

Canon Kathy invites the congregation to pray "for all who are ill with this virus, for their caregivers, and for healthcare workers and researchers working to limit the virus’ impact."

 

The diocese will continue to monitor the situation and provide parishes with the best evidence-based advice available from public health officials.
