***UPDATE PLEASE READ***
After reviewing the health map at the Diocesan website and out of an abundance of caution, I am going to postpone the Eucharistic Service scheduled for this afternoon at 4:00 PM on the grounds of St. Francis Church.
Though it is a beautiful day and the risks taken under these conditions out of doors is small, the fact that the new cases per 100,000 population for the past seven days is now in the Red Zone at 28.5. and has been for over a week, I believe that it makes sense to lower the risk even further by staying home.
The Vaccine is coming, so it seems that being patient and careful in this surge a little while longer is not only prudent but the right kind of care to offer our church.
I look forward to gathering when the numbers are lower and the weather permits.
In Christ’s peace,
David J. Lucey
